York City boss Nigel Worthington would like nothing better than to permanently sign on loan Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Nick Pope.

"He would be playing first-team football if he came here and I think we could add value to him" - Nigel Worthington
The 21-year-old kept a fifth successive clean-sheet against Torquay United and his eleventh in sixteen attempts this year as his side moved back into play-off contention courtesy of fellow loanee Will Hayhurst's early goal.

"Nick is a player I would love to sign for this football club," Worthington admitted to The Press. "He would be playing first-team football if he came here and I think we could add value to him for this football club."

Worthington also praised his full-back combination of man-of-the-match Lanre Oyebanjo and Ben Davies, who helped extend the Minstermen's current unbeaten run to ten games - eight of which have been won.

"Lanre is as good a full-back as you can get on his day and I think he has found a good level of consistency this season," he added. "Ben Davies, from a manager's point of view, is your first name on the team-sheet because he's been so consistent and that's phenomenal for a young lad of 18."

York now have a couple of massive forthcoming games against promotion rivals Burton Albion (H) and Rochdale (A), and must also still travel to both Oxford United and Scunthorpe United before the end of the season.
