O’Flynn pegs back Minstermen

John O’Flynn salvaged a point for Exeter with a goal seven

minutes from time as the Grecians drew 1-1 with York at St James’

Park.

The first half was a tight affair with chances few and far

between. York’s Michael Coulson saw a free kick palmed over the

crossbar by Exeter goalkeeper Artur Krysiak, but that was as good

as it got for the Minstermen.

Exeter’s best chance came when Liam Sercombe was played in by

Jamie Cureton and he laid the ball across goal for Arron Davies,

but the Welshman skied over the bar from inside the six yard

box.

York broke the deadlock seven minutes into the second half.

Jonathan Smith’s pass sent Michael Coulson clear and he showed

great feet before firing a shot that Krysiak could not keep

out.

Exeter stepped it up and Arron Davies came close with a shot

from 25 yards, but with seven minutes remaining, O’Flynn slotted in

superbly from Matt Oakley’s cross.

Exeter could have won it in the closing stages, but Elliott

Chamberlain took too long when through on goal and York got back to

clear.
