York City boss Gary Mills had admitted to already learning plenty since returning the club back to its rightful place in the Football League.

"I am going to stick with my principles about how I want the game to be played" - Gary Mills
The Minstermen are currently only just below mid-table approaching the midway point of the season, but still comfortably within reach of the play-offs following a rather mixed campaign to date - although their seven league victories still outranks the number of defeats.

Once again York have continued to demonstrate greater ability on the road while claiming four more points on their travels than in front of their own supporters - and those alongside a positive goal-difference. Indeed York have already lost twice as many games at home.

However, Mills remains convinced his side remain on the right lines. And he stressed they will continue to adopt his favoured style and concentrate on playing football as he maintains it should be.

"I have learned in the first half of the season where I feel we have to strengthen, what type of players we need to get out of this League," Mills told The Press. "That's our aim. We are hoping we can do it this season but if we don't I'm hoping we can do it next season.

"I honestly don't think we are a million miles off but there is always room for improvement," he added. "And when we get out of this League it will be by playing our way out. I am not going to change my style. I am going to stick with my principles about how I want the game to be played."

Audio: Fear was big factor - McNamara

Manager Jackie McNamara felt that fear and a lack of confidence were major factors behind York City's latest 4-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers.

No pride before ultimate fall

York City slumped embarrassingly to the bottom of the table following a dreadful 4-1 home defeat to Bristol Rovers in what will probably be the last-ever Football League fixture at Bootham Crescent.

Billy Bodin scored a goal in each half and Jermaine Easter added another before a lone 81st minute reply from substitute Kenny McEvoy; although there was still enough time remaining for Lee Mansell to give the scoreline a more realistic look.
