Match ends, York City 1, Accrington Stanley 5.
Accrington Stanley thrashed York to ensure the home side equalled a club record of eight straight defeats.
Matty Pearson opened the scoring with a 25-yard deflected strike before Billy Kee doubled their lead with a tap in.
Josh Windass added a third from the penalty spot after Stefan O'Connor tripped Tom Davies, and Kee made it 4-0 after Sean McConville's shot was saved.
Bradley Fewster found the bottom corner for York but Shay McCartan wrapped up the away win with a 20-yard shot.
York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York:
"I am disappointed with a lot of things defensively. I think offensively we started the game well and we looked a threat.
"But I thought they looked like a team that had met each other just yesterday. That was the case with the back four.
"We did think it would be a big ask for them to click so early but the signs are there we'll be a good threat going forward if we can sort the defence out."
