Mills: Credits his players

The Minstermen bossed the first half but failed to take advantage with Matty Blair and Michael Potts failing to convert good chances to hand their side an early advantage.

Keeper Scott Davies somehow turned Blair's effort wide and minutes later Potts should have put York ahead, somehow missing the target from five yards.

"I thought we were excellent," Mills said. "For 90 minutes we've had a good shape about us.

"We played well at Chesterfield and lost, we played well again today and our players were excellent.

"We've come here and got ourselves a clean sheet which I'm delighted about, it's a good point, it should have been all three.

"But if you don't concede you don't lose. All you can do is create chances and get into the position to take those chances.

"We haven't taken some opportunities which have come along, but I'm not going to knock my players because I thought we were excellent.

"I'm proud of the performance they have put in."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
