York City v Luton Town (1)

York City v Luton Town, Blue Square Premier, 16 February 2010.


A non-league game between two former league teams now in the fifth tier of English football and hoping to gain promotion to the league this season. Both have had a recent run of good results and started this match in 3rd and 5th positions in the table, within a few points of the leading two teams, Oxford United and Stevenage. There were 3316 spectators, well above York's average so far this season, including nearly 500 Luton supporters - not bad for a cold weekday evening match in February.


The two teams were well-matched and on good form, which produced an entertaining game with spells of attacking play from both sides. There were quite a few shots on goal, but none were successful so the game ended as a 0-0 draw, with both sides relieved to have avoided defeat.


Here, the York fans greet their team as they come on to the field before the game.
