York Away | The story of the worst City result ever?

6 months ago by Manchester City

It's the game recognised by City fans as our lowest ever point... Our Division Two visit to Bootham Crescent - on this day 23 years ago (19 December 1998) - has become part of the Club's folklore, with Joe Royle's side beaten 2-1 - a result that saw us slip to our lowest ever league position. But it sparked a significant upturn in form. We only lost two of our next 27 matches, earning promotion back into Division One via the Playoffs after a memorable final against Gillingham.
