York City finally produced a glittering performance for their fans by beating high flying Portsmouth at Bootham Crescent last night.
The Minstermen raced into a deserved three goal lead with goals from Bradley Fewster, Lewis Alessandra and Luke Summerfield before a goalkeeping error from Scott Flinders handed Pompey’s Gareth Evans a consolation goal.
Newport County’s home draw with Oxford United does now mean that City’s battle for League 2 survival is all but over but after the match York City supporters took to Twitter to give their views on a thoroughly entertaining match.

York played with the sort of grit and determination needed to get out of a relegation battle tonight. They won't, but they tried. #YCFC
