Match report: York City 1, Morecambe 0 - Sky Bet League Two

York Press: Marksman Ryan Jarvis pressurises the Morecambe defence Marksman Ryan Jarvis pressurises the Morecambe defence

YORK City’s long run without a victory has been causing a few headaches at Bootham Crescent in recent times but, on a day normally renowned for hangovers, Ryan Jarvis provided the perfect remedy.

Jarvis’ 30th-minute strike – his ninth goal of the season and first in 11 League games – earned City a welcome 1-0 win over New Year’s Day visitors Morecambe.

The Minstermen’s first triumph in 12 matches owed as much, however, to an inspired return for Michael Ingham in goal.

Ingham has missed the last eight games due to a hip flexor problem that was preventing him from kicking balls.

He was reliable with his feet during yesterday’s comeback outing but brilliant with his hands to rack up a 110th clean sheet for the club on one of his busiest afternoons at Bootham Crescent.

Prior to Jarvis’ goal – the hosts’ only on-target attempt of the opening 45 minutes – Ingham had been called into action on several occasions.

With Nigel Worthington’s men then getting a stranglehold on the game during the second period, he also denied substitute Jack Redshaw late on with a final stunning stop.

Earlier, Ingham’s first save of the afternoon saw him push a firm 25-yard drive by Jack Sampson around his left-hand upright on 17 minutes.

He then saved smartly from Andy Fleming at his near post before acrobatically pushing over Tony Diagne’s header with his finger tips.

At the other end of the pitch, however, Morecambe ’keeper Barry Roche’s first contribution to the game was to pick the ball out of his net on the half hour.

Michael Coulson’s corner from the left saw Wes Fletcher win a header in the visitors’ penalty box and Jarvis swivelled swiftly to fire a shot into the roof of Roche’s net from three yards.

It was Ingham, though, who con-tinued to be the busiest ’keeper prior to the break with a further flying save preventing Diagne from curling a 25-yard free-kick inside his right-hand post.

In the second half, the Minstermen began to play with more confidence and purpose, spurred on by some early raids down the right by Lanre Oyebanjo.

On 55 minutes, Fletcher narrowly missed the target after the ball bounced invitingly up off the turf 15 yards from goal and Keith Lowe, underlining his threat from set-pieces again, hit a post with a header from Luke O’Neill’s free-kick.

Fletcher then collected a Montrose pass before sidestepping Chris Doyle and firing away a low shot that Roche kept out well with his legs.

Other opportunities saw Montrose aim a wildly ambitious 40-yard attempt out of the ground and Ryan Bowman snatch at an edge-of-the-box chance.

Morecambe’s threat had been minimal in the main since half-time but, on 81 minutes, many home supporters feared the worst when Shrimps substitute Padraig Amond outstripped Lowe on the left and picked out an unmarked Redshaw on the far post with a perfect delivery.

Redshaw did everything right, directing a downward header inside Ingham’s left-hand post but the City ’keeper’s reflexes were startling, as he clawed the ball to safety on his goal-line.

In safeguarding maximum points, Ingham also moved to within ten shut-outs of the legendary Tommy Forgan’s club record for clean sheets.

If he keeps fit and maintains yesterday’s form, that target also remains firmly within his grasp.

Great stuff! Hopefully bring in 1 or 2 signings in the window that help us push up the table. Would love Adam Reed back. Not being playing at all for Burton. Get him on loan for the rest of the season?

That's more like it! The players fighting for every ball, the manager making intelligent team selections to counter a fairly 'big' side. No sense getting carried away as we're still way down the table, but this is a big first step. NW has earned a reprieve.

Good win today with a battling performance in less than ideal conditions. Not much on the floor football by either side. Ingham returned and played well with at least 4 good saves the best in the 81st minute saving a header down on the line.as Mccrary did not feature I assume he has returned to Wolves. If he has we need a cover keeper quickly. Heard a rumour Chambers going to Burton so maybe a swap for Reed. Banjo put in a good performance and got MOM. Apart from one good through ball Platt was fairly anonymous again though he worked hard.,as did Fletcher and Montrose, Lowe and McGurk. A very welcome win moving us up to 20th. Need another 3points on Saturday. Come on City!

YCL , yes it was a tremendous performance and I agree with what you said you know the admiration I have for NW , its a pity you added the BUT, and his
reprieve. I don't believe he was on day release only by people on here, as I have said we have a good squad they proved it today, MORECOMBE came to win this match and we prove we are no push over for any team in the league
Best Wishes for 2014, Good health and enjoy your football.

Huge relief to get a win at last and just about deserved it particularly 2nd half when we should have put the game to bed. 1-0 wins are always hugely satisfying as it shows we can grind out wins. We just need more of them!

