Matty Blair sends York City into Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final
4:42pm Monday 7th May 2012 in Sport
GOAL hero Matty Blair struck in extra time to send York City to Wembley in the Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final.
The Minstermen's semi-final against Mansfield Town appeared to be heading for penalties at 1-1 on aggregate when Blair bagged the winning goal with nine minutes remaining.
A minute later the Stags had defender Ritchie Sutton sent off for a second bookable offence and City managed to hang on.
York now face a Wembley double header, taking on Newport County in the final of the FA Trophy this Saturday before facing Luton Town or Wrexham in the play-off final on Sunday, May 20.
