Conference Premier bound York City were made to settle for a point despite a solid showing against Play Off chasing Wycombe Wanderers at Bootham Crescent.

Vadaine Oliver’s first half strike was cancelled out by a late close range Matt Bloomfield effort to record a 1-1 draw which is of little use to either side.

York City started the match with more attacking intent than their opponents and striker Lewis Alessandra’s one on one effort was blocked by Wycombe Wanderers keeper Ryan Allsop mid way through the half.

The visitors soaked up the early pressure and a Jason McCarthy cross kept home keeper Scott Flinders on his toes before Lewis Alessandra’s through ball at the other end found Vadaine Oliver who slotted the ball into the net when left one on one with Ryan Allsop to end his City goal drought.

York City continued to press before the break and Luke Summerfield forced a good save from Ryan Allsop with an 18 yard driven shot before a Scott Bennett header was cleared off the line.

The home side started the second half brightly and Luke Summerfield was unlucky not to add to his side’s lead with a well taken free kick before Vadaine Oliver scuffed a close range shot.

The home side looked fragile at the back and The Chairboys came close to levelling with headed efforts from Garry Thompson and Michael Harriman.

Wycombe Wanderers piled on the pressure as City were forced back and just four minutes from the end the visitors levelled when substitute Matt Bloomfield tapped in from close range after Scott Flinders spilt an initial shot.

Both sides pushed for a winning goal but had to share the spoils after a battle at Bootham Crescent.
