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."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
