Nigel Worthington has resigned as manager of York City following Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Newport County.
The result leaves the Minstermen 22nd in League 2, level on points with Oxford, who currently occupy one of the two relegation places.
The 52-year old joined York in March 2013, guiding the club to safety in his first season in charge. Last year he led the club to the League 2 playoffs, where they were beaten 1-0 over two legs by Fleetwood.
"After Saturday's result and in the best interests of York City, I have made the difficult decision to leave the club with immediate effect.I feel the timing of my departure will give the players ample number of games to gain the points needed to ensure York City finishes in a good position in League Two by the end of the season.
In recent weeks, performances have not been up to my high standards and I take full responsibility for this as manager.
It has been an absolute pleasure and honour to have been manager of York City and I very much wish the club every success for the future."
York City's Board of Directors released a statement via Twitter, saying that Nigel Worthington's decision to resign was in "the best interests of York City Football Club."
"It is with great sadness that Nigel Worthington has decided to leave the club.
He has been a pleasure to work with and we could not have asked for a more professional and hard working manager. We will always be grateful to him for the huge contribution he made in maintaining our Football League status and for the great times we had reaching the play-offs last season.
We now must focus on the appointment of a new manager and ensuring we secure the services of the right person to take York City Football Club forward."
