Away point pleases Worthington

Nigel Worthington was pleased with a 1-1 draw at Burton as York underlined their reputation as League Two's draw specialists.

It was a sixth draw in eight games for the Minstermen as they try to climb away from the relegation zone - and Worthington believes the signs are good.

The Northern Irishman said: "We were very good. We were solid and we competed very well.

"Not many teams come away from Burton with something because they are a strong team. It's a great point away from home.

"Credit to all the players, they stood up to the challenge, competed very well and broke quickly at times.

"We've got to keep working hard, keep believing, keep playing and look forward to Oxford next week in a positive frame of mind.

"It's a team effort and it is about being resilient, being hard to beat, staying that way then getting back to where we were two or three weeks ago scoring twos and threes and fours.

"There's been a lot of draws and we've got to try and change those into wins.

"Our shape is good, the players are very positive and they're carrying out the jobs they're supposed to do. While we're doing that, we won't be far away."

York went ahead in the 64th minute when substitute Michael Coulson's cross skidded in off the head of Burton defender Shane Cansdell-Sherriff.

But Albion were level eight minutes later when Billy Kee latched onto Damien McCrory's ball into the box and rifled a low shot just inside a post from 10 yards out.
