YORK City manager Nigel Worthington wants to bring on-loan Charlton keeper Nick Pope to Bootham Crescent on a permanent basis.

Pope kept a fifth consecutive clean sheet and his 11th in 16 games since the turn of the year during tonight’s 1-0 home win over Torquay.

The 21-year-old shot-stopper is currently third in the pecking order for the first-team gloves at the Valley but Worthington wants him to be City’s number one beyond this summer.

“Nick is a player I would love to sign for this football club,” Worthington admitted.

“He would be playing first-team football if he came here and I think we could add value to him for this football club.”

The City chief, meanwhile, was pleased with the manner in which his side contended with the loss of a crocked Josh Carson last night with Ryan Jarvis recalled to the starting line-up as Will Hayhurst’s deflected, tenth-minute strike secured maximum points.

Worthington is still waiting to hear the full extent of Carson’s suspected medial knee ligament injury – as well as that of top scorer Wes Fletcher – but added: “We were missing a big player like Josh Carson who is a bundle of energy on and off the pitch.

“He’s great around the place but it’s nice, when you lose somebody like that, that you can bring somebody else in and carry on winning games.”

Worthington also reasoned that on-loan Preston winger Hayhurst’s first goal for City – which was diverted past Gulls keeper Martin Rice by team-mate Aaron Downes – was a reward for his willingness to try his luck from the edge of the penalty box.

“Some might say the goal was bit lucky but I always say if you don't shoot, you don't score and something like that can always happen,” the City boss explained.

Full-backs Lanre Oyebanjo and Ben Davies, meanwhile, received plaudits from the former Northern Ireland chief too.

“Lanre is as good a full-back as you can get on his day and I think he has found a good level of consistency this season,” Worthington said.

“With Ben Davies, from a manager’s point of view, he is your first name on the team-sheet and then you fill in the others around it because he’s been so consistent and that’s phenomenal for a young lad of 18.”

Totally agree, nothing to add, other than can we ensure Big Nige is also under contract for next season!

Everyone, and I mean man, woman and child, down to BC on Saturday and let's sort out the support. No lulls, let's do what we do at Pompey. Need to push on and secure this playoff spot now.

Great 3 points, a few more ugly wins and we'll secure our place in the play offs. Could hardly have imagined this at the end of December. I hope Torquay manage to dig their way out of trouble though, their fans were a credit to them and they weren't the worst side we've played this season.

Certainly not one for the purists and Torquay provided the kind of test that was to be expected from a team fighting for survival. Thought that they gave Lowe and McCombe their most uncomfortable 90 minutes as a City pairing .
Banjo and Davies very solid, Penn a bundle of energy and Coulson stood out up front. Reed, Hayhurst, Bowman, Jarvis all off the pace for me.
And yet we won so a good night given result from Home Park. Banana skin avoided. Could we make it 7 from 7 in March on Saturday?

Another great 3 points built on yet another excellent defensive display. We are certainly a well drilled unit now as our recent record confirms. I had a feeling it would be a tough game as Torquay fought for their lives and made it really hard for us and it wasn't a great game.

I feel a bit harsh for saying this after our 6th straight win but I was a bit disappointed at the end as I was hoping for a more fluent attacking display but its results that count ultimately and I think it'll be another tight game against Burton. However the way our back 4 & keeper are performing then I have a feeling there will be plenty more clean sheets before the season ends so we may not need to score too many.

We missed Carson tonight as while Jarvis did ok he didn't offer the same pace and threat that Carson has. As others have said I would like to see Puri get a chance but clearly NW doesn't think he's the answer.

Bit fortunate tonight I thought. We created very little up front, but when you have a defence like ours, if you score one goal, then there's a very good chance you can win the game. Our recent stats bear this out quite clearly. Our defence, as much as our attack is proving the difference between being also-rans, to being potential play-off/promotion candidates, and yes, it is now very much a possibility, folks.

I will say this NOW,...that for our remaining matches in the league...

...If any team wants to defeat us THIS season, they will have to score TWICE, I reckon. Whether we can still keep poaching at least one goal per match with Fletch and Carson sidelined remains to be seen. It's only a matter of time before we come unstuck, but we've been saying that for the last 3 or 4 games now, ain't we?

One thing that needs to improve markedly is our offensive play as the back five have been, quite frankly, phenomenal. Coulson apart, we've been rather average/lucky and Bowman and Jarvis really need to step it up in these final few games. It wasn't a bad cameo from Calvin Andrew to be honest for the last 10 min - winning some headers, good flicks and put himself about - but that's going to be a gradual thing from the bench as Worthers' has indicated.

