Match report: York City 2, Wycombe 0 - Sky Bet League Two

York Press: York City striker Ryan Bowman celebrates his penalty in the 2-0 win over Wycombe York City striker Ryan Bowman celebrates his penalty in the 2-0 win over Wycombe

WYCOMBE Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth might have fronted rock bands in the past but it was Nigel Worthington that was singing his side’s praises as York City racked up a fourth successive win.

The Minstermen hit all the right notes against Ainsworth’s side during a first half that was rightly identified as the finest 45 minutes of his stewardship by Worthington.

At one point during that opening period, the visiting boss even tested his vocal chords to the full when he screamed “they are killing you” at beleaguered centre-backs Leon Johnson and Anthony Stewart.

A two-goal advantage, courtesy of Ryan Bowman’s second penalty in as many games and Josh Carson’s fifth goal of the season, was scant reward for the hosts’ dominance with an overwhelmed Wycombe chasing shadows for long periods.

Nevertheless, that lead was always likely to be sufficient for a side that have now conceded only one goal during almost 11 hours.

On-loan keeper Nick Pope’s shot-stopping skills were again only fleetingly tested against the Chairboys but his judgement coming off his line to claim a succession of crosses was immaculate for a 21-year-old who still has less than 20 appearances at Football League level to his name.

Teenage left-back Ben Davies, meanwhile, has played all but one of the Minstermen’s league contests this season and is impressing more and more by the game, making a vital intervention that proved the difference between his side going into the break 2-0 up rather than back on level terms, which would have been a travesty.

Davies somehow cleared his own crossbar as Sam Togwell prepared to tap in Nick Arnold’s left-wing cross to the far post.

From the subsequent corner, intercepted by John McCombe at the near post, City launched a typical counter-attack that would result in an overdue second goal during first-half stoppage time.

After Michael Coulson won a header in City’s half, Will Hayhurst picked out a characteristic charge down the right flank by Carson with a precise through ball.

The Northern Ireland international then switched the ball on to his left foot and tried his luck with a 25-yard drive that deceived Wanderers keeper Matt Ingram, diving down to his left, when it bounced quickly off the Bootham Crescent turf.

Davies’ intervention and Carson’s goal were only so vital, however, because the hosts had failed to apply finishing touches to a succession of excellent first-half crosses that flashed across the visitors’ goal and referee Steven Rushton had mysteriously disallowed an 11th-minute Keith Lowe header.

Dangerous deliveries from Lanre Oyebanjo, Coulson and Carson from the right flank were begging to be converted and, despite overwhelming their opponents with wave after wave of high-tempo attacks full of intelligent movement, the Minstermen did not capitalise fully on their superiority.

Setting the tone from the first whistle, Coulson had a goalbound attempt kicked away by harassed centre-back Stewart with just 30 seconds on the clock.

A Coulson back heel then found Carson in the 18-yard box and his quick feet drew an inadvisable lunge from striker Dean Morgan, giving Bowman the chance to convert a second penalty in as many games using exactly the same method – confidently sidefooting into the goalkeeper’s bottom lefthand corner.

Four minutes later, the goal celebration music was blaring out again when Lowe won the cleanest of headers from a Hayhurst corner but it proved premature with Rushton detecting an infringement by Coulson on Ingram and, within seconds, Morgan was shooting wide at the other end as a backslapping City struggled to regroup from the quickly taken free-kick.

The Minstermen were soon back on top, however, with Hayhurst curling another flag kick against the crossbar, only for McCombe to also be penalised as his follow-up header was cleared off the line.

Next came the move of the match, when a Lowe drag back and pass provided space for Adam Reed who, in turn, sent Coulson rampaging down the right. His cross somehow eluded Bowman at the far post.

Russell Penn went close on 27 minutes with an edge-of-the-box attempt that drifted narrowly wide and he also headed against the roof of the David Longhurst Stand after rising to meet Hayhurst’s corner.

After Arnold had hoofed over a rare chance at the other end, there followed the chain of events that saw Carson catch out Ingram.

City were never as commanding after the interval and were limited to a hat-trick of opportunities for the lively Hayhurst. On 53 minutes, he collected a clever reverse pass by Coulson but his low shot lacked the power to trouble Ingram.

