Manager Gary Mills was left reflecting on more dreadful defending as York City fell to a third defeat in four games against struggling Barnet at Bootham Crescent.

"We're not winning football matches, it's another team below us that have just gone and beat us" - Gary Mills
The Minstermen failed to build upon the massive bonus of a seventh-minute own-goal from David Stephens as their visitors eventually emerged 2-1 winners despite ending the game with only nine men following a late collision

York are now without a win in eight games and currently only seven points above the drop-zone, with all their main rivals having at least one game in hand.

"It's another game we've lost," Mills told BBC Radio York. "We're not winning football matches, it's another team below us that have just gone and beat us so it's a big blow.

"We've been giving goals away for quite a few games now for quite a few weeks," he continued. "We haven't scored in abundance, we know that's a problem as well. But if you're going to concede like goals like we're conceding at this moment in time, it's just going to make it very very difficult."
