'If It's Football, It's Vital'

We're still in transition - Worthington

York City manager Nigel Worthington concedes his side are still in transition as they prepare to face League Two leaders Oxford United this weekend.

"After 18 months in the League, we are in a transitional period and it's a gradual thing" - Nigel Worthington
The Minstermen have won only four times in twenty-four attempts in all competitions this season and once again face the prospect of another relegation fight if there isn't a marked improvement.

Following the arrival of the U's tomorrow, York have successive away trips to fellow strugglers Accrington Stanley and Bury over Christmas. Meanwhile, both lowly Northampton Town (A) and Bristol Rovers (H) are also on their immediate horizon in the New Year.

"After 18 months in the League, we are in a transitional period and it's a gradual thing," Worthington told The Press. "We are learning, adjusting, adding to and acclimatising but everybody knows football is ruthless and does not wait for anybody.

"We would like more points than we have got but it's a fine line and we have just got to turn those draws into wins," he added. "We want to get into a healthy position and take the pressure off towards the end of the season."
