York City 1-0 Morecambe

York City recorded their first win since October and moved three points clear of the League Two relegation zone by beating Morecambe.

Ryan Jarvis scored from close range after Morecambe failed to clear Michael Coulson's corner.

Keith Lowe hit the post for York, while the Shrimps came close but Michael Ingham saved Jack Redshaw's header.

York held on for their first victory since the 4-1 success over Scunthorpe on 29 October.

Post-match: York boss Worthington

"The victory's been a long time coming, but during that period there's been a lot of draws.

"The pleasing thing today is we've managed the game quite well and we've seen the result through whilst still having a go and trying to win the game by more goals.

"I'm very pleased in the way that we played and the way that we worked.

"Obviously the result is the most important thing and we got the right one."

Morecambe manager Jim Bentley told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"We knew we could affect the game from the bench, we knew we could exploit weaknesses in York and we've done a lot of homework.

"It's all boiled down to people not doing their jobs from a corner.

"We've been undone by not winning the first phase, not winning the second phase and it's too easy for the boy to put the ball in from three yards out."
