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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
