Tactical Report: 5th November 2011 York City 0 Wrexham 0 Blue Square Bet Premier

Just found the tactical report from the game in 2011 I referred to in my recent post about Gary Mills: the best goalless draw I’ve ever seen as his York side took on Andy Morrell’s Wrexham. I was comparing Mills’ style to Pep Guardiola’s even then!



What would Sky have called today if they covered the Conference? Summit Saturday? Second played fourth at Kenilworth Road as Fleetwood travelled to Luton, but having seen the quality of this game, they would have to be something special to deny either of these sides a spot at the top of the table. A match between the third and first placed sides only ended goalless because of Wrexham’s superb defensive organisation on the one hand and a couple of remarkable saves by Mike Ingham at the other. As an atmosphere of mutual appreciation blossomed, from the mass back-slapping on the pitch at the final whistle to the warm applause from York’s fans when it was announced that over six hundred fans had travelled from North Wales to support their team, it was hard not to hope that these two sides would maintain this form and claim the two promotion spots.
