York lose again to Altrincham by same scoreline after weekend cup exit
Altrincham claimed a second 2-1 win at York in the space of four days as they followed up their FA Trophy success with victory in the Vanarama National League.
City had already gone close through Maz Kouhyar’s curling effort when Altrincham took a seventh-minute lead from Manchester United youngster Joe Hugill’s close-range finish.
York responded and Olly Dyson forced two decent saves from goalkeeper Oliver Byrne with headers before the break.
The second half started in the same vein as Byrne denied Dyson once again.
Home substitute Shaqai Forde forced another stop from the keeper with a shot on the turn in the 68th minute and equalised five minutes later, lashing the ball into the bottom corner.
Altrincham substitute Tyrese Sinclair dragged an effort wide with his first touch, but they did grab a winner with seven minutes remaining when James Jones headed in a cross from the right.
