Match report: York City 3, Dagenham 1 - Sky Bet League Two

York Press: Striker Ryan Bowman fires in the opening goal in York City’s 3-1 win over Dagenham Striker Ryan Bowman fires in the opening goal in York City’s 3-1 win over Dagenham

CHINA have declared that 2014 will be The Year of the Horse and York City could not have been quicker out of the stalls since January 1.

Six points from a possible six have provided a welcome boost for a side that ended the last calendar year without a win in 11 matches.

Saturday’s 3-1 triumph over Dagenham & Redbridge, meanwhile, saw the Minstermen enjoy back-to-back home wins in the same season for only a second time during the last 50 fixtures at Bootham Crescent.

Two-goal Wes Fletcher and Ryan Bowman also offered a reminder that City do possess the firepower to pull further away from League Two’s lower reaches in coming weeks.

Fletcher, enjoying his first taste of regular senior football in 2013/14, has already hit double figures, while Bowman has a healthy ratio of five goals from only six league starts as a Minsterman.

Add to that mix the poaching instinct of nine-goal Ryan Jarvis, missing on Saturday with a hamstring strain, then even without throwing unknown quantity Shaq McDonald into the equation, Nigel Worthington’s squad is not short on potency.

Despite Dagenham’s 80th-minute consolation, confidently finished by Rhys Murphy after a Ben Davies mistake, the Minstermen have tightened up at the back too, with just five goals conceded in the last eight games, compared to 16 during the previous eight.

Worthington’s post-match announcement that midfielder Adam Reed has rejoined the club, in tandem with the continued pursuit of Cheltenham captain Russell Penn, should add to the new year cheer as well.

The Minstermen have been missing some attacking thrust from the middle of the park for considerable periods of the campaign and Reed’s performances for the club at the end of last season suggest he can help address that problem.

Plenty of reason for optimism then but, equally, Worthington’s warning that nothing has been achieved yet must be heeded.

Bottom-of-the-table Northampton’s coupon-busting win at promotion hopefuls Newport offered another illustration that no team is likely to surrender their Football League status without an almighty scrap during the second half of the season.

It also remains fresh in the memory that City briefly hit the heights in autumn with impressive triumphs against Scunthorpe (4-1), Portsmouth (4-2) and Torquay (3-0) before standards slipped prior to the last strains of Auld Lang Syne.

Being brave and seeking convincing victories, in the manner City set about Saturday’s second half, can now prove a new benchmark for Worthington’s team.

The first 45 minutes, however, will not be offered as a blueprint for future progress.

City’s cautious approach to that opening period was most starkly highlighted when Dagenham’s makeshift midfielder Luke Wilkinson, normally a centre-back, was visibly surprised to receive possession in his own half and see 30 yards of clear space in front of him.

Both managers also agreed later that the visitors were unfortunate not to be in front at the interval.

The game was less than three minutes old when, after Tom Platt had lost the ball on the edge of his own penalty box, visiting skipper Abu Ogogo headed over the bar from a Femi Ilesanmi cross.

Michael Ingham then saved a curling Zavon Hines free-kick but the City ’keeper’s blushes were spared on 14 minutes when he miscued his punch from Medy Elito’s corner and Lanre Oyebanjo headed off the line.

An Elito free-kick from the left went on to pick out Ogogo, who escaped Bowman’s attentions, for another free header that he could not keep on target from seven yards.

Further chances saw decent edge-of-the-box efforts from Elito and Murphy deflected off target – the latter by a team-mate.

At the other end, City only threatened briefly with a couple of hopeful Michael Coulson attempts from distance and a tamely struck Josh Carson free-kick.

Carson and Coulson, though, would both combine to tee up Bowman for the game’s deadlock breaker.

A poor kick by Daggers ’keeper Chris Lewington fell to Carson on the right wing.

His diagonal cross was then cushioned into Bowman’s path with one clever touch by Coulson and the former Hereford striker quickly nudged the ball into a favourable shooting position before beating a red-faced Lewington from ten yards.

After Murphy had ghosted in between Keith Lowe and Oyebanjo to steer a shot wide from Gavin Hoyte’s cross, Lewington was embarrassed again on 64 minutes.

