Jordan Lussey made his York City debut on Saturday against Accrington Stanley.

After joining the Minstermen on loan earlier in the week, the 21-year-old started at right-back at Bootham Crescent, completing 68 minutes before being replaced by George Swan having been booked earlier in the match.

Sadly, it was a day to forget for both Lussey and York as Jackie McNamara's side fell to a heavy 5-1 defeat to leave them in the Sky Bet League Two relegation zone.

Matty Pearson opened the scoring for Stanley before a Matty Pearson brace and Josh Windass penalty put the visitors 4-0 ahead.

Bradley Fewster pulled one back for York in the 75th minute, but Shay McCartan struck again late on for Accrington to complete the scoring.

In Sky Bet League One, Hayden White completed 85 minutes for Blackpool as they beat local rivals Fleetwood Town 1-0 at Bloomfield Road - Nathan Pond's own goal being the difference on the day.

Meanwhile in the Sky Bet Championship, Liam Trotter was an 89th minute substitute for Nottingham Forest, replacing Chris O'Grady, as they came from behind to beat Reading at The City Ground.

Having seen Matej Vydra open the scoring for the visitors inside the opening 15 minutes, O'Grady levelled minutes later before a Nelson Oliveira brace sealed a 3-1 victory and all three points for Forest.

Elsewhere, Rob Hall was an unused substitute for MK Dons as they drew 0-0 away at Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Oscar Threlkeld also remained on the substitutes' bench as Plymouth Argyle scored a last-minute equaliser to draw 1-1 away at Dagenham & Redbridge.
