York City conjure last minute winner at Fleetwood Town in League Two
4:58pm Saturday 1st February 2014 in Sport
TOP scorer Wes Fletcher pounced in the last minute as York City snatched a 2-1 victory at Fleetwood Town in Sky Bet League Two.
Fletcher's 12th goal of the campaign - from Michael Coulson's cross - sealed the Minstermen's first ever win over their Highbury hosts.
The away side had earlier taken the lead when Will Hayhurst's wind-assisted corner was turned in by the Cod Army's Conor McLaughlin.
However, Fleetwood cranked up the pressure with the wind behind them in the second half and eventually forced an equaliser, substitute Mikael Mandron netting from close range on 72 minutes.
The victory ensured Nigel Worthington's men immediately bounced back from Tuesday's disappointing 2-0 home defeat by high-flying Chesterfield.
City have moved up to 13th in the table in the wake of the victory.