The 25-year-old shot-stopper could only watch Fletcher’s left-wing cross sail over his head and into the visitors’ net after the City striker had displayed typical tenacity to bustle past Hoyte after collecting Davies’ pass down the flank.

A couple of penalty appeals for Murphy and Carson fell on deaf ears shortly afterwards with the Dagenham striker booked after being accused of diving.

But Fletcher went on to claim his second of the game, sidestepping a Scott Doe challenge before beating Lewington from eight yards with a low shot after Coulson had sent in a cross following another right-wing interception.

Lewington kept out further Bowman and Fletcher shots as City threatened to run riot before Murphy found Ingham’s bottom right-hand corner from ten yards after Davies sent him clear on goal trying to intercept a through ball.

It was the hosts, though, who came closest to adding to the scoreline during the closing stages.

Coulson was denied by Lewington’s legs and Fletcher fired across the face of goal after David McGurk strode majestically out of defence and sent the hat-trick seeking striker clear through the left channel with an exquisite through ball.


Match facts

York City 3 (Bowman 52; Fletcher 65, 71), Dagenham 1

York City

Michael Ingham 7
Given a couple of tricky moments, but largely untroubled and kicking did not appear to be affected by recent injury.

Lanre Oyebanjo 8
Made a strong and confident return to right-back, but kept his attacking contributions conservative.

Keith Lowe 7
Refused to be beaten even if a striker initially got the better of him, attaches himself to opponents like a limpet.

David McGurk 8
Immaculate throughout and current run of games is giving everybody hope he can become a permanent fixture again.

Ben Davies 7 
Competed well and picked his passes sensibly before being caught out for Dagenham’s consolation.

Josh Carson 7
Kept plugging away down the right flank and worked hard for the team prior to his second-half withdrawal.

Lewis Montrose 7
Quiet in periods but disciplined and never looked in danger of the tenth caution that would lead to a two-game ban.

Tom Platt 7
Found it hard to get to grips with the game during the first half, but busier and more effective after the interval.

Michael Coulson 8
Made important contributions for his team’s first and third goals and always willing to get a shot away.

Ryan Bowman 7
Once more displayed important striker’s knack of always being a goal threat even when not at the top of his game.

Wes Fletcher 9
STAR MAN – constantly dragged defenders into uncomfortable positions and deserved a touch of fortune for his first goal.

Subs: Sander Puri (for Carson, 77), Ashley Chambers (for Coulson, 84).

Got to say, I did not expect this turnaround in fortunes so hats off to the players and to NW who really has them fighting for the club. Not a perfect performance or a pretty game, but it's great to see us contesting everything and taking shots as soon as the goal is in sight (something NW has been encouraging them to do, if the post-match radio interview is anything to go by). There are some more winnable games coming up, so by the end of January things could be looking ok again. But we still need to take it one game at a time.

January is turning out to be a big month for us! The team are growing in confidence - Coulson back to his best. After one or two shaky moments in the first half the defence had the measure of (nearly) all Dagenhams attacks.

Two more very winnable games coming up, if we can pick up another 6pts the league table might look a lot more interesting....

Great result after we were 2nd best in the first half. Played much better 2nd half and thought our 2 strikers and wide men were a real threat. Fletcher fully deserved MOM and great to see Coulson back on form as I've always rated him but thought his days at the club were over.

if Reed has signed along with hopefully experienced L2 central midfielder then we can start to look forward with real optimism again.

Yes indeed, I have made a couple of forecasts on here one that my belief that we will finish in the play offs based on Analysed Statistical Probability based on
the Law of Averages , Secondly I forecast that the next three results would be
3-1 2-0 4-2. CHEEZY-PUFFS first one up picked up £270 . so you see my Crystal Ball works. And put £100 on at 33/1 to finish in the play offs .

Already put my comments on last article but should add we need to practice corners. Too many not getting past first defender. Great result though.

Well done City. Much needed turnaround. Reed would be a good acquisition and I like the look of Penn. Been told we are in for Connell (again) from Bradford. Anyone know about this?

YOU SPOTTED IT ...Go to the top of the class. I think this one has run its course, FOOTBALL lets talk about that, when you look at the BBC Stats it didn't tell the whole story, Yes we struggled in the first half to get hold of a couple their attackers but we have got to give them the team fair dues for seeing the half out , then it was a fine performance , one that we can take a lot of pluses , NW have said this was he wanted and he got it, I feel this is the start of a revival .

