York City 2-0 Exeter City

Bradley Fewster
Bradley Fewster has scored three goals for York since joining them from Middlesbrough in November

Loanee Bradley Fewster's double moved York City out of the relegation zone with victory over Exeter City.

The striker picked up Michael Coulson's pass and fired in a low shot from close range to give the Minstermen the lead.

Jayden Stockley came close to equalising for the visitors minutes later but his header hit the cross bar.

Fewster won a scramble on the edge of the box to double York's lead after the break, as the home side registered back-to-back victories.

York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York:

McNamara on York v Exeter

"I thought it was a hard work performance. They caused us problems. They're a good side.

"But I'm delighted with all three points, the two goals and the clean sheet. It gives the defence a lot of confidence.

"We can play a lot better but credit to the way Exeter played the game."
