‘Snow Hope for York as play-off odds lengthen.

Sleet vs. York
Rushden battled harsh weather conditions, and a determined York side today but came away with a deserved draw. Despite going behind early in the second-half, Chris Hope leveled the scoring just short of the hour mark. A number of chances as the game drew to a close were not taken advantage of as no further goals were scored. Rushden remained in 14th place, while York moved up a place to 10th; however, with promotion rivals Burton and Exeter both gaining all three points today, the away team could be exused for feeling slightly dissapointed with an away point.
Snow vs. York
A hard working performance but we never really looked as if we really felt we could win it.” – A York fan.
“Cold YES, but boring? Absolutely not. We played some good football today, and created a number of chances against a pretty good team. We could have easily been ahead at half-time, and responded well to going behind. We even came close to winning it. All in all, very happy with what I saw today.” – A Rushden fan.
“Both teams had little periodsof supremecy, but a draw was probably fair.” – A York fan.
“We played well at times, and it was a good result; no one really expected us to get anything out of the game.”-Rushden fan.
“It’s a good draw if we get two home wins next week”- Colin Walker.
“This was my first match in a few weeks, and with all the “hype” of winning 5-in-a-row I had expected much better”-Rushden Fan.


An understandingly sparse crowd of just over 1400 watched the game, battling the elements throghout. Hail, sleet and snow fell regularily, but the home crowd (numbering roughly 1250 fans) were rewarded by seeing the Diamonds unbeaten league home form extend to eight games. The Diamonds last lost at Nene Park when they were beaten 3-2 by Burton in early-December. With bottom side Droylsden the next visitors to face Rushden, the Diamonds will be more than confident of extending their home run further.