The workrate today was fantastic but its the minimum expectation for each game. Banjo deserved MOM but would now like to see him back at fullback as he doesn't have the guile to be really effective as an attacking wide player.

Also thought Montrose was excellent and if only he could improve his passing he would be a good player at this level. However, today just emphasised how much we need more quality and composure in centre midfield as sadly young Platt was lacking again today. Can't fault his effort but I'm afraid he's just not ready for L2 and looked lost today.

Ingham also made some good saves particularly near the end which was vital.

We now need to follow this up with another 3 points on Sat against a decent side in Dag and Redbridge. Looks like Jarvis will be out for a while so time for Bowman to show what he can do.

Great battling performance but at times the midfield was by-passed as usual - a better side than Morecambe would have made us pay. As it was Ingham was superb so while not doubting the spirit and effort today, it could have been very different without him on top form. Banjo was excellent - always prepared to run at the defence and with luck he'd have had more reward. But well done to the team today - a repeat show against Daggers and we'll be in good shape for coming games against struggling sides (Northampton and Bristol).

100% record in 2014, and long may it continue. My prediction of 3 straight wins might just come true yet. Ingham made some great saves, Banjo is growing in confidence and Coulson gave everything. Still a few things to work on in training but to get the 3 points is wonderful. Nice to see that Peppa07 now acknowledges that luck can make a difference in a game of football.

After some dire performances todays match was a welcome relief. But like some of the previous posters have already said, dont lets get carried away by one result, we are still a long way from being where we want to be. A much better display from Lewis Montrose, I thought that he had a long overdue decent game. Michael Ingham justified his recall to the team, and his saves kept us in the game. Not everything was perfect but the result was the main thing. But it will only turn out to be a good result if we can build on it and start climbing up that league table.

Full marks to all the players for an excellent fighting performance. Unlike many commenting on Radio York I felt the referee was a huge improvement today and let the game keep flowing with few whistle interruptions. A blow losing Jarvis though.

Ha ha - no problem acknowledging that, but you make your own luck and everything evens out over a season. One thing I noticed today was a greater readiness to have a shot at goal. That's one way of making luck count.

Credit where due an improved performance and at long last 3 points. No faulting the work rate, and today we won our share of second ball. Mightily indebted to Ingham for 3 or 4 good saves but deserved winners in the end. One swallow doesn't make a summer and so really hope that we can follow up with another win on Saturday. Will be interested to see the in and out activity over the coming days, was amazed that we had no sub keeper today what is the story there? Credit too to the ground staff, I had half expected a postponement given the relentless rain but pitch looked in great nick. Can we make it back to back wins? Here's hoping!

As others have stated a good battling performance which does however still fail to hide the fact we have problems in central midfield, no creativity at all, hopefully Worthington strengthens in the next few days. Ingham had a very good game and he now hopefully realises its more than just about banter with the longhurst. Coulson did enough to show he deserved a run in the team and upfront I still think Fletcher is our best striker. Thank god for the three points but it's fooling no one.

Well done to all those supporters who turned out for the lads on a horrible day and rewarded with 3 pts,thats the type of determination we want playing for the badge lets hope we can now kick on,Dagenham will be tough but play like Morecambe so beatable. You can now tell Ingham was playing before with injurie,far more active across his area I felt and some quality saves ,Monty was immense at times has was Banj but it was a good team performance all round. I did think although the ref kept the game flowing he allowed a lot of foul play on both sides and was poor in when booking Montrose why did Drummond not follow him, and the tackle on Fletch near end was worse than Bowmans sending off at Southend, consistency boys please. We all want flowing football but not lets cause problems to arrive by your performance and injurie to players at that expense. To all fellow fans Have Happy New Year.

What on earth was you looking it at, shakes head in total amazement.

Mr miller made several errors in the game missed foul after foul i dont buy this trying to let the game flow a foul. The tackel late on was a cast iron red card. he got several simple ball in ball out calls so badly wrong and deserved 1 point for just showing up.
i think you were still a little tippsy from the night before. dear oh dear

if you can report correctly just dont bother at all.

I'm probably a bit old school but at first sight I thought the challenge I think you are referring to was a just a really good hard tackle in which the defender got the ball and then the man. It was similar to the Lowe challenge for which he got booked against Oxford. I was expecting the ref to give a corner.

I appreciate by today's rules some would have seen it as a red card but it just goes to show how people can see the same incident a completely different way. Maybe if I saw it again I may change my mind but at the end of the day the referee only gets to see it once before making a decision.

Personally speaking I wish we could return to the days when good hard, fair tackles were not punished with a yellow or even a red card.

Phil, Leeds says...

