The Minstermen started their rout inside the first two minutes of Tuesday night's League Two clash at Bootham Crescent through Josh Carson, before Wes Fletcher and a wonderful double from Ryan Brobbel completed their scoring.

Worthington pointed to a special team performance, but highlighted the individual performances put in by his two wingers Carson and Brobbel.

"Josh got us going straight away with a positive run and that's what I ask from him and Ryan," said the City boss.

"If a Brazilian had scored the goal that Ryan scored, it would be shown week in, week out, but unfortunately it's at little old York.

"To start like we did is the ideal situation, but to do it for 90 minutes we know isn't going to happen.

"We started quickly and we knew Scunthorpe were always going to have a go, but the balls into the box and the finishing was top class from us.

"When you're 4-0 up, you can't get lackadaisical and sloppy.

"It's happened twice to me as a player when we were three-up and we've drawn.

"You just need to stay switched on and do the basics because if you don't you're asking for trouble."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
