YORK City clinched fourth place in the Blue Square Bet Premier with a 1-0 home victory over Forest Green Rovers.

The Minstermen's final day victory means they will face Mansfield Town in the play-offs, with the first leg at Bootham Crescent on Wednesday (7.30pm).

Adriano Moke netted the winner with eight minutes remaining, with his close range shot sneaking through the legs of goalkeeper Sam Russell.

After the match, injured midfielder Scott Kerr was presented with the Billy Fenton Memorial Trophy as Clubman of the Year.

He also won the McGill Cup as players' player of the year.

amazingly that's the first time we've won 3 league games in a row this season!
a perfect time to start shoring up the defence (well done Muzzy!) and to end the campaign with a bounce. each play-off side is now going into the semi-finals in form so it's very hard to predict anything. mansfield are slight favourites, i saw somewhere that we are 11/2 to go up?! all over that!
ashikodi and blinkhorn got the run out today and reminded us exactly why walker, chambers and blair are our first choices, not great displays but they worked hard and it's good to see them getting some more game time.
Moke was excellent, as were Doig, Parslow & Potts.
The Stags supporters seem very confident ahead of the clash on wednesday.....remind
s me of 2 years ago!
well done to all players & staff for the 2011/12 campaign.

Well done, good to see a large turn out for the match & end of season awards. Winning despite resting/ giving squad members a run out echo above Doig Parslow Moke & Potts put in a great shift Moke was tearing up the turf all game. Muzzy did well to keep another clean sheet I liked the Doig Parslow partnership Ingy would be happy with those two in front of him. Hope we can do the deed home and away for Wembley then who knows a Luton York final would be very interesting but very hard on Wrexham. Cmon City!!!

Well played City, great to see what was essentially a 'second' side get the win. Agree with the above comments - Doig/Parslow looks like a solid defensive line-up, could be one to consider for the play-offs/trophy final.

Also hats off to Musselwhite, 3 clean sheets and 3 wins for City - not a bad record!

A typical end of season game, we have probably played a lot better this season and lost. Doig was outstanding and must play in the play-offs. I dont quite share the same enthusiasm for the other players performances, nobody really caught the eye. However it was a good win, with a much changed team. Had a chat with some Forest Green fans before the game, they were certainly expecting to beat our reserve team. Perhaps thats why two of their players started scrapping on the pitch during their warm-down, best bit of action all day. Bring on the stags!.

And let's spare a thought for crappy hardware store Barnitts. They're Leeds United team finished in the bottom half.

I would agree that Diog has to start, he is head and shoulders the best of the players brought in mid season. I think we will need him big style against a Mansfield team on a roll and very physical. They will try and rough us up right from the start and Walker will probably get clattered in the first five minutes. We probably have as big a challenge coming as we did against Luton two years ago.

Totally agree with that Duffy. Mansfield over two legs with the kind of support that two ex league clubs have is going to make it a very nerve wracking experience. Todays game felt very end-of season and a bit 'phoney war,' but Stags had better beware cos we've been here before.

To be fair today was more of a friendly than anything with a second string team out. It was never going to get the same level if response.

if we had lost it would have. it was the last game of the season and we still had to win to guarantee 4th (although i would have preferred Wrexham TBH). but i see what your saying. But the negativity of some "fans" this season has been unbelievable, and it really annoys me. weve got a good manager here and a good set of players and even if we dont go up weve still had a great season and I look forward to the next one with great confidence.

Well done to the manager and all the players and coaching staff. 4th place finish is something to be well pleased with. No need to fear any team in the play offs as if we play at our best we can beat any one. Good to see us looking strong at the back and to finish with 3 clean sheets. Doig deservedly motm and Scott Brown much better second half.

Nothing to add to the above re the season or the great work GM and the lads have put in but wanted to say I thought the young lad Reece Kelly who came on making his debut looked very good indeed. Obviously early days, but a couple of good passes and a great header certainly looks a good prospect for the future. But for the moment I'm concentrating on Wednesday night, COME ON CITY!!

Well done York City in finishing 4th in a Conference League which is getting stronger year by year. Today however was pretty mediocre but what could you expect from a virtually wingless team with little pace down the outside. As a team we were propped up by a good performance from a veteran keeper and a matchless display from the centre backs Doig and Parslow. It had to be with the Managers sights on the Play Offs. What would Mills give for a fit Kerr at this moment.I have no doubt that given a fair share of luck on Wednesday night and with the strong backing of a large and partisan crowd City will take a lead to Mansfield for the away leg. This is the best chance the Club has had to get back into league football. Get behind them supporters!!

Mansfield have been allocated 1100 which they will sell easily. We could hit 7000 I think. The Mansfield away end holds around 2000.

