York manager Gary Mills was pleased to pick up a valuable point against in-form Aldershot following a 0-0 draw at Bootham Crescent.
With both Jason Walker and Jamie Reed leading the line, the closest York came to scoring was through midfielder Michael Potts with chances few and far between for both sides.
"When it's a horrible game and not the best of games you make sure you don't lose and we did exactly that," he said.
"There's been a few occasions this season when we've ended up with nothing but we've got ourselves a point.
"They made it hard for ourselves by pressing very high and they didn't give us the opportunity to play from the back as much as we would have liked to and it wasn't a great game."
Aldershot manager Dean Holdsworth hailed his side's performance as they picked up a valuable point on the road.
Following three wins in a row in all competitions, Holdsworth believes a goal was the only thing lacking from a positive performance with Craig Reid missing a glorious chance in the final ten minutes.
"I am really proud of those boys," he said. "They've gone through an unbelievable amount of hard work to get up here due to the conditions we had on Friday. I thought we were the better side but the only thing we lacked was the finishing touch.
"You know you're dominant when you hear the home fans booing and you know you're in control. They changed the system and had a couple of counter attacks against us but I thought we were comfortable and the only thing lacking from us today was the final bit of the jigsaw.
"It's a tough place to come to but we've given a good account of ourselves and on another day we would have won that game."
