Mills blasts 'second-best' City

York City manager Gary Mills admitted his side got exactly what they deserved from Plymouth Argyle - absolutely nothing!

"If you are second best to everything, like we were, then we are going to end up losing games" - Gary Mills
The Pilgrims were always the better of two really struggling sides and eventually claimed their first win in ten games courtesy of a Jamal Fyfield own goal and a last-minute second from substitute Nick Chadwick.

In truth the faltering visitors were absolutely woeful on the day and barely managed a realistic effort towards the opposition goal throughout the duration of a very substandard contest, prompting claims in the south-west media that 'York were, by some distance the worst team, seen at Home Park this season.'

On this occasion Mills couldn't really disagree with that: "We were second best to everything from start to finish," he conceded to BBC Radio York. "They were winning more second balls virtually for the 90 minutes, obviously that was disappointing.

"If you are not going to win second balls and are second best to everything, like we were, then we are going to end up losing games. Plymouth thoroughly deserved the three points and we got what we got: absolutely nothing.

"It's basic. We passed the ball very well last week but we got the ball in the first place to enable us to play," Mills added. "Today was totally different, they were in our faces from the word go and didn't allow us to pass the ball."

The Minstermen now have crucial home games over successive weekends against another of the division's major stragglers, Bristol Rovers, followed by the arrival of clear league-leaders Gillingham.
