ADAM HINSHELWOOD was brimming with pride after a spirited 2-1 victory over Vanarama National League champions Chesterfield.

York City came from behind after Joe Quigley’s early opener, with strikes from Maz Kouhyar and Dipo Akinyemi providing Hinshelwood with his third consecutive win.

The three points takes York to 16th in the National League table, five points clear of Boreham Wood in the drop zone, although Hinshelwood wouldn’t know having not yet checked the table.

“I haven’t looked yet, I tend not to do it until the next couple of days as I try to enjoy the moment,” Hinshelwood admitted.

“The first couple of weeks were really tough, but I’ve loved every minute of the last few weeks, it’s been brilliant.

“We got a real look at what we can achieve at this club, we are very proud.

“The fans erupted, they got behind us and put that ball into the back of the net, that’s what you want sometimes.

“We want to experience that more often as a club, and it’s down to us to provide that on the pitch.

“We came up against an excellent team today and I’ve just said to the boys that we’re not in a position where we can give up at any minute.

“I thought that in the first-half, the occasion got to one or two and we want this to be the norm at this club, with his kind of crowd.

“We need players to relish those atmospheres, and in the second-half we did that a lot better.

“The first time since our resurgence that we’ve gone behind, we stuck together and in the second-half we got the two goals.

“I thought that if we could score early on, then the celebrations that we had might come into effect a little bit.”

Hinshelwood also handed out individual credit to his players, whose work rate and belief pleased the City boss.

“Full credit to the players, they kept going, stuck together and showed a lot of belief.

“We defended with more passion in the second-half and we’ve done that over the last three games brilliantly.

“Rory (Watson) again, he didn’t get his clean sheet today, but some vital saves at some vital times.

“The finish from Maz was excellent, Dipo’s confidence was high after last week and when he gets one-on-one he becomes a real threat at his level.

“We want him to produce those moments on a more regular basis, I said to him that we’ve got seven games left and he needs to be our main man and our main talisman.

“I wanted to put that pressure on him, and know he’s got two good goals.”

Hinshelwood also provided an early update on Thierry Latty-Fairweather, who was unfortunately substituted off of the pitch in first-half stoppage time on a stretcher.

Hinshelwood explained: “He was feeling pain and uncomfort in his back, so the right precautions have been taken by the medical staff.

“He’ll go for the relevant x-rays and scans, we’ll see the extent of the damage and we’re hoping it’s nothing too serious.

“At this stage it is too early to say.”
