York City denied by late leveller at Rotherham United

First published in News

YORK City were denied a much-needed npower League Two victory as Rotherham United netted an injury-time equaliser at the New York Stadium.

The Minstermen looked to be heading for a 1-0 victory after Matty Blair's 63rd minute goal, but Daniel Nardiello struck in the fourth minute of injury time to snatch a point.

Results elsewhere mean City are now only four points above the relegation zone, but it could have been so much better.

Striker Jason Walker hit the top of the crossbar in the first half, while Blair was denied by former City goalkeeper Andy Warrington on 56 minutes.

When he broke clear again seven minutes later, Blair rounded Warrington and gave the visitors a precious lead.

However, the Millers piled on the pressure in the latter stages and Ben Pringle's cross was turned in by Nardiello.

As this'll be the place with all the comments, i'll repeat what i said in the other news item:

1-1 against Rotherham is a good result, but feels like a loss with conceding in the 93rd minute.

We are now FOUR points above relegation. It's truly brown trousers time.

MILLS OUT!!!!

It's very cruel and we played well so should be optimistic for the remaining games, pressure really on GM now and if we lose on Saturday he hasn't won any of the 3 games the board mentioned, I don't actually think we will go down or be close to going down, I would also like to see GM see out the season as to be fair he seems to have managed to fire up the players in the last couple of games although I imagine there will be one hell of a clear out come the end of the season as I have yet to see a player baring ingy and poss chambers at time that has shown any real league class

Yes, I think you have made this point once or twice now.

We all know where you stand, thank you.