Just past the hour, the winger seized on a Sam Wood mistake, following Lowe’s free-kick through the right channel, but a curling effort was kept out by Ingram.

A final shot was then booted away to safety by covering defender Stewart after substitute Wes Fletcher nutmegged Johnson during a rapid burst down the left.

At the other end, substitute Steven Craig lifted the visitors a little, using his first touch to force Pope into a good save low to his right.

After Arnold had curled a freekick into Pope’s midriff, Craig might have done better when, following a rare mix-up between Lowe and McCombe, he was presented with a clear run on the home goal.

But the forward could only shoot against Pope’s left-hand upright and prodded the rebound wide.

Pope made a routine save from Arnold before the Buckinghamshire visitors’ miserable afternoon was compounded when on-loan Chesterfield midfielder Togwell was sent off on his debut in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

City sub Lewis Montrose and Togwell were both fully committed to winning a 50-50 ball but, when the former got there a fraction earlier and the latter caught him, Rushton rather needlessly showed the Wycombe newcomer a second yellow card.

Fantastic, organised performance which we should probably have won by more. Only goal difference is keeping us out of the play-off places, and with the form we're in you wouldn't bet against us making it.

Really great performance throughout the game! Organised in all areas. Keep the momentum going now for the last 9 games! Lowe and McCombe were solid at the back (apart from the mix up where Wycombe hit the post, they don't make many mistakes so we can forgive that). Felt slightly sorry for their red card, didn't see what the lad did wrong. 50/50 challenge and got a booking for it. Take the 3 points and upwards we go!

Another great result and our first half performance was excellent and is exactly what we need to see at home. The confidence is clearly starting to show through and we could have been out of sight by half time. Only slight disappointment was that we took our foot of the pedal again second half as per Exeter game.

l was critical of Reed and Carson after the Exeter game but have to say they were excellent today as were the whole team particularly first half. We now look a really solid outfit throughout the team and again defensively were superb. Pope, Lowe and McCombe have taken us to a new level. What a signing it would be if we could get Pope again next season but I fear we will struggle to get him back even on loan as I'm sure bigger clubs will have taken notice of his ability.

The odds are certainly shortening. 14/1 for top seven and 22/1 promotion before the midweek game.

Now about 5/1 and 9/1 respectively. 5/1 is pretty good if you're that certain, but it's tight and more twists are still to come.

Excellent first half attacking from the word go and had all things gone our way we could have been4 or 5 up at half time. Second half not as exciting but defence only had 1 minor scare resulting in ball hitting our post. Clean sheet again(6 out of last 7) so very well done. Ben Davies had another sound game and he has quietly improved all season and there was little danger from their right hand side today. Also great commendation to our groundsmen because when you see other league grounds on the Football League Show ours looks
Superb while some are mud baths. Can we really dare to secure a play off place? Sure we can. Come on City!

Coulson was penalised for backing into the goalkeeper, he was also penalised for the same offence when Hayhirsts corner hit the bar. Both very dubious decisions!

Sadly, you are talking through your ar$E positive. Why not live up to your handle, and don't critisise your fellow fans. It was rocking in pop stand mate. On a positive note though, another solid performance from the lads. Dodgy ref IMO. What was all that about when Lowe netted. Ref talking to their keeper, and no City players knew it was disallowed. Eight city players celebrating in corner at shippo end, and Wycombe are flying down the pitch with the ball and could easily have scored. Total chaos. Enjoyed the game though. Well played all.

First half performance as good as any at home this season. Some excellent passing football, could easily have been out of sight at HT. How important the second goal proved to be as against the wind second half it was a totally different story and so it made a huge difference to have a second goal cushion. Need to keep the ball on the deck against the wind and shouldn't need to be told but hey a 2014 record of W9,D3,L2 for 30 pts from 42 is an excellent achievement so plaudits all around.
Found myself enquiring re Southend, Plymouth and Oxford at HT rather than Torquay and Northampton, very odd!
With Southend and Oxford in free fall then what's our chances of still being a Division apart from our foes from Luton next season?
Lucky away maroon jumper in the wash for a trip to Fratton Park next Saturday. Couldn't make it 6 from 6 could it?

I can say with 100% confidence that we will not see the words 'Worthington Out' after this win. Also, what's happened to the words 'hoofball and clueless'? I for one am glad that the board didn't panic on the 29th of December, and I stand by my opinion that Worthington is the best manager that we've had since Dennis Smith.

