'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mills delighted as City maintain run

Manager Gary Mills was understandably jubilant as York City dethroned early league leaders Oxford United 3-1 at Bootham Crescent.

"He's pulled off a couple of great saves in the first half which enabled us to go on and win the game" - Gary Mills
The Minstermen led 2-1 at the interval courtesy of a rapid strike from Michael Coulson and for the third successive game, Ashley Chambers, against very capable opposition who could consider themselves rather unfortunate to be behind at that stage.

York goalkeeper Michael Ingham had already saved a Deane Smalley penalty before his colleague Patrick McLaughlin inadvertently deflected a cross into his own net.

But the Northern Ireland Under-21 international then found the target at the opposite end as the home side regained a greater level of control following the break while on their way to a first Football League home win in over eight-and-a-half years.

"We were 1-0 up and then obviously a penalty and a great save from Ingham," Mills told BBC Radio York. "He's pulled off a couple of great saves in the first half which enabled us to go on and win the game.

"I'm delighted. I've said I thought the first game [of the season] flattered Wycombe," he added. "It was a weird day for us and since then we've shown what we've got with seven points in the last three games."
