Goals from Junior Brown and a late strike from Steven Gillespie were enough to seal three points and keep the Cod Army in the promotion places.

But Mellon admitted: "York never seem to disappoint us. We knew it was always going to be a very difficult game.

"They came out of the traps very well but we defended well and my goalkeeper has made a couple of great saves.

"You expect that when you come to York though, and you would expect that if you came to Fleetwood. We rode that out and then scored a fantastic goal.

"I'm delighted with the overall performance from my team because it's a hard place to come. We hit the post and we had a couple of one-on-ones which we may have done better with but I can't complain with the result here at all."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
