A LATE goal from striker Jason Walker earned York City a 1-1 draw at npower League Two promotion-chasers Cheltenham Town.

The Minstermen held their own for 66 minutes at Whaddon Road, but striker Shaun Harrad then hit the opening goal that appeared set to lift the home side into the automatic promotion places.

In a further blow to City, defender David McGurk was stretchered off after going down injured in the build up to Harrad's goal.

Shortly after the goal, City manager Gary Mills made a double change, with Jon Challinor and up-for-sale striker Jamie Reed thrown into the action.

And, with six minutes remaining, Walker struck his eighth goal of the season from close range to salvage a point for the visitors.

The draw - York's 11th of the campaign - keeps the Minstermen in 15th place in the League Two table.
