York City 0-0 Cheltenham Town

Cheltenham extended their winless run to six after being held at fellow mid-table side York.

The hosts started the brightest but Wes Fletcher saw his effort blocked.

The Robins came close to taking the lead through Steve Elliott but his header went wide.

The visitors had goalkeeper Scott Brown to thank for their point though as he saved free-kicks from Michael Coulson and Josh Carson before blocking John McCombe's effort from close range.

The two teams remain locked together on 36 points, seven clear of the relegation zone but eleven away from the play-off zone.

York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:

"I thought the players put a real shift in.

Post-match: York boss Worthington

"They were very positive from the first whistle and playing against the wind in the first half, I thought we dealt with that very well.

"It was a case of making sure with the conditions we passed it a bit more in the second half to feet and not into space because once the wind got hold of the ball there was no way of catching it.

"So we tried to do the right thing, we got the ball into the box and on a good day we would have probably come away with 3 points.

"But it was a hard fought 0-0 and neither side wanted to give anything."
