DAVID McDermott was having an X-ray on a foot injury following York City’s 1-1 pre-season friendly draw at Garforth Town.

The midfielder fell awkwardly towards the end of the first half, with no-one around him, and Minstermen manager Gary Mills revealed a trip to hospital would be needed to find out the extent of the damage.

“He’s going to have an X-ray,” he said. “He fell awkwardly and it’s sore at the moment. The pitch wasn’t the best. He’s gone over on the ankle – it’s actually the top of the foot.”

Mills was satisfied with his side’s first half display at City’s Evo-Stik League opponents but admitted the second half was “poor”, despite the Minstermen looking to be coasting along following Jason Walker’s goal at the end of the first-half.

A late goal from David Brown ended his hopes of winning every game in the pre-season programme.

“Sometimes these games are difficult because we were coasting along but the pace dropped and it became sloppy,” he added.

“We have had chances and we haven’t taken them.

“We talk about being ruthless and that (failing to convert chances) has cost us. We end up drawing a game because they have scored late on with players out of position and rushing to take things.

“These games are what they are. If we can have flaws, these games are to find them out.”
