If you have 1/4 of an hour to waste you can listen to commentary highlights and an interview with York`s manager on BBC North Yorkshire. http://www.bbc.co.uk...fc/listen.shtml

I`m sure Alan Partridge and Barry Parker are one in the same <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/ooo.gif" alt="" />

Match report of this afternoon's home draw in the clash against York City

Canvey Island ended York City's hopes of equalling a 42-year-old record when they held their in-form former Football League visitors to a 1-1 draw at Park Lane.

York had won six games on the trot before Saturday's clash and victory at Canvey would have seen them attempting a best-ever eight straight wins at home to leaders Accrington Stanley next weekend.

The Minstermen had the near gale force wind in their favour in the first half, although it was tending to blow the ball to the right-hand side of the pitch.

The visitors forced two early corners but a clear indication of just how tough conditions were going to be came in the third minute when Clayton Donaldson broke clear but saw the elements blow the ball out of play.

Danny Potter had to be alert after six minutes when midfielder Mark Convery fired in a near post effort and three minutes later a 30-yard effort from Emmanuel Panther was tipped over by the Canvey keeper.

A dangerous ball into the box in the 25th minute saw James Dudgeon almost set up Convery who got the faintest of close-range contacts but the ball ended in Potter's arms.

Just about Canvey's first attacking move came when Dwain Clarke broke down the left on the half-hour, but York dealt with his cross comfortably.

This signalled the start of Canvey's first dangerous period and Ben Sedgemore was only just off target from the right after a good move. Then star striker Lee Boylan fired in a shot that was blocked.

York retaliated with a 33rd minute break down the right only for Andy Bishop to head Stephen Thomas' cross wide.

Canvey forced a couple of quick corners before the break, but they came to nothing and they were happy to have held their in-form hosts in the first half.

Kezie Ibe came close to breaking the deadlock when he broke on the left of the box and fired wide of the far post on 48 minutes.

But, despite Canvey having the elements in their favour, it was York that took a 56th minute lead when Andy Bishop picked up a throw-in on the right-hand side of the box and pulled the ball back for Darren Dunning to fire home his first goal of the season into the roof of the net.

Canvey were having a lot of pressure without causing too many problems. But that all changed after 75 minutes when, from a corner on the right, Clarke fired over a set-piece and visiting keeper Chris Porter parried the ball into the air for Boylan to head home.

York went in search of a late winner and Convery fired narrowly wide with ten minutes left before Dave McGurk headed another corner wide.

At the other end Clarke fired in a dangerous free-kick from the right and, when Boylan got a close-range touch, McGurk was on hand to clear the danger.

As a York City fan, I thought it was a pretty good game in difficult conditions. Before kick-off I would have been happy with the draw. Having been at your place when you beat us 4-0 last season I expected the worst!

I liked your new bar for visiting supporters - the bar staff were brilliant too. The Policing was a bit over the top though!

Hopefully we won't be back to yours next season as we're still on course for the play-offs. Good luck to Canvey Island for the rest of this season.

I thought it was a good game, but it was far too cold to be able to really enjoy it.
I'd like to play York again next season, but only 'cause I fancy the trip away - otherwise I wish them luck on returning to the football league.