OLD - HEAD says...

A superb first half performance, as good as anything we have seen this season. We should have been out of sight by half-time. In the second half we just wanted to hold on to what we had, so it was a bit of an anti-climax. I disagree with"positive football" for I thought that all the ground (away fans excepted) got behind York City today. The big difference is that the players are at last starting to play with confidence. Russell Penn is now looking like an accomplished leader in mid-field. Still a long way to go but if the players battle like his every game - "Then anything is possible".

Another observation from today was how Penn continues to be our main driving force in midfield and he set the tempo for our performance in the first half today IMO. A number of people were quick to criticise him after just a few games for us but he's played massive part in our form since Jan.

Report should really mention Ben Davies' brilliant clearance at 1-0 just prior to us going 2-0. Him and Pope really developing into solid reliable players. No matter what happens this season, would be great to sign them permanently in the summer. Also Lowe's disallowed goal was ridiculous. Their players seem to be arguing amongst themselves as to how he was allowed a clear header, Terrible refereeing decision - thankfully didn't cost us.

Play offs? Don't think we need to dare to dream now, We are right in there. Solid at the back and looked threatening every time we went forward today (well particularly in the first half). Only very very slight criticism, perhaps a bit more anticipation from our strikers to get into the box earlier to make the most of our wide players dangerous runs. Roll on Pompey next week!!

You never had the bottle to back NW, You never threw your hat in the ring when he was made manager last year , The best you could do was to sit on the fence, You was one who said he was unwanted and couldn't get a job anywhere else, so now its my turn to say to You,I Told You So. Don't like it
Not my problem.
He (or she, whatever it is) didn't sit on the fence Bill, it slated Nigel from the very off (until recently). It was also very angry that Mills was sacked, even though Mills was fast-tracking the club to the Conference North. Anyhow, City's doing well and that's all that matters.

But it was a team performance all round today! Pope was gobbling up everything in the air and their frustration mounted resulting in the red card. And lets be rite about it, he got away with murder for 90 mins!

Were look more than good value for the play offs!

Probably the best first half this season, if only we went at teams right from the start in every home game. My god has a manager ever had as good a transfer window as the last one, Pope,Penn,McCombe,Lo
we all outstanding again with Coulson man of the match for me although I'm slightly biased as I've always liked him. Bowman still struggled to hold the ball up and Fletcher back from the start will be a bonus, think Bowman maybe needs a wee rest without that meaning he has been awful, he has not by any means.
Big thing is you can now visibly see the confidence in the team and you just know they think the play offs are on, and they are, we have every chance.

Disagree. Our form has been improved by; 1. Keith Lowe 2. Banjo being played in his true position of right back 3. Michael Coulson finding form 4. Josh Carson 5. John McCombe 6. Nick Pope. RU55 PENN certainly divides opinion (as did Chambers), but the bottom line is that the keeper is better, the defence is more solid and the afore mentioned midfielders have goals in them (not to mention the talents of Fletcher, Jarvis & Bowman. In my opinion, Scott Kerr would do a better job.
I couldn't disagree with you more. Penn is far and away a more effective player, and better leader, for the team than Scott Kerr was. I liked Kerr but felt that he played far too deep and couldn't see the point of him continually going back and taking the ball off the centre backs. Will always be grateful to Scott Kerr for the part he played in our double season but Penn is much better.

We have reached the target he said he wanted, we really could upset the apple cart for the play offs now.

On 5th feb, I took 33/1 on us to get the play offs, to much ridicule from my flatmates- lets just say they're laughing no more!!

Great performance today. Penn was excellent and comparisons with Kerr are off the mark. Scott was great in the Conference but we're now a side challenging for a place in League One.
Coulson was magnificent today. And second half the defence stood up well against the wind and with Wycombe at last putting some passes together - but the result was never in danger. Ref was rubbish.
In the past yes - I used the phrase hoofball - because when we played that way we were painful and ineffective. Now the side are playing to their strengths and are a different proposition altogether. Well done to NW and all the staff, and all the players.

I made the same noises about Coulson and Puri, two of the best little footballers in League 2, sitting on the bench, just bad Management.
Two of the problems have been addressed, and WE are doing very well, better late than never. Why is Puri not playing? ask the Manager, he may have some valid reasons, but they are not clear to me.