Banjo was a decent shout for MOTM, but Pope was exemplary throughout tonight and deserved the nod, with Davies and Lowe very solid. A special mention for Adam Reed tonight who I thought had his best game for the club for a few matches. Won some crucial tackles and put himself about a lot breaking down attacks.

For the 2nd successive game now we have won the toss and decided to attack the Shippo from the off. Clearly, Worthers' instructions are to have a right go at the oppo in the first half hour and see where it takes us. It certainly worked against Wycombe, and looked as though it was going to prove decisive tonight but credit to Torquay, they didn't buckle at all and can consider themselves quite unlucky tonight.

Hey ho, the signs of having a good team is being one that can soak up anything thrown at them and grind out 1-0 wins. Look where it has got us!!

Not the best City performance this season, but 8 wins and 2 draws from the last 10 games speaks for itself. The attendance was encouraging for a cold Tuesday night, and the Longhurst was in fine voice all throughout the game. Also, I'm sure that the ground staff will be up for an award as the pitch looks to be in stunning condition. Roll on Saturday, and would like to see over 4000 people witness 7 seven straight City wins for March.

I was one who thought putting Pope in ahead of Ingham so quickly was a mistake.

Which just goes to show that City did the right thing in appointing Nigel manager rather than me.

We football fans bang on about loyalty a lot, and I do retain a tremendous affection for Michael Ingham but (thanks in no small part to his fantastic efforts for our club) we've finally bridged the gap back into the League, and signing Pope would be another step forward for City, should Nigel be able to pull it off.

The big difference with City is that we are now getting that bit of luck that had deserted us earlier in the season. Torquay look to be doomed unless their luck changes soon. Their next match is Southend away - they will go there with three thousand "yorkies" wishing them well.

Not the most stunning of matches and we went off the boil in attack too soon, BUT we now have the personnel at the back that makes you feel that we are going to keep out the opposition attacks. Five matches on the bounce without conceding tells the story and if we can sustain this, then surely we will make the play-offs, even without Josh Carson and Wes Fletcher. Michael Coulson continues to impress and leads the front line very well, creates goal-scoring opportunities and it would now be a good time for Ryan Bowman to start putting a few of these into the back of the net! Good-luck to the Gulls in their survival battle, their second-half battling performance should give them the confidence to have a real go at getting out of their current problems. COYR.

Yes, sorry to be gripey but while the hard core support is brilliant the part timers are a let down. How the hell can so may cheer us on the streets in May of the promotion year but only 3,300 can be arsed to turn up to see a team that's winning in several consecutive games and heading for League One??
Does York deserve a League One team? I have always said the new stadium should be 10,000 capacity. I'm sorry to say I'm revising that down to 6,000 even if that disappoints Bradford and Sheff Utd when they come visiting...

Not a pretty game - very workman like - worried that many of our efforts were wasted - could, but didn't come back to bite us on the bum. We're all dreaming from now to the end of the season. How can those stay away fans miss out on what is turning out to be a great second half to the season.

I get your point. but people are fickle , it costs them nothing to stand on the pavement and watch a bus go buy its something to talk about, commitment is another thing to pay money on a freezing Saturday afternoon to watch a game
of football, as far as the New Stadium is concerned nothing wrong in revising your opinion on the size , the number of times the gate will exceed 6k while we are in the present league will be one in a hundred , I don't know unless we draw a big club in the cup,so I agree 6k maybe ok, but if we went up it may be a ratio of 1 in 20, and up again 1 in 2,we don't know , its a case of projection.What I do know if we want to be aggressive in our desire to aspire to
a higher level to compete in the market place 10k is a must.

The home crowd figures have remained pretty constant and that is our true hardcore fan base. Considering there was a certain derby match on Sky last night the crowd was good. It would be nice to think we get a few more through the turnstiles on saturday. I noticed with interest the crowd at Burton's home game last night was 1,784 that is rubbish for a team that has been in the top 7 for a while. We are 12th in the attendance table with ave of 3,600 so I think we can be pleased with that. Whatever the crowd on Sat lets make lots of noise.

The problem with 6000 if we go up is away capacity, looking at league one this season at least nine clubs would bring a large away support, we would see a stack of all ticket games that would hit the club. A 6000 capacity would only leave around maybe space for 800/1000 away fans which is just not enough.
Hoping we end up with a minimum of 8000 and using the new stadium to attract new fans as others have around the country.

