York City 1-1 Wycombe Wanderers

| April 9, 2016

Wycombe Wanderers travelled to York City on Saturday 9th April 2016 for a game they needed to win to be sure of maintaining their place in the League Two play off zone.

Wycombe made a positive start to the match when, in the sixth minute, Michael Harriman placed a right footed shot in the direction of the top centre of the York goal however the shot was saved.

In the thirty fifth minute York City took the lead when Vadaine Oliver scored in the bottom left corner from ten yards.

The blues made a positive start to the second half, most notably Michael Harriman came close to scoring in the seventy sixth and seventy eighth minutes.

The eighty eighth minute saw the breakthrough Wycombe had been looking for. Matt Bloomfield drew the scores level with a headed goal from the centre of the box which found the bottom right corner of the York net.

Unable to increase their score Wycombe had to settle for the draw which sees them drop from the League Two play off positions on goal difference.

Wycombe are now in eighth position in League Two with sixty two points from forty games. However the clubs in fifth and sixth places (Portsmouth and Wimbledon) both have a game in hand making Wycombe’s chances of participating in the play-offs this year look less likely.

Today’s match saw both sides achieve 50% possession, York managed eleven attempts on goal (eight on target) to Wycombe’s nine (five on target).

Eighteen fouls were committed during the match, ten by Wycombe players and eight by York.

The attendance at Bootham Crescent was 2,864.
