Yeovil Town 1-0 York City

Yeovil earned their first league win in 17 games to send York to the bottom of League Two.

After an uninspiring start, Yeovil's Josh Sheehan had his shot saved by Scott Flinders before Francois Zoko fired over from inside the box.

The breakthrough came from the penalty spot, after Zoko was tripped by Luke Summerfield and Scott Dolan placed the ball into the left corner.

York's search for an equaliser was in vain as Yeovil held on.

York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York:

McNamara on Yeovil v York

"I thought a lot of decisions went against us today. If anybody deserved a penalty I thought it was us.

"Looking back at their one, I didn't think it was a penalty at the time and having seen it again I believe that's still the case.

"That was the turning point. For me it was never a penalty."
