York City got the new year off to a flier with a 3-0 beating of Burton Albion.

The Minstermen were set on their winning way with a 13th minute penalty from Jason Walker – his seventh goal of the season.

Midfielder Paddy McLaughlin struck nine minutes before half-time, and the victory was sealed nine minutes from full-time when Matty Blair struck City’s third goal against the Brewers.