Here's a thought; for the first time that I can recall, this season's playoffs will be contested by four teams with truly substantial football league pedigrees. City were there for 75 years continuously, Wrexham had 87, Mansfield 77 and Luton 89. It strikes me that this may be the effect of clubs with a critical mass of support (min. 2000 perhaps) being more viable in the long-term. Fleetwood's success shows that "money-bags" chairmen can still buy short-term success in the absence of that support, but it is still massively reassuring to see these clubs coming back to the fore. An argument surely for four up/ four down as between leagues one and two.

Next season is certainly not going to be any easier if we are still down here. FGR have already stated their budget will be around 1.4 million with Mansfield at least that if they are still here. Luton will be stronger under buckle and I would expect Grimsby to be very strong. The plus for us would be that we have many of the key players under contract for another season baring I think mez. If we could sign another quality striker and centre half we would be up there again. However obviously we hope we are not here anyway.

This is a good point which I also advocate and the flip side is also true, ie Macclesfield, Hereford, Barnet roughly where they belong. However, as is frequently pointed out, no team has a divine right to be in any given league, and if some moneybags steps in (FGR next season?), then so be it.

Enjoyed the pre-match minute's applause for Arthur Bottom - City fans did him proud, as well as the club presentations after the game. The in between, wasn't too great but the result was right and it was good to see the fans give Paul Musselwhite a good hand and overall, he played well - his vocals and organisation at set-pieces show his experience and well done to him and also to an outstanding Back Four performance from Chris Doig and Danny Parslow. Now is the time for us to keep confidence levels high and for the more experienced players to lead us through the two games against Mansfield, who will be tough opposition. Based on some of our home form against big, physical sides, then the concern will be that they try and out-muscle and bully us and press us back too far. The best counter tactics to that approach, will be for a return to our early season form, pass/move and get round them down the flanks with pace and get plenty of players into the box! Hope thats how we approach these games!! COYR.

I don't agree that if Luton are here next year they will be stronger under buckle. By all/many accounts they will have to slash their budget next year and be spending less, because they can't keep spending what they are and still be in this league. They will go the way of Darlo and Rushden if they keep spending like that. But Forest Green could be the new Fleetwood or Crawley if you like. So the league ain't getting any easier. Hopefully we won't be here to find out how hard it'll be next year!

I agree Challinor did not have his best game, but he has played solidly at full back and has been Mr Consistency all season, bar a bit of a runaround he was given in the first leg of the Solihull match; and a great value signing by Mills. He is better defensively than Banjo and with attacking left back options I think Challinor fits the team better. I expect Banjo will be in midfield.

Has anyone else thought that if we were to progress to the PO final (Please God, please!!) the final losers might go up irrespective of the result at Wembley? Portsmouths survial chances are rated at 50/50 and for contractual reasons I would have thought that the FL would surely bring in another team. If they did would they look at the second place Conference team or runner up in the PO? Answers on a postcard please!!!

Historically, at every level, what they do is redeem one of the relegated teams, so a relegated team from every affected division would stay up. They never promote an extra team, though God knows why.

I was definitely guilty of thinking fleetwood would fade away. I thought Wrexham and Luton would fight it out at the top. Just shows!

There is a difference between respecting peoples views and always wanting to have the last word. History is littered with those kinds of people.

The Legend Of Keith says...

A competent job done by a mainly 2nd string City line up. None of the fringe players really did enough to stake a claim on the starting 11 for Weds night. They probably helped clear up who should be retained next season though.

So we now move into the biggest few weeks that many City fans will have seen for a long time. Mansfield will prove a big test for City so we need to go at them from the off and play with pace and composure. They have been in form but now so are we. The play-offs are a lottery and this could well be our year.

The gate will be between 6,600 and 6,800 at BC. Mansfield won't sell their away allocation, but we will at their place.

Still a lot to do but this could well be the year we shine.

COYR.

Very pleased with Moke's goal cos I couldn't have got to a game on Thursday! Was expecting a bit more from one or two 'fringe' players, but Doig, Moke and Pilks impressed. Reed added determination too.
We have drawn twice against Mansfield without Walker but they have improved since so will go in favourites. First leg will be drawn I think.
The away leg on Bank Holiday will mean we have more support at Field Mill than they will have here, which is a slight advantage.
Good luck lads!

7,000+ expected for the first leg. This is York's sport at its highest level and its finest. And let's spare a thought for crappy hardware store Barnitts. They're Leeds United team finished in the bottom half.
7 thousand and 5 thousand of them have not attended the majority of the games as they are glory supporters and as for Leeds are they not in the Football League unlike York City !!!!!!!!

Average attendance this season is 3100. As we get bug all away fans and as its not the same 3000 for every game, I'd say that is a fair amount of interest for a Conference club. Get promoted and we'd soon be averaging 5000 again as we did before.
