Kyle Cameron scored his first goal for York City

Hartlepool United sealed three points against 10-man York City, who stand on the brink of relegation from the Football League in League Two.

Nathan Thomas tapped in to put Pools in front before the Minstermen had Dave Winfield send off for a second yellow.

Kyle Cameron restored parity and got the visitors back in it as he headed Luke Summerfield's corner home.

At the other end, Michael Woods ensured victory for the hosts as he rose to nod home Carl Magnay's delivery.

The result means York remain 23rd in the table and are nine points adrift of safety with four games left to play.

Hartlepool, who were one place off the relegation places in 22nd when manager Craig Hignett was appointed in February, remain in 16th place.

York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York:

McNamara on Hartlepool v York

"I think first half we didn't hold the ball well enough to start with. I think at certain times we made things difficult for ourselves.

"I thought we played better at times when we were down to 10 men. The ball was sticking more in the final third.

"But playing for so long is always difficult, especially away from home."
