City went nine unbeaten this evening with a 0-0 draw against Guiseley in a game which gifted numerous chances for both sides.

The last time York had played Guiseley on a Tuesday night at Nethermoor Park they were heavily beaten 6-1, along with the floodlight failure, the squad hoped for a more successful trip this time around.

Both sides came out in full attack knowing that the first goal could be the decisive factor between the two sides.

Jordan Burrow was a man full of confidence in the contest and that showed minutes in, with a 35-yard half volley hit just over the bar followed by a header just wide of the mark.

City missed a golden opportunity straight after, Green powering through on the right of the box, but his pass across just in front of an unmarked Burrow who would have been certain to score.

Jameson was called into action next, tipping over an overhead kick from Guiseley’s Lee Shaw.

Guiseley then looked nailed-on to score on 25 minutes, City heading two quickfire chances off the line in a packed penalty area and showing real heroics to keep the score level.

Both City wing backs threatened with crosses throughout the half, notably Kempster inches from getting on the end of a Ferguson ball which skidded through to the back post and just past the boot of the incoming striker.

Kempster nearly nicked the all-important goal on 45 minutes, Andy Bond driving forward and spreading the play to Ferguson, a trademark low cross followed - flashing across the box and again just missing the boot of the City frontman.

It was a miracle that the game was still goalless at half time after a rip-roaring first period,

Jameson pulled off a world-class save just five minutes into the second half, reacting well to palm out a goal bound header by Guiseley captain Scott Garner.

Later in the half Sykes-Kenworthy made an even better save, scooping a point-blank Burrow header out of his goalmouth to deny City a winner.

On 70 minutes Steve Watson opted to bolster his attacking options, bringing on Macaulay Langstaff for Kieran Green, whereas former City man Kaine Felix was introduced for Guiseley.

Langstaff pinched a ball late on from the Guiseley defence and laid-off to Burrow who struck first time from the edge – just the boot of an opposing defender blocking his goal bound effort.

10-goal man Aaron Martin had been quiet all game for Guiseley, but nearly contributed when it mattered most with one minute to go – the former Brighouse Town man heading just over the bar from a cross.

After four minutes of added time the game ended; City feeling unlucky to have not grabbed a victory with Guiseley goalkeeper George Sykes-Kenworthy putting in a man of the match performance for the home side.
