United reserves extend winning sequence at York...
Leeds United's reserve team extended the winning run to eight games after a 1-0 victory at York City on Wednesday.
An Andy Robinson goal four minutes into the second half settled a dour encounter to keep Neil Thompson's men firmly in the hunt for totesport.com Central League title.
Thompson's side deserved a third consecutive single-goal victory, although York made United fight all the way for the triumph.
There had been little in the way of entertainment during the early stages of the game, Robinson with the only shot on target for either team.
The game livened up after the half-hour, York goalkeeper Josh Mimms denying Liam Dickinson with a volley following a David Prutton cross, and Robinson rattling the bar with a strike from distance.
York's only real opening of note came moments before half-time when Dave Lucas used his legs to deny Adam Smith.
The deciding goal came early in the second period when Mike Grella provided a delightful pass for Robinson and the former Swansea man delivered a cool finish.
Playing his first game back since suffering a hamstring injury, Robinson played just over an hour as did on loan striker Dickinson.
The second half was also void of real chances, but Bradley Johnson did hit the post as Leeds almost bagged a second with 10 minutes remaining.
United: Lucas, Richardson, White, Hughes, Milne, Lees, Prutton (Hatfield), Johnson, Dickinson (Elliott), Grella, Robinson (Falkingham). Subs: Edwards, Darville.
