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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
