York relegated after defeat to promotion chasing Accrington

York will play Vanarama National League football next season after their relegation was confirmed with a 3-0 loss at second-placed Accrington Stanley.
The Minstermen, who only returned to the league in 2012, went down with a whimper as they had just one shot on target - which came in the 87th minute.
For Stanley, Reading loanee Tarique Fosu's first-half strike and a double from Josh Windass secured a vital three points with keeps them in the automatic-promotion spots, two points ahead of fourth-placed Bristol Rovers with two games to go.
It was a cagey opening with the first real chance not coming until the 17th minute when Piero Mingoia's cross found Billy Kee but his header was straight at Scott Flinders.
Stanley broke the deadlock in the 35th minute when Flinders couldn't keep hold of a cross from Windass and Fosu pounced on the loose ball - the winger's second in as many games.
Stanley should have extended their lead eight minutes after the re-start when defender Tom Davies had a free header from a Mingoia cross but it hit the chest of Flinders and bounced out to safety.
The Reds piled on the pressure and it finally told in the 69th minute as Adam Buxton's corner was only half cleared to Windass on the edge of the area and he volleyed home superbly.
York's only shot on target came three minutes from time when Luke Summerfield fired at Ross Etheridge, before Windass netted his 16th goal of the season in injury time, shooting through a crowd of bodies from 10 yards.
