Great following from the shakers faithful,it's a pity they witnessed such a poor game with so many fouls going unpunished by a referee who had a stinker of a game.

Maybe it was a game too far for some of our players and this performance was so indifferent to the sublime effort they displayed on Friday.

David will have learnt a lot about some of his squad players in this type of game,there was no lack of effort but we were up against a team who played anti-football who were unbeaten in 14 games grinding out results.

Nards sending off was stupid and idiotic,the gaffer knows that he still doesn't have all of the tools in his squad to beat the likes of York.

So in the summer the board will need to sit down with him and try to build a team worthy of promotion.

I left the ground feeling a little frustrated because I don't think the players did themselves justice to themselves and most importantly the fans.

Yes York like to let the grass grow long and don't water their pitch much which does stifle teams who want to play football on the floor but it's the same for both teams.

So that's it for certain. League 2 football at Gigg/JD next season. Let's be honest, play-offs were probably a step too far, and it's not many moons ago that most of us would have grabbed 50 points with boh hands- now we're still in with a good shout for 60 and a top half finish.

We need a new full back, another striker who can guarantee us 20+ goals in the season (are Hope or Rose contenders - not certain myself?) and a bit more guile in midfield.

I for one am content to let Mr Flitcoft and Mr Day get us the players we need during the summer break and come August, lets go for gold!

I concur with both posts above and would like to add that I really did enjoy the day out at York, other than the result.
It is a minor miracle what David and the Chairman have done after the horror of KB and big Ronnie. We are in good hands.

York may do well in the playoffs. Very physical team and that pitch...urgh. In my opinion we did not deserve to lose, a point would have been fair.

Now it is the last match against a fully confident Pompey. Should be a good match before finishing off at Morecombe.

Well done everyone at the club. We are safe and did it in style. Next year with a few additions and with David's guidance....it will be a very good team that will beat us.

Well, we had plenty of possession but, to be honest, we could have played all week and we wouldn't have scored - york were rock solid at the back. I wouldn't want to watch that every week but we don't see to have a plan 'B'. I think we have the basis of a good squad for next season with only minor work required over the summer. We play entertaining stuff, but now need to kick on and develop that cutting edge.
