DAVID WEBB has assured supporters that he does ‘understand their frustration’, after York City slid to 18th in the Vanarama National League table following defeat to Solihull Moors.

York did originally lead through Shaq Forde, before two goals in the space of two minutes from Joe Sbarra and Andrew Dallas saw the Moors take the advantage.

Olly Dyson quickly drew the scores level again, before ex-York man Mark Beck powered home a header in the 82nd minute to gift Neal Ardley’s side all three points.

Supporters made their feelings towards Webb and majority owner Glen Henderson well-known, with chants for the pair to leave the club and booing that Webb couldn’t ignore.

“I understand their frustrations because if any manager is in a bad situation and doesn’t win football games you are under pressure.” Webb explained.

“It’s up and down the country, I get it.

“So I get their frustrations, we were just disappointed we couldn’t get a win tonight because we felt coming into the first half we could do it.

“We’re here to win football games and if we don’t win football games then we have got to take criticism.

“It’s part of life, any football manager would tell you that and I’m no different.

“The fans are going to voice their frustartions if we lose and obviously the position we are in at the minute. So of course, I am going to be upset.

Webb won’t have the opportunity to rectify York’s dismal league position next weekend, as the Minstermen return to Essex to face Southend United for the second time in seven days in the Isuzu FA Trophy fifth round.

“We’ve got to keep going, we have got to keep going.” Webb rallied.

“We’ve definitely got enough in the squad and we’re starting to score, like the two goals tonight, but we’ve got to stop conceding soft goals.

“To be honest it would be better if we had another league game so we can put it right really quick. Just to try and get the points.

“If we can win on Saturday and get ourselves through to the next stages of the FA Trophy then at least it gives us a bit of momentum.”