OLD - HEAD says...

This win has prompted some very strange comments, I suppose its all a matter of opinion. I was delighted that we won our second match in four days. When the first half ended, I was relieved that it was still 0-0. But we played better after the interval and deserved our win. We still have a lot to do before we are safe from relegation, but those two results this week have been a great relief for all York City supporters. Whitehouse and Brobbel have gone back to their clubs, Adam Reed has joined until the end of the season, City are trying to sign Connell, Penn and Lowe, so there is plenty going on. But reaching the play-offs? - "Please I am too old for fairy tales".

A performance today full of grit and determination with signs of the team starting to show its possible potential. Yes under the cosh at times in first half but managed it well and stuck to task well. Coulson was the wizard of most attacks with his quick vision and intelligent play,and helped Davies by covering back unlike Chambers who just hides away and shows no enthusiasm whats gone wrong with him? The possible signing of Penn with his experience in midfield can not only vastly improve that area and help Platt,Reed etc with their game,i have seen Penn a number of times and fits the type of player we need, he could be a big part of the jigsaw NW is trying to build but has one poster mentioned with his experience there will be no shortage of admirers,hopefully Lowe will be a factor in prising him away in our favour.

A very heartening performance I would say we matched them physically and then out gunned them in the second half. It was great to see 2 forwards in Bowman and Fletcher combining so well to create havoc as they did with the help of wide players Coulson and Carson and get on the score sheet. There were good performances all over the pitch as well. Yes very encouraging better times on the way I reckon. A great 3 points!-Well done City!

Yes indeed, I have made a couple of forecasts on here one that my belief that we will finish in the play offs based on Analysed Statistical Probability based on
the Law of Averages , Secondly I forecast that the next three results would be
3-1 2-0 4-2. CHEEZY-PUFFS first one up picked up £270 . so you see my Crystal Ball works. And put £100 on at 33/1 to finish in the play offs .
"Analysed Statistical Probability based on the Law of Averages"

Is the law of averages not just an alternative way of defining probability?
YOU SPOTTED IT ...Go to the top of the class. I think this one has run its course, FOOTBALL lets talk about that, when you look at the BBC Stats it didn't tell the whole story, Yes we struggled in the first half to get hold of a couple their attackers but we have got to give them the team fair dues for seeing the half out , then it was a fine performance , one that we can take a lot of pluses , NW have said this was he wanted and he got it, I feel this is the start of a revival .
Bill, your recent football predictions have been uncannily accurate. But I'm going to come down on the side of the other guy with regards to the 'law of averages'. Its just another way of putting the gamblers fallacy, or the belief that a 'run' of bad results will always naturally even out with a run of 'good' results (which isn't true...). At least now we seem to be making our own 'luck' so to speak, through hard work and grit.

That was much more like it after some nearly there performances, there are still attitudes to change though given the performances against some poor sides. Dag & Red are set up like us to be a good footballing side with pacey wingers & full backs & they were the better side in the first half & we were kept in the game to some extent by Coulson working extremely hard to double up on their winger with Davies.
2nd half a different story once we had the goal we opened them up quite a few times & could have had a few more, both Fletcher & Bowman impressed as did Carson & as a whole competed well across the field.
I am hoping Banj TY & Lowe can be kept fit as they were vital in containing D&R in the first half, great entertainment & we can do well against teams that play the ball.
Well done City keep it up!!!

As I previously pointed out, your comments are ALL ABOUT YOU and rarely have anything to do with York City.

What has you winning money got to do with York City's performance against The Daggers?

Few are interested in what you have to say about yourself. The majority want York ity to do well this season. This is all that matters.

Great result, value for money and hopefully the corner has been turned. Dagenham were a good side and they should have scored at least 3. Fortunately, we took our chances and that's how you win a game of football - score more than your opponents. Very impressed with the Fletcher Bowman and McGurk Lowe combos and Banjo and Coulson are showing great form. As with Carson and Montrose, Adam Reed will make a big impact in midfield. Here's to more wins and a positive second half of the season.

