Last-gasp Olly Lee strike earns Luton victory at York

Olly Lee’s stoppage-time winner earned Luton a thrilling 3-2 victory at struggling York.

Substitute Bradley Fewster had earlier twice cancelled out goals from York’s Cameron McGeehan and Jack Marriott, but when Lee struck on 92 minutes there was no way back for the Minstermen.

York had the better of the first-half exchanges with former Scotland international Derek Riordan going close from 12 yards after a powerful left-wing burst by Femi Ilesanmi.

Vadaine Oliver also forced a near-post save from Hatters goalkeeper Mark Tyler.

It was Luton, though, who went ahead on 52 minutes when McGeehan headed in Danny Green’s left-wing corner to the far post.

The Minstermen responded with Fewster leveller on 63 minutes when he collected a stray Stephen O’Donnell pass before rounding Tyler and finding the unguarded net.

But Marriott restored the visitors’ lead on 74 minutes, using his back heel to beat Michael Ingham from three yards after O’Donnell had pulled the ball back from the right.

Fewster grabbed his second when he burst through the left channel and kept his composure to beat Tyler from 10 yards.

It was Lee, though, who settled matters when he fired in from 20 yards at the end of an excellent solo run.
