Defender hails team effort

Right-back Lanre Oyebanjo says the recent marked defensive improvement at York City is down to a collective effort from his colleagues.

"It's been a collective effort and just that extra yard in terms of upping the tempo might have been the difference" - Lanre Oyebanjo
The Minstermen have conceded just five times in their last ten games while maintaining an outstanding six clean-sheets and losing only once.

"We were scoring goals and conceding straight away before, which is never good and very frustrating as a defender," Oyebanjo told The Press. "But we seem to have stopped that and I don't think that's just been down to the back four.

"The whole team have been defending well and pressing up the pitch. We've also had a rub of the green a bit, which we might not have been getting before," he admitted. "It's been a collective effort and just that extra yard in terms of upping the tempo might have been the difference."