Re the debate of who had or had not been calling for the manager's head. I hadn't gone that far but I did suggest that he was having his third roll of the dice this season with the Jan transfer window. Clearly this time he threw double six and isn't life much better for it? I also said that he seems to me to lack a connection with the majority of City supporters and I still fear that to be the case.
But isn't the truth that many on here were citing the absolute need for a commanding centre back as the number one priority? I am sure that either of TY or DP could have been paired with one of Lowe or McCombe and we would have seen an improvement. I am equally sure that it was too early to judge Tom Allen and that Chris Smith was an absolute liability.
To get two commanding centre backs in has been an absolute bonus, to have them for the next two seasons is a double bonus.
Equally many on here cited Ingham's shot stopping as first class but his reluctance to leave his line and his kicking as weaknesses. Pope has plugged those weaknesses.
Then there was a call for more quality in midfield. Again Penn and Reed have improved us in that area of the pitch, though whether they offer enough for us to get to the next level is questionable.
So maybe management isn't as hard as we think.
One thing that we need to be grateful for as BH12Man pointed out to me yesterday we are fortunate to have a Board that are true City fans and have given their backing to managers during their tenure. Can you imagine being an Addicks fan today with the sacking of a club legend and appointment of yet another foreign nobody ....don't you just despair at the state of not just the Premier League but increasingly several clubs in the Championship these days?

Not my problem.
I don't back managers on losing runs - I back managers on winning runs. Get it? We were very poor up to Jan 29th (as another poster keeps telling you, and you keep ignoring). We're very good now. Still following me? I had a huge amount of respect for Gary Mills for what he achieved, but did I disagree with him being sacked? Of course not! The fact is, we (or at least) most of us support the club first and foremost, and support the manager only when he's doing well for the club. A manager can earn a bit of loyalty, but at the end of the day if they don't succeed, they don't get supported. That's not an opinion, that's a proven fact at every club in every league, throughout history. NW is doing well, so I congratulate him for it. Please tell me if there's any of that you don't understand.

Thought that after the Hartlepool and Chesterfield games at the end of January that we would be embroiled in another survival dogfight, but February and so far into March, we have turned corners and are looking a settled, confident side with outstanding organisation at the Back and overall a squad who are playing for each other and hitting form bang at the right time of the season. We are now a good bet to qualify for the play-offs in May. Yesterday was a good example of our developing form - strong, organised and hard to beat at the Back, with Penn and Reed effective in the midfield and now more and more, we have an inventive, quicker moving front line that looks threatening. There will still be some twists and turns before the end of the season but we are surely in the right shape to make that push for the 6th and 7th play-off positions! COYR.

Not my problem.
I don't back managers on losing runs - I back managers on winning runs. Get it? We were very poor up to Jan 29th (as another poster keeps telling you, and you keep ignoring). We're very good now. Still following me? I had a huge amount of respect for Gary Mills for what he achieved, but did I disagree with him being sacked? Of course not! The fact is, we (or at least) most of us support the club first and foremost, and support the manager only when he's doing well for the club.

Please tell me if there's any of that you don't understand.
The reason I backed Worthington when we were 3rd bottom and not doing well, was because I could see what he was trying to build and I had faith in him getting it right. He needed time owing to the mess that Mills left us in, and it now looks like City are on the up. Unfortunately, I do not subscribe to your 'clap when we're winning, but cry like a baby when we're not' mentality, as it's essential to see the bigger picture. We all have an opinion, and thankfully the board ignore those coming from people like yourself.

But your double standards make no sense, because when Mills was manager and he was on a terrible run, you were constantly spitting the dummy out, and undermining him and the players. So which is it? Do you support the manager no matter what or do you form opinions based on results? I'm not ashamed to say that I, like most City fans, put the club before loyalty to any one person. As I keep saying (and again, you keep ignoring), I was totally with the board when they fired Mills, because he wasn't doing well for the club. Up to the start of 2014, NW wasn't either, we were rock bottom of the table and playing awful football. He earned my support through good signings and good results since then. No doubt he earned the boards support too. If I was NW I'd place far more value in earned respect than blind, stupid sycophancy from the likes of you.

