YORK City will go into the Sky Bet League Two play-offs unbeaten in 17 games.

The Minstermen fought back from 2-0 down at promoted Scunthorpe to earn a draw thanks to Ryan Brobbel and Calvin Andrew goals.

Nigel Worthington's side will now host Fleetwood in the first match of a two-legged, semi-final at Bootham Crescent next Saturday, kick-off 7:30pm.

Scunthorpe forged ahead on 19 minutes when Madden headed past City keeper Nick Pope from four yards following Eddie Nolan’s left-wing cross.

Adam Reed, meanwhile, saw his eight-yard shot smothered by home shot-stopper Sam Slocombe at the other end.

The Iron then doubled their advantage on 38 minutes as Hawkridge sidestepped a John McCombe challenge before finding Pope’s bottom right-hand corner from ten yards with what looked like the aid of a deflection off Ben Davies.

But City reduced the deficit in first-half stoppage time when Brobbel received a short pass from Reed and then curled an excellent 20-yard effort into Slocombe’s top left-hand corner.

The Minstermen made a bright start to the second half with Lanre Oyebanjo dragging an edge-of-the-box effort wide.

Reed also shot wide following an untracked burst into the penalty box before Andrew levelled on 71 minutes, touching the ball in from close range after substitute Will Hayhurst a drilled a low cross into the six-yard box.

44 minutes in and two things on my mind, the lucky away maroon jumper was to be burnt and everything we feared about City not having enough for the play offs had been on display. Cue a wonder strike from Brobbel and what a difference a goal made.
Second half I thought City played their best half of football in 2014 and grabbed a very deserved equaliser and whilst a draw was probably right then if either side deserved it then that side was City.
Andrew had an immense second half but real credit to Hayhurst who came on and played wide left. He really looked as though the spell on the bench had worked wonders for him. He really made an impact so credit to him. For once the offensive play compensated for what he lacks defensively.
It's impossible to be anything but delighted with the 49 points from 23 matches since Jan1st. Would have loved to see TY get a cameo role for a few mins but the match situation dictated otherwise.
So onto Fleetwood and just hoping that the second half front foot performance is on display. Despite being the team that I least fancied playing - not sure why- we only ended up 5 points off them so onwards and upwards let's fill BC next Saturday night and give it a right go!

Credit to the team for a brilliant second half display, prompted by the introduction of Hayhurst who had a great half. Even bigger credit to the City fans today, by getting right behind the team after going two down, and encouraging them to a real fight back. The team responded to the fans efforts with a fantastic second half of full on pressure, resulting in a well deserved point. Roll on Next Sat night.

A very rare sloppy defensive display in the first half ,saw us concede two goals, I thought that we were going to get hammered. Then out of the blue Brobbel scored a screamer. From that moment on City were brilliant and they domnated the game. The second half display was by far our best 45 minutes of the season. Fantastic support from the travelling City fans. A really enjoyable day out, and a great result. Leaving the ground some Scunthorpe fans told us that "York would take some beating in the play-offs" - "Lets hope that they are right".

Super York fans - this response from the Scunthorpe Telegraph says it all:-

Firstly congratulations to the team on getting promotion as Runners Up.Its a shame we could not get the title today but as Chesterfield won it was out of our hands. A great season all the same, lets hope for more of the same next. There will be much work to do. Now on to the point I would like to make. For most of the 90+ minutes there was one team with around 6000 passive supporters and another team practically playing a home game! Full credit to York's supporters, they made the intimidating second half atmosphere whilst they pressed corner after corner, whilst at the other end we stood and watched. Whilst we were 2 :0 to the good there was a brief chorus of "We are Top Of The League" and of course the obligatory post goal celebration but precious little else! If the fans don't appear bothered how does that inspire the team? But at 2:0 you would have thought it was York getting promoted and us getting relegated! Without a strong vocal backing from the fans - especially when the opposition has one its as if the fans are saying they still don't believe. That may be the case but they have to want to win, want to support. Get behind the team create that intimidating atmosphere the York contingent did today - or else! The team are going to need it playing in a division higher. I trust Mr Swan will provide the funds to strengthen the team, what does it take to strengthen the vocal support of the fans

Great second-half performance where we committed more up to attack and showed that we have the personnel and the character to turn around a two goal deficit. We aren't just a side who can defend a 1-0 lead but one who can adapt their tactics to fight back - just what we need to take into the two games against Fleetwood. For me, Coulson was the City MotM - great work rate and lead the line with skill, closely followed by Oyebanjo - looks very good when he links up with the attacks. Also, with Reed in the middle and Hayhurst wide left, we look more balanced and potent and at last, Ryan Brobbel is also starting to play to his abilities - what a goal! One game at a time but we can take on Fleetwood with real confidence. COYR.

