Excellent news a star of the future at a high level for sure. When Dave Mcgurk is fit I believe an alternative for the left back position would be to move O'Connell there if Danny Parslow struggles or as a more attacking option.

was clearly evident that Mills was playing for a draw. tiny out of form centre forward against two big centre backs, when Ranks came on at 90 minutes showed everyone he would have been a massive threat.
Come on Mills sort it out. you got your job, you got your 433 now pick the right bloody players. Anyone with an untrained eye could see Walker was no use and Rankine was the solution. He might not be match fit but he gave more in 5 minutes than Walker did in 90. Maybe Walker would be better coming off the bench? Why bring Ranks in if you are not going to utilise him?
Get it sorted Mills and dont play for a point when there were 3 begging to be taken!!! It is your playing for a point here or there that has got us to this precarious position we are in. You were lucky to still make the play offs last season after your defending a play off place from xmas instead of challenging for the title. Just enough aint good enough as you will soon see if you carry on this way!!!

York manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio York:
"I thought we were excellent today. It was a battle away from home.
"I think both teams obviously wanted to go and win the game but it was a battle a lot in the middle of the park.
"I'm delighted with a clean sheet, I'm delighted with a point and we go home with some points on the table for us after a disappointing result last week so onwards and upwards. We keep going."

WHAT A COMPLETE JOKE! Same old phrases, same old excuses, same old bo****ks.

That said it was refreshing to hear it was not another massive point!! lmao

all that we have to play for this season is survival. draw every match until the end of the season and we stay up. a draw away at oxford i reckon was a decent result. i'd take 2 points from the next 2 right now too

I'm not one for going straight for the
Jugular....... However,
I do have to agree with you regards the substitution, Ranks for four minutes ...... C'mon Gary !
It was obvious Jase was'nt going to score against two big central men (if he played all week) and spent most of the game with his back to goal awaiting .......Dare I say it, ... RANKS.
The Big man showed what we were
Missing with his first header within seconds of coming on.
Same situation Tuesday ?
.......make it 40 not 4.

O Connell could be the best of the loan signings since Gibson. And yes, play Rankine from the start...tomorrow and Saturday. Four points please!
