Dan's the man in a crisis
The ever-willing Daniel Parslow gave an "outstanding" display whilst cast in an unfamiliar left-back role at Gillingham, according to York City manager Gary Mills.

The Minstermen were actually forced to change half of their back-four at the Priestfield Stadium with on loan Blackburn Rovers teenager Jack O'Connell replacing luckless hamstring-victim David McGurk.
"Dan Parslow was outstanding at left-back," Mills told The Press. "I played him there because he's Dan Parslow and I know what I will get from him. His left foot is all right as well and he's got that bit of pace.
"I played left-back despite being right-footed and liked it. It can help you read the game better," he added. "I could have put Jack there, but he wants to be a centre-half. He did well next to Smudge and it's not easy because he's not had a lot of time with us."