As have written earlier, 10k is nearer the mark, If we do go up this season ,

Bristol City, Charlton, maybe Leeds, Doncaster. I think we will only get one bite of the apple that's when its first built, anything else will be promises and we will have to live with it, I hope City and The Knights get together soon to
show a united front not leave it up to the guy working for the council on the project, the job he's done so far has been abysmal I really don't know why he's involved.

Sorry Bill old chap, have to disagree with you on the" Brobbel wasn't cutting the ice" comment

From an attacking prospective If we compare minuets on pitch, goals scored between Brobbel and lets say, um, let me think, err Puri I'm sure you would agree he has made a very valued contribution to our season.

In terms of assists, I haven't got the stats to hand.... perhaps you might be able to let me know how many assists Brobbel vs Puri. Also, I would imagine that in respect of financial cost Brobbel won't be in the same league as Puri. Maybe you know better ?

Obviously you are far closer to the situation in terms of your presence at training sessions, I appreciate that as an ex pro you are probably far better qualified than myself to make comment but, what a negative comment to make about an extremely talented young player.

Welcome back Brobs, keep doing what you do best and try and remember that Mr Worthington probably would like you to take more defensive responsibility.

From an attacking prospective If we compare minuets on pitch, goals scored between Brobbel and lets say, um, let me think, err Puri I'm sure you would agree he has made a very valued contribution to our season.

Nice one Tamworth, well constructed rubbish, not your style , So you will be buying me and my other half Dinner, If as I expect our three main strikers as afore mentioned comes up short of 12 goals, We eat out at the LIME HOUSE.
I Bet you would include Mills in the team, with you on the bench with Puri ,
and Ingham, all gone quiet on the goalkeeper front. funny the knockers don't knock any more, ain't it Tammy.

Can't ship Puri out unless he wants to go - he's still got a year on his contract. On another note Ingham's wrist and thumb heavily bandaged at ROKO gym this afternoon so I hope we don't need him on Saturday.

Welcome back Ryan. He tormented defences on the occasions he played (especially Scunthorpe) and thus became a fans favourite. A certain person was very critical of Penn who has turned out to be one of the key performers in our winning run. I reckon Brobbel has 3 or 4 goals in him and his assists will prove to be invaluable.

Whoa there fella, well constructed rubbish ? I simply made an observation that you are out of line making the statement 'Brobbel wasn't cutting it"
You seem to be completely infatuated by the idea of Puri playing. For whatever reason NW isn't playing our Estonian international (you must know why, as you watch the training sessions on such a regular basis) We have been extremely unfortunate to have lost Carson and Fletcher probably for the rest of the season and NW has tried to replace those key players at short notice with players who have something to prove and a desire to play games of football.

Why is it such a bad idea to bring a lad back who isn't afraid to run at defences, has bags of skill and pace, knows our set-up and, has scored 3 goals. He is also presumably looking to forward his career in the game and win a contract with us for next season, who knows.

Yes, he has his failings as I observed in my previous comment. He probably needs to work harder at tracking back but that's what learning the game is all about, he's a young lad after all.

Not too sure the inference of your comment re Mills, Ingham etc. Are we talking Simon Mills or Gary Mills ?

What pleasure do you take as a supporter in knocking our new signings or Bowman and raising questions about their ability to score 12 goals between them. sounds to me like you are the one knocking my friend.

In terms of buying you and your better half a meal, you might remember my words from a few weeks ago with regard to your comment about eating your words. Always remember Billy Bullsh 1t there will be treatment available to you at YDH for your dyspepsia as you chow down.

Yorki 41, That makes two shipped in that makes three up front that cant score goals Brobble and Andrew, hasn't played a meaningful game this year and
Bowman 2 spot kicks in 16 games. You can all have a go at me but nobody can put their hand on their heart and then tell me there is 12 goals in those three in the remaining games because that's what we want from the trio,
Brobbel wasn't cutting the ice before why have him back ?.
Sorry Bill old chap, have to disagree with you on the" Brobbel wasn't cutting the ice" comment

From an attacking prospective If we compare minuets on pitch, goals scored between Brobbel and lets say, um, let me think, err Puri I'm sure you would agree he has made a very valued contribution to our season.

In terms of assists, I haven't got the stats to hand.... perhaps you might be able to let me know how many assists Brobbel vs Puri. Also, I would imagine that in respect of financial cost Brobbel won't be in the same league as Puri. Maybe you know better ?

Obviously you are far closer to the situation in terms of your presence at training sessions, I appreciate that as an ex pro you are probably far better qualified than myself to make comment but, what a negative comment to make about an extremely talented young player.

