Bristol Rovers goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall was the hero in a goalless draw with York in League Two.

Rovers had the best chance of the first half but Eliot Richards fired Lee Brown's cut-back over the bar from eight yards.

Mildenhall did well to push away Tom Platt's fierce shot, before denying Chris Smith's close-range effort with 20 minutes left.

And the keeper also kept out Michael Coulson's goalbound strike late on.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:

"I'm extremely pleased with the performance.

"It was a point gained, it could have been three on chances, but you have got to stick the ball in the back of the net.

"The keeper's made a couple of good saves, so over all it is a very good day's work.

"You can be disappointed that you've not won the game but you've got to pick the positives out of it, and make sure we go and repeat that again on Monday."
