Recent signing John McGrath says York City manager Gary Mills has the full support of his squad as they bid to turn around their recent bad run.

"Losing will have hurt him as much as it did any York City player or fan" - John McGrath
The Minstermen are currently a miserable eight games without a victory and just six points above the relegation zone. That prompted a response from the club's board of directors earlier this week that they were expecting an immediate change in fortunes, starting this weekend for the trip to Oxford United.

McGrath, 32, already knows Mills particularly well having served under his leadership before at former club Tamworth and is convinced he is exactly the man to do precisely that. The pair were recently reunited after the combative Irish midfielder arrived on a month's loan from Burton Albion.

"There's no doubt the gaffer is the right man for the job and he has the backing of all the lads," McGrath told The Press. "He's one of the main reasons I came here. He's a great bloke who's very enthusiastic and losing will have hurt him as much as it did any York City player or fan on Saturday.

"He wears his heart on his sleeve and what the manager did last season to get York those two trophies was great," he added. "I know the fans are a bit upset and disappointed after the highs of last season but this is a hard division with some massive clubs, even ex-Premier League ones in it, and to finish third-bottom and stay up would represent a great season. If everybody sticks together, we should be okay."
