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."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
