City missed out on all three points at Aggborough after taking the lead twice, but being pegged back by the home side 

The Minstermen started the game well, with a well-worked move including a head-on by Jake Cassify to Olly Dyson on the wing who beat his man and fizzed in a low cross to the boot of Michael Woods who scored his fourth of the season.

But it was a former York player who grabbed the equaliser in Keith Lowe who headed a cross following a short corner into the back of the net with Pete Jameson unable to clear with a punch.

It was a dominant first half by City and Steve Watson's men carried that on in the early stages of the second half, winning a penalty for a handball following a counter-attack down the left wing which was crossed in towards Jack Redshaw - the Harriers defender using his arm to intercept.

Captain Sean Newton stepped up to bag his sixth of the season and his second from the spot, sending Luke Simpson the wrong way to give his side the lead once again.

Loanee Jason Cowley came on for the home side on the 71st minute and it took just eight minutes for the forward to open his account for the Harriers in spectacular fashion, arrowing into the bottom corner with a first-time strike following a counter-attack.

The game ended a frustrating 2-2 draw after four minutes of injury time and City dropped down to 7th in the National League North. However, the gap between themselves and top spot narrowed to nine points with four games in hand.
