Report: York City 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

18 July 2015


The Owls continued their pre-season campaign with q 1-1 draw at League Two York City.


A first half goal from Marvin McCoy put City in the driving seat but Lewis McGugan levelled for the Owls in the second period of a routine friendly fixture.

Clear openings were few at both ends, with the focus firmly on another fitness workout in the North Yorkshire sunshine.

It was the home side that threatened in the early exchanges when former Wednesday scholar Vadaine Oliver brought the best out of Lewis Price in the Owls’ goal.

York keeper Scott Flinders then showed his credentials, dashing off his line to deal with a misplaced backpass by Keith Lowe.

But it was the Minstermen who made the breakthrough on 32 minutes.

Josh Carson delivered a teasing ball from the left into the danger zone and after a brief scramble McCoy stabled home from close range.

The Owls were stirred and came close to equalising ten minutes before the break when Tom Lees headed a Ross Wallace corner narrowly over the crossbar.

The second half started with Wednesday creating two chances inside a minute.

First, McGugan fired straight at substitute goalkeeper Michael Ingham following a Kieran Lee feed, then Marco Matias drilled a low effort inches past the post on the angle.

Caolan Lavery carved the next opportunity with a delicious cross into the six-yard box that evaded the on-rushing Atdhe Nuhiu by a whisker.

And after bossing the possession, the leveller eventually came nine minutes before time.

McGugan motored in in goal to test Ingham but the rebound fell to Matias, who played the ball back for McGugan to smash into an empty net.

Owls: Price (Dawson 76), Palmer (Vermijl 63), Lees (Loovens 46), Sasso (Lachman 46), Helan, (Dielna 46) Melo (Semedo 46), Lopez (Lavery 63), Hutchinson (McGugan 46), Wallace (Lee 46), Matias, Bus (Nuhiu 46)
