York City boss Gary Mills certainly won't be releasing rejuvenated midfielder Michael Potts during the January transfer window.

"If somebody rang me up and wanted Pottsy today, I would not let them have him" - Gary Mills
The 21-year-old has often appeared surplus to requirements since arriving from Blackburn Rovers eighteen months ago and while managing only a couple of starts at Bootham Crescent.

Following his lack of opportunities he was subsequently placed on the transfer list, until receiving a surprise call-up for the visit to Rochdale - where he scored twice in 3-2 victory at the beginning of last month. Since then he has been a regular fixture in the side over the past half-dozen games.

"If somebody rang me up and wanted Pottsy today, I would not let them have him," Mills told The Press. "He's such a good professional and a good lad to have around the club.

"He knew he had to do better and was waiting for that opportunity," he added. "He does not want to let that go now and I've been really pleased with his performances."

Shocking City roll over in Crescent finale

A 4-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers was hardly an appropriate way to mark what for all intents and purposes will be York City's last-ever Football League fixture at Bootham Crescent.

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.
