3:32pm

30 - Andrew finds space oin behind the Bury defence following a long clearance but drags his shot across goal.

3:23pm

Bury are struggling to get to grips with the pitch, as well as York's aggressive style.

I understand they like to leave the grass long here to hinder ball-playing sides, yet the ball seems to be bouncing very high, which means they probably don't water it much either.

Whatever the reason, Bury's feathers have been well and truly ruffled, but they are starting to get more into it.

3:17pm

14 - York keeper Nick Pope launched a huge kick after claiming a Hussey corner but Jones did brilliantly to cut out the danger - controlling the ball at full stretch before clearing.

3:14pm

12 - Jensen tips over a Calvin Andrew shot that looked to be rocketing into the top corner. 

3:07pm

5 - GOAL - YORK CITY 1 Bury - Keith Lowe side foots a Will Hayhurst corner into the far corner.

3:01pm

3:00pm

Players are out at Bootham Crescent and Bury are sporting a mish-mash of their home and away strip, with white shirts and red shorts to avoid a clash with York's red and white tops and blue shorts.

Not sure why? My mind has gone blank, but don't Bury have another coloured strip?

2:48pm

Unconfirmed reports filtering through here at Bootham Crescent that David Moyes has been sacked as Manchester United manager.

Not that is of any concern to us Bury fans, just as long as the Glazers keep their paws off Flickers.

Up the Shakers! 

2:29pm

Team news

Bury manager David Flitcroft fields an unchanged starting XI for the third match running as he looks to extend their seven-match unbeaten run.

The Shakers have in fact gone only been beaten twice in the last 18 games and four times in total since Flitcroft took charge of the team at the start of December.

Temitope Obadeyi is the only introduction to the squad for the trip to Bootham Crescent, with Ashley Grimes losing his place on the subs bench. 

2:17pm

Full line-ups

YORK CITY: Pope; Oyebanjo, Lowe, McCombe, Davies; Hayhurst, Penn, Montrose, Brobbel; Coulson, Andrew.

Subs: McGurk, Jarvis, Platt, Bowman, Allan, Ingham, Reed.

BURY: Jensen; Jones, Mills, McNulty, Hussey; Soares, Sedgwick, Tutte, Mayor; Hope, Nardiello.

Subs: Cameron, Procter, Miller, Rose, Platt, Charles-Cook, Obadeyi.

Referee: Geoff Eltringham.

2:11pm

Welcome to Bootham Crescent, where we are just waiting for the team sheets.

It's a game Bury must win and hope results elsewhere go in their favour to keep their chances of a place in the play-offs alive.

Nigel Worthington's York currently occupy the final play-off spot and take a seven-point cushion over Bury into today's match.

Victory for the Shakers, and defeat for eighth-place Oxford at Scunthorpe, would see them go into Saturday's penultimate game of the season at home to Portsmouth with just four points to make up on the top seven.

Anything short of three points and it will be all systems go into plans for next season, when a resurgent Bury side will be confident of launching a serious promotion campaign.

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.
