York City held to 1-1 draw at Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League Two

York Press: York City held to 1-1 draw at Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League Two York City held to 1-1 draw at Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League Two

YORK City played out a fifth successive draw as they were held 1-1 at Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League Two.

The Crown Ground share-all was the Minstermen's eighth draw in ten winless matches in the league, leaving Nigel Worthington's side in 20th place in the table.

The visitors were the better side in the first half and forged ahead thanks to Wes Fletcher's penalty, the striker scoring from the spot after being felled in the box on 35 minutes.

However, City's Achilles heel this season has been their inability to hang on to a lead for any length of time and they allowed Accrington back into the game before half-time.

George Bowerman took advantage of some poor City defending to scramble in a goal and send Stanley in on level terms.

The second half was a more low-key affair as the Minstermen were unable to grab a winner for their 717 travelling fans in a crowd of 2,009.

Worthington's men now travel to fellow strugglers Bury on Sunday, before hosting Morecambe on New Year's Day.

This is getting ridiculous, Pour some cash in for a striker McGill or we are going down, Dire.

Not good enough. And now we know that the draw against Oxford was not good enough either. It reflects very poorly on the manager when we're utterly incapable of holding onto a lead for more than a few minutes. It's Christmas, which is when most people seem to agree you can get the measure of a new manager and his team, and we're one point off the drop and third from the foot of the football league - even Mills wasn't doing this poorly by Christmas. I'm not convinced NW will keep us up, and if anyone has evidence to counter that belief I'd love to hear it.

To be fair our defence is not really the problem, looking at the goal difference. A bit more fire power would be nice though. Transfer window looms. Don't panic boys. We'll be fine.

We need a creative midfielder to play with montrose, personally i'd give puri a go there. The lads hard working, likes a tackle and got a shot on him so why not. I think there's a good player there just waiting to get out

I'm certainly not going to 'have a go' at a fellow fan for being optimistic, but what makes you think we'll be fine? We're in a far worse position than last year and seemingly struggling with the same problems. I'm always for York City 100%, but I'm not convinced that NW is good for the club.

If we haven't got the money for good players it doesn't matter who the manager is to a large extent. A new manager is only going to face the same problem of no or little money available.

This will only be a decent point if we follow it up with a win at Bury. I've said for a while now that we need to see where we are end of Jan after the transfer window closes. If we are still in or around the bottom 2 and haven't recruited sufficient quality in centre midfield especially then a decision needs to be made as to whether we need to make a change.

Its obviously frustrating at the moment but I still believe we will be ok. There are still a lot of teams in the mix at the bottom who will all be wanting to do business in Jan to try to pull clear.

I also think some chairman will have the trigger on the button ready to press as we have seen already recently with Northampton. Mansfield must be getting really nervous as they in freefall.

Its also a concern that the goals have dried up so I hope Bowman gets a start at Bury.

Guys guys hold on to your nerve the next win will happen soon hopefully. Yes we need a new striker to replace Cresswell and a creative midfielder but that can only happen once the window opens. For now keep the faith and trust the manager to shuffle the pack accordingly. We aren't losing and all in all a decent point away from home. Keep the faith chaps. At least were in better form than falling like a stone Mansfield. Onwards to Bury Sunday.

Yet another draw, normally we would be more than satisfied with a point, but it is getting quite worrying now. We are just a defeat away from going bottom of the league, yet Nigel Worthington seems to feel that we are on the right track. The fans have been very considerate towards Nigel and apart from the odd grumble everyone is just being patient and waiting for our luck to change. But I would be very surprised if Jason McGill is not having sleepless nights, wondering what to do next.

I didnt see the game, i havent read a report yet, but having seen Accringtons recent record, I,d say we've done ok. I would definately give Puri a try. Platt is agressive but doesn't make a telling pass, and Clay , I haven't seen him do anything meaningful since his arrival. We definately need a win on Saturday and next New Years day. We actually climbed a place today !!!

Wasn't there today, but nothing wrong with performance against Oxford , except a goal or two. Don't panic. The good thing is we don't ever look like being stuffed, so a couple of wins puts us almost mid table.

Why so many negative marks on people criticising the team? Pull your head out of your inflated Christmas backsides and see that this team is progressively getting worse, held roughly together by a group of loanees. Chequebook out in January McGills or get the manager out and bring someone in better who is proven with a small budget AT THIS LEVEL.

None of our players have scored from open play in over a month and we haven't won in almost 2. The draws, loanees and half decent performances like Oxford on Saturday seem to be sugarcoat it slightly with a lot of supporters but come on, if we don't score and start winning we will go down.

