YORK City boss Nigel Worthington has applauded the double impact of striker Calvin Andrew.

Having not played a game for three months when he joined the Minstermen four weeks ago, the front-man completed a whole match at home to Bury a mere three days after only being taken off after 89 minutes at Oxford.

Hailed the City chief after the 1-0 win over Bury, which was watched by 5,225 fans - City’s biggest gate of the season: “Calvin has been a big plus for us in both boxes.

“When we lost Wes Fletcher to injury, it was a case of seeing what was around and he has answered all the questions in the last couple of weeks.

“I took him to one side after the Oxford match and told him I would give him 70 minutes and then take him off against Bury to be fair to him.

"But he played the whole game and I just told him I forgot to look at my watch."

Worthington was certain Andrew would not complain.

He added: "I am sure he will excuse me because he put in a good shift up there, as did Michael Coulson with his never-say-die attitude.

"And that’s what it takes to get you somewhere - whether that’s into the play-offs, into the play-off final or promotion.

"I am just pleased for the owners and supporters that we are giving them something to enjoy.”
