New central defender John McCombe is determined to hold onto his starting place at York City.

"Hopefully, I can stay in the team because I just want to be playing every week" - John McCombe
The 28-year-old scored his first goals for the club in yesterday's fabulous 4-0 victory at Plymouth Argyle to hoist the rampant visitors into the top half of the table.

McCombe has now started the last four games after club stalwart David McGurk was recently forced to return to the sidelines with a back injury.

"I am just pleased to be playing after my time at Mansfield and I am enjoying my football again," McCombe told The Press ahead of the visit to Devon. "That was something I missed at Mansfield and the main reason I came to York was to try to get a regular place and, hopefully, I can stay in the team because I just want to be playing every week.

"There are a lot of good players here, though, so you know you have to keep performing week in, week out to stay in the team."