Actually we weren`t the better side in the first half until we`d scored then put pressure on and I thought we could hold out until half time ! Second half we were poor; second to the ball, gave Accy too much space and time on the ball. What has happened to Jarvis who was on fire for the first few games of the season ? I was hopeful w could get three points today as I`ve seen far better teams than Accrington. 3 points t Bury on Sunday is a must !

Phil, Leeds says...

Certainly we need something more creative in midfield but also we will create with players like Carson and Coulson in the side. But the strikers need to start making things happen, make space and get on the end of things. The ball won't drop at their feet, they've got to go looking for it in places it might hurt. Agree with others that it might be worth giving Puri a game in midfield. Nothing much wrong with the defence but O'Neill going after the next 3 games will be a loss.

Clearly we need two people in the middle of midfield one that can tackle and one that can be creative, be asking too much that we could find a player that can do both ! Defence looks more solid as long as we keep TY fit and sign Lowe, and upfront we have much more options than last season, and they have all proved they know where the net is, so there are some positives from where we were December 2012. However we have lacked in midfield all year including today. Platt not good enough and today rightly did not make the bench, Montrose can not tackle and Whitehouse still needs more time so must be the priority in January.

All of a sudden Puri is being banded around as our saviour. Is this the same Sander Puri that has looked to be off the pace in his few brief appearances?. I can not critisize the teams selected by Nigel Worthington, as he seems to be picking his best available players, especally with the loanee restrictions. People seem to think that when January comes, everythng will be OK. But with our financial clout I am not 100% confident that Nigel will be able to bring in better players. The situation would of course change if we could string two or three wins together, but right now it is very difficult to see that happening.

Totally agree - people are getting carried away with his international status - sad state of affairs if he is seen as our saviour.On the few occasions he has appeared he has looked totally uninterested and off the pace.Explains why his last club in Scotland (poorer standard than League 2?) got shut quickly.I have always thought Worthington was the wrong choice and sadly I am being proved correct - although I sincerely hope he turns it around.. All these loanees and the instability they bring has always worried me.

Both of you are not the happiest bunnies. we would all be happier if we had car instead of a pair of socks for Christmas.The point I was making re Puri its not that its All of a sudden as you put it he's about to be our saviour, there is no question of his ability he is a talent . if you have read my post's over the last 6 months I have said just that, this guy for various reasons hasn't had a run on in the side. and now sitting on the bench and fit watching us not scoring goals is not exactly the boost a player needs and then gets sent on for a few minutes when the damage is done. that applies to any player not only him i'm not carrying his flag the same thing applies to any player , I am just making the point that he's got it and I believe he should be out there given the freedom of the park adding a new dimension to our play. Ihaven't just come out of the woodwork ,

The Puri one is interesting. He hasn't really shown an awful lot in the few games he has had. Saying that neither has Platt or Clay who we need to get off the books IMO. Adam Reed would improve the midfield and we do need to sort out the squad in the window. I'd say it will go one of two ways, NW will ship out four or five, sign Lowe and bring in 3 or 4 permanent players in the window or he will be out of a job in February. For now we should just trust him to do his job and get behind the players selected and hope the wins come starting Sunday at Bury.

I agree.
Am not impressed with everything that NW has done so far but I do think we are heading in the right direction - just a bit slower than I and a lot of other fans would like. At this time we need stability and definitely not a change of manager.

Have to agree with the above. Its boring to watch the long ball, when we play passing football we do look like we could actually create something. We do need to stop sacking managers though as we must have spent more money on paying them off than actually spending on a team. Time now for some serious investment into the club and if the McGills cannot stomach having new blood on the board then get the purse open and get spending and get rid of the loan players.

TUG JOB . I wonder, Just wonder, If the boat was going down how many of those on here who want investments would put their hands in their pockets to plug the hole, Talk is cheap, I have been closer than most on here running a club,(All be it in the 50s) and put my hand in my pocket with others on the the board to pay wages. You do it for the same reason the McGill family has done it for this club its the passion you have . I have said it before on here you have to balance the books. and I back the whole set up of YORK CITY .

i'm sorry bill did i read that right or have you forgotten all ready, i think you will find that "when the boat was going down" a few years ago there was plenty of us who dug deep, some i know who gave up holidays etc to help keep the club alive so please don't say that the city faithful will shy away from anything financial if they can possibly help in any way.

I Applaud you and the others that did so THEN.,As I understand it You and Them had little option, to save the club it had to be done. Since then there has been an element of calm and because the McGill family have injected their money some seem to think they have bottomless pockets, I didn't live in York when the club went bottoms up and to you and other supporters what you did speaks volumes for your commitment to City, But i'm sure you and I know Fairy Godmothers don't come along too often.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, ALL IS WELL.
