Worthy pleased with point

Nigel Worthington was pleased with a point but felt his York side could have taken all three following a 0-0 draw with Cheltenham.

The Minstermen created a number of openings throughout the game but Cheltenham had goalkeeper Scott Brown to thank for saves from Michael Coulson and Josh Carson.

Worthington is now hoping his team can build on their past two performances as they bid to move up the league table.

"I thought the players put in a real shift and we were really positive from the first whistle. We tried to do the right things and we got the ball in the box, but on a good day we would probably come away with all three points. It was a good 0-0 draw.

"The big thing that pleased me was the application of the players. It's important to start on the front foot and the clean sheet delighted me. If we can add to our performances from the past two games, and if we can get a result at Plymouth, we'll be on a good run.

"It was a solid team performance and the players stepped up and took responsibility. We've 15 games left and the focus is towards the finish line and to gain as many points as possible so we can finish in a healthy position."
