YORK City's fight against relegation from the Football League will go down to the final game of the season.

The Minstermen beat Southend United 2-1 at Bootham Crescent, but relegation rivals AFC Wimbledon drew 2-2 at champions Gillingham and Barnet beat Wycombe 1-0.

The victory, secured with first-half goals from Adam Reed and Matty Blair, moved City above next weekend's opponents Dagenham & Redbridge, meaning a point will be enough to guarantee League Two football next season.

Reed gave the home side the perfect start in front of a crowd of 5,975, lofting a shot over the Shrimpers 'keeper in the first minute.

Ryan Leonard's deflected effort then found the corner of Michael Ingham's net for a 22nd-minute equaliser, but last season's City top scorer Matty Blair lashed in a second four minutes before the break.

Southend threw everything at York in the latter stages of the second half, with sponsors man of the match Chris Smith forced to clear off the line in injury time.

The visitors also had the ball in the net only to be flagged offside, and Nigel Worthington's men stood firm to pick up their third win in five unbeaten matches to keep their destiny in their own hands.
