Manager Gary Mills was full of praise for his ten-man York City team despite exiting the FA Cup at AFC Wimbledon.

"I am gutted and proud of them because they gave me and the football club everything" - Gary Mills
The Minstermen were comfortably the better side but eventually paid for having midfielder Scott Kerr sent-off for a second bookable offence just after the half-hour.

However, the visitors bravely shook off their numerical disadvantage as substitute Jamie Reed scored at the end of both normal and extra-time in an eventual 4-3 defeat at Kingsmeadow.

York also hit the woodwork three times through Danny Kearns, Matty Blair and Ashley Chambers, while Jason Walker had an effort cleared off the line while his side were also denied at least one clear penalty.

"We were excellent from the word go. It could have been 3-0 before we even scored and 4-1 or 5-1 at half-time," Mills told The Press. "We got what we deserved on Saturday but we didn't in this game. Hopefully, though, this performance proved Saturday was just a one-off because I thought the players were unbelievable last night.

"I am gutted and proud of them because they gave me and the football club everything," he added. "I'm also gutted to be out of the FA Cup because everybody wants a good run in the competition."

Mills' attention must now switch to successive away games in the league against high-flying Port Vale and Rochdale over the coming week.
