YORK City might have scored four in Saturday's home win over Farsley Celtic - but manager Steve Watson is continuing to strive for perfection.

Kurt Willoughby, Michael Woods, Clayton Donaldson and an own goal saw the Minstermen to their first competitive win at the LNER Community Stadium, a 4-2 victory over Farsley Celtic.

The football at times, particularly through the combative midfield and down the rapid wings, was impressive and York even had chances to add to the scoreline in the second half after Mackenzie Heaney came on.

But, Watson lamented, in the hunt for more goals, the Minstermen also sometimes left their inexperienced defence exposed.

"The talk to the lads wasn't what you would have expected with a 4-2 win because we have got to do better in different areas," Watson said.

"Before we got the fourth, I thought we were more in control and were managing the game really well. Woodsy, Paddy and Akil were managing the midfield really well.

"We didn't really need to force it and when we did, we kept giving them the ball. Of course you want to see five or six but more than anything, you want a clean sheet.

"I'm disappointed with some of the decision-making with the ball at the end.

"We have got the three points but we do need to brush up on these things or they will come back to bite us.

"At the end, we broke down the sides really well and put some good crosses across the box. Five or six (goals) wouldn't have been out of the question.

"But it's been disappointing this season because we've conceded so many avoidable goals.

"I think the problems (against Farsley) came higher up (than the inexperienced defence) at times with the amount of bodies we committed forward.

"Then the defenders have to make decisions that are foreign to them.

"Look after the ball and make a few more passes - we don't have to score every time we go forward."
