Wes Fletcher's late goal earned York City an FA Cup replay after a thrilling six-goal draw with Bristol Rovers.

Ryan Jarvis scored from close range to put York ahead, before Eliot Richards' low drive brought Rovers level within two minutes.

Josh Carson's 30-yard volley put the visitors ahead again, while headers from Matt Harrold and Chris Beardsley looked to have won it for the hosts.

But Fletcher's late close-range finish secured the draw for York.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:

"It was a good cup tie. Performance wise I thought we were pretty good but the goals we conceded were soft goals.

"To go down 3-2 for me we're fortunate to still be in the cup.

"But credit to them they stuck at the job over the course of 90 minutes and we've earned a replay."