Can't believe all the comments on here and Radio York complaining about the ref after all the truly awful officials we've had all season.

Really Dave Flett give your head a right good shake,.
How on this planet can you score the poor poor referee the same score as Banjo and 6 of his team mates,
What on earth was you looking it at, shakes head in total amazement.

Mr miller made several errors in the game missed foul after foul i dont buy this trying to let the game flow a foul. The tackel late on was a cast iron red card. he got several simple ball in ball out calls so badly wrong and deserved 1 point for just showing up.
i think you were still a little tippsy from the night before. dear oh dear

if you can report correctly just dont bother at all.

well done city 3 well earned points.
I'm probably a bit old school but at first sight I thought the challenge I think you are referring to was a just a really good hard tackle in which the defender got the ball and then the man. It was similar to the Lowe challenge for which he got booked against Oxford. I was expecting the ref to give a corner.

I appreciate by today's rules some would have seen it as a red card but it just goes to show how people can see the same incident a completely different way. Maybe if I saw it again I may change my mind but at the end of the day the referee only gets to see it once before making a decision.

Personally speaking I wish we could return to the days when good hard, fair tackles were not punished with a yellow or even a red card.
Sorry should have said wrongly booked against Oxford IMO

Agree with Phil, it made a pleasant change to see an official let a few tackles go unpunished. I'd rather that than see what is commonplace in the Premiership with players going down for nothing.
Another bugbear of mine - why doesn't the 4th official just go sit in the stand in case he is needed? That way they would not spend 90 minutes being harangued by the likes of Steve Evans just because a throw in went against his side. I dare say we''d find a way of making a substitution without the need for a fourth official and electronic gadgetry!

Fully agree. I thought the ref. had a half decent game and the "foul" on Fletcher was solidly ball first.
However the mistake to award a corner to Morecambe early on did produce the light heated response from Ellison which rightly got a round of applause from the Shippo.
For me Ingham deserved man of the match. Their manager also singled out Montrose (someone he's previously tried to sign). Although he ran himself to a standstill, Banjo wasted a lot of possession which is why I would have preferred Carson.
Having nailed my mast to a vastly different lineup the second half performance certainly justified the manager's choices.
Torquay beat our next opponents a couple of games ago but have now dispensed with Alan Knill. (Would Brass have been better staying put or did the lure of the North West prove too much?)
For us a pleasing start to the year but still much to do and we certainly cannot assume that we've turned the corner. Will the daggers be out after Saturday?

Not sure why you have to accuse people of being fools just because they have a different opinion to you.

I respect your opinion and maybe you should do the same for others even if you don't agree. It's what this forum is all about.

I agree with dadster.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion; even those that don't need to check a website to gather what is OK to think.
Some prefer a form of football that doesn't pander to the advocates of wimpy no contact sport.
Although they may be better watching netball/basketball; the easily upset have every right to their views also and to express their preferences on these pages.
Long may it be so.

Lot of what you say regards rules in todays game dadster I think correct and I don't think anything wrong with been old school we want a competitive game and players should be allowed to tackle, that aside I did think while he allowed the game to flow the incidents towards the end and flashpoint with melee and handbags at dawn was caused by him not reacting too the tempo of the game, I know a assessor would have had a few issues to raise with him in de brief and his assistants on their performance which was the same for both sides.

Just to add my two penn'orth... I thought the ref poor more for his three or four corner/goal kick decisions which were so obviously incorrect (happening right in front of me) leading to Kev Ellison's refreshing banter with the Longhurst stand - he recognised the mistakes too. Poor eyesight like that can only lead to bad feeling. Added to that his indecision on the late contretemps which led to frustration and "handbags at dawn" mentioned by a nother poster,no wonder he was relegated from the Championship league!

Apart form that, Some really hard work by Banj and Fletcher (not mentioned so far) showed that we still have a chance to turn the season around. Ingham has had a wake up call, which benefited us, and Davies still shines, and still only 18 years old!

Yes to the comments about the referee, and full marks to Ellison for having a laugh with the Shippo - credit to him for recognising the farce of the corner given to Morecambe which clearly the ref subsequently noted because he denied Morecambe an obvious corner five minutes later. It all added to the humour of the afternoon!
By the way, my MoM (as Dave Flett's) was clearly Ingham. He was immense. I couldn't see the 81st minute save too well but in the first half he made four great stops. Ingham enured the win more than once in spectacular fashion. But everyone surely knows he's a great shot stopper.

We need characters in the game like Ellison who can take and join in the banter with the fans, a old type pro who appreciates the support whatever the way,so refreshing to see a opposition forward not always moaning at the ref and with a big smile on his face when they visit our ground. Agree with comments about Ingham thought he deserved mom.