A fantastic day out. The atmosphere created by the fans was nothing but superb and completely agree with the commentary above. I said to my friend after the game how suprised i was at the lack of noise made by the scunthorpe fans.

We had an ok start but werent closing down quick enough and credit to scunthorpe, their passing and movement first half was very good. Nice psychological edge going into half time Brobbels goal. 2nd half Montrose off and we had much better balance. Hayhirst was fantastic going forward, lots of energy, likewise with 'banjo' and coulson.

Also, credit to the police at the end of the game allowing both sets of supporters on to the pitch. Kept everything in control.

Now for Fleetwood at home. Let's get another intimidating atmosphere with sell out crowd and really get the stadium rocking!! COYR, lets get to Wembley!

Just a thought, my team for the first leg would be:
Pope
Banjo. Lowe. Mccombe. Davies
Brobbel. Penn. Reed. Hayhurst
Andrew. Coulson
For me, I like Montrose as a ball winner in midfield, but he must be paired with an attack minded player which Penn is not. Penn has been brilliant and a great captain, and paired with the Reed we saw yesterday in Midfield (back to his best) we look so much better. Problem in the first half was how deep the midfield was playing which gave some good footballing minds time and space on the ball. second half we pressed with urgency and they resulted to hoofing the ball, and we all know who can deal with that? Hayhurst's break has done him a world of good and he looked a top player yesterday, as did Brobbel from 40 mins onwards. Calvin brilliant as usual, proving all the doubters wrong. Couple of things I was a tad disappointed by was Coulsons decisions when he had time on the ball, not like him at all, and our set pieces as we have the players to be one of the best from them but we need to get them free from markers. Brilliant atmosphere as per, keep it up for the playoffs and hopefully Wembley!

I have lived in North Lincolnshire since1978 after moving from the "homeland" in an attempt to expand the empire of Yorkshire!

Yesterday is another example of why I have remained faithful to YCFC and never ever contemplated crossing to the dark side and supporting Scunthorpe (6 miles from my house), Grimsby (15 miles) or even Hull (18 miles).

It is also pleasing to have a Scunthorpe-born son who is also an avid YCFC fan. Yesterday my wife also went to the game and came away singing all the City songs and repeating many of the chants; she even wore a City scarf shopping in TK-MAX after the match. May cost me if, sorry when, we get to Wembley!

It's nice to see people on here and other forms of media praising the support that we give to the team which i feel is the best in the league by far. I thought the police and the stewards who handled the situation well knowing that they wasn't going to be able to stop the pitch invasion went for the seperation of fans which past off peacefully which could have easily turned nasty with heavy handed policing hopefully delta will take note

that was a fantastic second half. We were poor in the first half- sorry but Montrose was seriously off the pace, and to accommodate him Penn (who worked ludicrously hard to compensate) and Reed were out of position.

That was a great solo goal on half time
- but the second half, Banjo and even Lowe (like a latter day Jack Charlton)
rampaging forward, great play in the corners, 35 minutes of sustained pressure
- and when we tired , and Scunthorpe went searching for an undeserved winner we showed the discipline defensively (all eleven players) that as someone alluded to earlier is the Plan A that has got us here
but we definitely have a great Plan B. Start Hayhurst
- and lets play Plan b before we go 2 nil down.

Yes, Poppyroad, I agree. Start with Hayhurst. He offers more going forward and allows Penn and Reed to play where they are most effective. So no changes from the side that played second half at Scunthorpe. Fleetwood will not be looking forward to playing the form team of the division.

Exactly right. The second half performance was exceptional, and I can't remember the last time City had that many corners in 1 half of a match. If we can produce similar displays in the coming games, there's every chance it'll be League 1 football next season.
