York City boss Steve Watson hailed captain Jordan Burrow’s importance to the team after the striker scored for the first time in 11 games, York Press report.

The 26-year-old forward took his tally to 18 for the season with City’s second goal in a 3-1 victory at National League North play-off hopefuls Bradford Park Avenue.

He went on to be hauled down in the incident that saw home defender Shane Killock sent off before teeing up Macaulay Langstaff for the final goal of the game in stoppage time.

Afterwards, a pleased Watson declared: “Everybody in the dressing room, including the coaching staff, will tell you how important Jordan is to us.

“Strikers are sometimes judged by goals and, quite rightly so, I suppose, but he gives us so much more as well with his defending at set-pieces and his willingness to run the channels and give opposition defenders a nightmare.”
