York City were once again reminded just how cruel football can be when conceding an injury-time goal for the second consecutive game against Doncaster Rovers at Bootham Crescent.

The Minstermen were in charge for much of their Capital One Cup tie until lively substitute Harry Forrester snatched an undeserved winner for the visitors in added-time.
It followed unlucky York also being denied very late on in their opening day weekend draw at Tranmere Rovers.
“It is a disappointing smash and grab,” manager Nigel Worthington told The Press. “Over the course of the game we did extremely well. We passed the ball really well and played some really good stuff.
“Over the last two games, it shows you how cruel the game of football can be. We have to live with that,” he added. “Obviously the players are disappointed. They put in a lot of hard work. The shape of the team was very good and everyone knew their role.”
Further problems for Worthington witnessed Ryan Jarvis becoming the third striker likely to be sidelined – with suspected ankle ligament damage.
