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.

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."
