This was a physical game, and certain York players were extremely lucky to escape maximum censure with their unsportsmanlike tactics. They won the battle of the bookings though, by 5 to Wimbledons 1 (Lorraine).
As the game wore on, their physical style imposed itself decisively and Rankine dived to make headed contact with a Carruthers cross, giving Brown no chance in the Dons goal
The Dons custodian did brilliantly prevent Brodie from getting on the scoresheet, twice, and those were the main highlights, as the Dons couldn't manage a clear goalscoring opportunity during the entire 90 minutes.
Back to the drawing board for Terry Brown, with a late forage into the transfer market a distinct possibility, with an identified need for a ballwinning midfielder and a capable left back, his probable priorities.