You never had the bottle to back NW, You never threw your hat in the ring when he was made manager last year , The best you could do was to sit on the fence, You was one who said he was unwanted and couldn't get a job anywhere else, so now its my turn to say to You,I Told You So. Don't like it
Not my problem.
I don't back managers on losing runs - I back managers on winning runs. Get it? We were very poor up to Jan 29th (as another poster keeps telling you, and you keep ignoring). We're very good now. Still following me? I had a huge amount of respect for Gary Mills for what he achieved, but did I disagree with him being sacked? Of course not! The fact is, we (or at least) most of us support the club first and foremost, and support the manager only when he's doing well for the club. A manager can earn a bit of loyalty, but at the end of the day if they don't succeed, they don't get supported. That's not an opinion, that's a proven fact at every club in every league, throughout history. NW is doing well, so I congratulate him for it. Please tell me if there's any of that you don't understand.
The reason I backed Worthington when we were 3rd bottom and not doing well, was because I could see what he was trying to build and I had faith in him getting it right. He needed time owing to the mess that Mills left us in, and it now looks like City are on the up. Unfortunately, I do not subscribe to your 'clap when we're winning, but cry like a baby when we're not' mentality, as it's essential to see the bigger picture. We all have an opinion, and thankfully the board ignore those coming from people like yourself.
But your double standards make no sense, because when Mills was manager and he was on a terrible run, you were constantly spitting the dummy out, and undermining him and the players. So which is it? Do you support the manager no matter what or do you form opinions based on results? I'm not ashamed to say that I, like most City fans, put the club before loyalty to any one person. As I keep saying (and again, you keep ignoring), I was totally with the board when they fired Mills, because he wasn't doing well for the club. Up to the start of 2014, NW wasn't either, we were rock bottom of the table and playing awful football. He earned my support through good signings and good results since then. No doubt he earned the boards support too. If I was NW I'd place far more value in earned respect than blind, stupid sycophancy from the likes of you.
Your just a stirrer , who is devoid of football knowledge, I have as other have given you the benefit of the doubt, but your stupidity means you keep digging your hole deeper, you don't know which side of the fence your on, go to your beloved Mills at Gateshead and give us all break,
Think you three should have a meet up in the Pitchside i would pay to see you all swinging your hanbags at each other lol

Agreed TJ. Heading back over the pond after seeing 12 points from 12 which I never thought would be on after seeing several games back in late Summer. I reckon that we could, on the balance of what I've seen, hit around 66/67 points which will be a very good second half of the season. I'll put an early player of the season nomination in.

Good morning, North Yorkshire, I see the usual suspects are up to their usual tricks! Well done, City, on another terrific result, let's hope we can keep the good results coming. It's a shame most of the regular posters can't just concentrate on the football. COYR
Agreed TJ. Heading back over the pond after seeing 12 points from 12 which I never thought would be on after seeing several games back in late Summer. I reckon that we could, on the balance of what I've seen, hit around 66/67 points which will be a very good second half of the season. I'll put an early player of the season nomination in. Keith Lowe.....
You're luckier than I am, my month back home included the Accy and Bury fixtures...I sometimes think I'm jinxed!
Please stay wherever you are

YE OAH. As I was hailed as NWs plant, and operating out of Norwich, Didn't know what I was talking about ,this was back in March last year, But I have the last laugh, I said then,,He would keep us up. because he was a top manager, I said at the start of this season we would finish in the top six, Not bad for a guy that doesn't know what he's talking about,,I have had the faith but plenty on here didn't, they have now , so they should. What has happened this year is not down to luck it is been brought about by all the Staff and the board , OH and by the loyal supporters. If what I predicted and we reach the play offs we will be the FORM team . GOOD AIN'T IT.
Give it a rest with the 'I told you so' stuff, it's hugely childish. Just try to be happy that we're doing well without lashing out at others. We're all City fans.
You never had the bottle to back NW, You never threw your hat in the ring when he was made manager last year , The best you could do was to sit on the fence, You was one who said he was unwanted and couldn't get a job anywhere else, so now its my turn to say to You,I Told You So. Don't like it
Not my problem.
He (or she, whatever it is) didn't sit on the fence Bill, it slated Nigel from the very off (until recently). It was also very angry that Mills was sacked, even though Mills was fast-tracking the club to the Conference North. Anyhow, City's doing well and that's all that matters.
Grow up!!!!!