Welcome back Brobs, keep doing what you do best and try and remember that Mr Worthington probably would like you to take more defensive responsibility. I think you where extremely unlucky not to get more of a chance last time you where with us, circumstances at that time dictated that opportunity was limited.

In my humble opinion I would have played you every game by having Banj at right back instead of O'Neil thus allowing the 5th loan spot to be occupied by you.
Nice one Tamworth, well constructed rubbish, not your style , So you will be buying me and my other half Dinner, If as I expect our three main strikers as afore mentioned comes up short of 12 goals, We eat out at the LIME HOUSE.
I Bet you would include Mills in the team, with you on the bench with Puri ,
and Ingham, all gone quiet on the goalkeeper front. funny the knockers don't knock any more, ain't it Tammy.
Whoa there fella, well constructed rubbish ? I simply made an observation that you are out of line making the statement 'Brobbel wasn't cutting it"
You seem to be completely infatuated by the idea of Puri playing. For whatever reason NW isn't playing our Estonian international (you must know why, as you watch the training sessions on such a regular basis) We have been extremely unfortunate to have lost Carson and Fletcher probably for the rest of the season and NW has tried to replace those key players at short notice with players who have something to prove and a desire to play games of football.

Why is it such a bad idea to bring a lad back who isn't afraid to run at defences, has bags of skill and pace, knows our set-up and, has scored 3 goals. He is also presumably looking to forward his career in the game and win a contract with us for next season, who knows.

Yes, he has his failings as I observed in my previous comment. He probably needs to work harder at tracking back but that's what learning the game is all about, he's a young lad after all.

Not too sure the inference of your comment re Mills, Ingham etc. Are we talking Simon Mills or Gary Mills ?

What pleasure do you take as a supporter in knocking our new signings or Bowman and raising questions about their ability to score 12 goals between them. sounds to me like you are the one knocking my friend.

In terms of buying you and your better half a meal, you might remember my words from a few weeks ago with regard to your comment about eating your words. Always remember Billy Bullsh 1t there will be treatment available to you at YDH for your dyspepsia as you chow down.
Must be something what I said to awaken the tiger, why didn't you say, Bill that's rubbish. you have spent a lot of time talking a load of nothing ,and those that gave you the thumbs up are of the same ilk. I hope you slept well then you don't need much sleep your on benefits.
I thought his comment about Brobble was right, it wasn't that he wasn't cutting it it was that we had too many loan players and other positions were in mire need of cover. And like he said your comment about Ingham and Mills had no relevance. And further still your benefits comment is bang out of order.

If you're going to comment on here when you've previously admitted you're not actually a born and bred city fan and haven't actually been to a game, maybe it would serve you well to be a bit less aggressive to those that are

Morning, folks, nice to see the postings on here followig there usual cours of descending into attacks on each other!

I, for one, am glad to welcome Brobbel back. Perhaps we will see more of the best of him now that the defence has been sorted out. Josh Carson is a big loss as he has given us the creative edge we have been missing in midfield, hope Ryan Brobbel can emulate this - from a number of friends/relatives who went on Tuesday I understand we reverted to hoofing the ball upfield in the second half. I don't mid ugly wins (I don't mind any win!) but do wonder if the style of football goes some way to explaining the disappointng attendances at BC. When we pass the ball and play with intensity we look very dangerous and entertaining. Now we are safe from relegation, let's reward the fans by playing footbal. COYR

I don't mid ugly wins (I don't mind any win!) but do wonder if the style of football goes some way to explaining the disappointng attendances at BC. When we pass the ball and play with intensity we look very dangerous and entertaining. Now we are safe from relegation, let's reward the fans by playing footbal. COYR Tug job

Mr Bailey, . You have stated in the past that you only moved from the south recently, you have no right to insult supporters who have been following this club for many many years - please show a little more respect!
PF,,, Lets get a couple of points straight.
1,,,,I moved here 11 yrs ago
2,,,,I have not insulted supporters ONLY when one questioned my integrity
as a certain poster has.
3,,, I have nothing but praise for York City and those who support them as I have said on here before
4,,,,If the benefit remark was offensive then I retract that remark,
5,,, I do watch City and would be very happy to meet any of you and buy a drink if you wish to reveal your identity as would be happy to reveal mine at BC.
6. The problem with most of the replies to my posts on here suggests my knowledge of the game are without foundation and gets personal , its a pity some cant take it at face value as I take theirs..

Fair enough BB - start again with a clean slate and try not to get carried away in future.

I'll have a Guinness please. I'm the one in the Longhurst with the red top on, where will you be?