I would agree with all of the above, I would also include Coulson who put in a tremendous shift. Slightly worried that half the defence are injury prone though. I still think central midfield is not creative enough as I'm no fan of Montrose. Reed back is a plus if we get the Reed of last season but we do need another player in so hopefully terms can be agreed for Penn.
Two wins that should take a lot of pressure off Worthington and let's hope we can now push on because there is little between most teams.

This win has prompted some very strange comments, I suppose its all a matter of opinion. I was delighted that we won our second match in four days. When the first half ended, I was relieved that it was still 0-0. But we played better after the interval and deserved our win. We still have a lot to do before we are safe from relegation, but those two results this week have been a great relief for all York City supporters. Whitehouse and Brobbel have gone back to their clubs, Adam Reed has joined until the end of the season, City are trying to sign Connell, Penn and Lowe, so there is plenty going on. But reaching the play-offs? - "Please I am too old for fairy tales".
Agree with OH. We were second best throughout in the first half but as with the Morecambe game we hung in there and eventually found a way into the match. Credit must go to Lowe and TY if guess as I am sure we would have conceded with Smith at the back.
Personally I had never heard of Penn before yesterday so I am constantly amused how people get so excited about these things - 'just the player' we need etc. I will wait for half a dozen games before casting judgement. But what is apparent is that central midfield is way below par regardless of which duo from Montrose, Whitehouse, Platt or Clay has played. One thing that Reed will offer is a willingness to run beyond the strikers and add his support, this has been fundamentally lacking season to date. Whether he is the saviour that some seem to believe only time will tell but if so then I suspect Burton would be picking him not offloading him?
Still 28 points from 25 reads much better than 22 from 23 so here's hoping with three very winnable games next up. Also despite my gloom after Accy and Bury I reckon I would have taken 7 points from 12 over the festive period. Funny old game.
Now who will be offloading next week? Clay, Fyfield , Smith and Chambers must surely head the list? Chambers frustrates me more than any of the rest of the squad, the talent is there so why is it so rarely shown?
Onwards and upwards to Sixfields.

To be fair, the players and management owed the fans these 6 points, especially after the Bury game. The two biggest games of the season now against Bristol Rovers and Northampton, so these 6 points could prove to be crucial. Anyway, well done Mr Worthington, but make no mistake about it - those 6 points have saved your job.

Total garbage. The management and players have worked their socks off and we haven't had the rub of the green in many games. I can only think of first half v Bury and the Bristol cup game where the players didn't look committed. This is football, nothing is instant. Success takes time and long term planning. This is a far better side than last year and I for one see a bright future

Agree with comments about Bury and Bristol game and true rub of green not gone our way prior to Morecambe game. Someone did post 2 wins lets not get too excited and that's true, but the rebuilding structure from non league to league are showing promising signs lets keep our fingers crossed and keep getting behind the team and help them with our super support.

Sorry, I don't agree. You make your own luck in football. I agree, there have been many games which we have not had the rub of the green, but it has happened too many times for it to be just down to bad luck. How many times have we thrown away the lead this season? I can think of at least 5. Yes, the players have worked their socks off, but points keep you in the league.

Strange old game is footy at times - after watching the Accrington and Bury games I couldn't see these 2 wins coming. Fletcher was the only one who showed promise in the 2 games xmas games and no surprise to see him scoring, I think we have a good striker on our hands there.. Sorry to see Brobbel go back to Boro, he looked quality and I dont think he was given a fair shout. I have lots of doubts about NW based on the style of football I see us play and some of his loan signings, who have been pants,, but fair do's to the guy, he has signed 2 midfielders that look like they will improve us, particularly Reed as we know what he can do. Would still like to see us play more football on the deck, in line with the Mills era, and we are sadly lackly in creativity but its a results business and 7 points out of 12 in the last 4 games is ok.

Really pleased with the second half performance. The lads pressed them high up the pitch and the Daggers looked very ordinary.
Pity the goals were not on the football league show as I would like to have seen them again. I think all were deflected in some way.
Well done lads!

A poor performance for City in the first half, they could well have gone in at halftime 2-0 down. However, the second half performance showed much more determination and the team started to show the talents they have as individuals, but the important thing was they all worked harder into helping each other and blended together as a team. Something that has been lacking for too long this season. Well done to all the team members you all played your part.
