JACKIE McNamara will evaluate York City’s 6-1 thrashing at win-less Guiseley before deciding whether to carry on as manager.

The Minstermen extended their run without an away win to 29 games following a disastrous defeat to the National League’s bottom team.

Matt Fry gave the Minstermen an 11th-minute lead, but four goals in 12 first-half minutes from Jake Cassidy, Alex Purver, Will Hatfield and Jordan Preston turned the game on its head and, even an hour-long delay for floodlit failure could not save McManara’s side, with Jermaine Hylton and Rob Atkinson adding further goals.

Club owner Jason McGill watched the Nethermoor Park debacle and McNamara now plans to discuss his future with the chairman.

The City boss said: “I speak to the chairman two or three times every day and we have a great relationship that will go beyond football – I think. I’ll be evaluating everything with him and we will take it from there.

“Somebody else might get a better chance at it after what I’ve had thrown at me that was nothing to do with football. It has affected me, my family and the chairman.”

Despite incurring a £500 fine for failing to pay for an Edinburgh-to-York train fare and The Press giving him every opportunity to explain the offence by delaying publication of the hearing by a day, McNamara went on to suggest he had become a victim of the episode.

“It was victimisation and lies and I was talking to my lawyers about it before this game, so it has been a distraction,” he claimed.

On his team’s display, meanwhile, he added: “We started well and went a goal up, but our game management was not there and you could see the fear again in the players. The fans showed their frustration and there were some horrible scenes with them baying for blood.

“A lot of players couldn’t handle that and they bullied us in a lot of areas of the pitch. You’ve got to use your head and keep your shape and discipline but, when people make mistakes, that reflects on me and I’m the first to blame.”
