York City achieved back to back wins for the first time in two months with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Alfreton Town.

City fans have taken to social media to express their thoughts after a thrilling game, which included five goals, a sending off and two penalties, one of which was saved by debutant goalkeeper Adam Bartlett.

York seemed to be equally poor at the back as they were impressive up front and fans were keen to make their thoughts clear on the need to improve the defence.

Supporters also reacted to the club’s announcement that former Sunderland striker Brian Atkinson has been appointed as the new first team coach.

Atkinson, who watched the game from the stands, was Martin Gray’s assistant coach at Darlington and his arrival stirred up mixed opinions on Twitter.

City stay 6th in the table, reducing the gap on leaders Salford to 14 points, after they failed to beat Tamworth away drawing 2-2.

It’s baby steps, but the Minstermen will be hoping to close that gap further at home to Kidderminster next week and keep up the winning momentum.
