The newly-promoted Minstermen earned a share of the points thanks to a goal from Ashley Chambers four minutes from time, much to the manager's delight.

He said: "I was really pleased for the lads. It's always important to get your first point of the season and I don't think anyone can say we didn't deserve it.

"To come from behind twice shows that we have a lot of spirit and determination and it was important that we did that both for the confidence of the players and the supporters.

"I'm disappointed with the goals we conceded because we thrive on clean sheets and we will look at that but there were a lot of positives for us. We tried to dictate the game against a good side and we will build on that.

"Mentally it was a really important point to get and we can look forward to the weekend now."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
