York City boss Nigel Worthington reckons his side can only benefit from their latest draw at promoted Scunthorpe United.

"In the second half we were back to the resilience, character and endeavour I expect" - Nigel Worthington
The Minstermen were required to battle back from 2-0 down in order to preserve their current unbeaten record and extend it to an astonishing seventeen games.

"I sensed before the game that we
weren't mentally right and the first half showed us what happens when that is the case," Worthington told BBC Radio York. "We we weren't ready for the game. The mental side of things will be key on Saturday and we will be ready.

"It was a nice little wake-up call because in the second half we were back to the resilience, character and endeavour I expect," he added.

York City produced another well-below par performance in a 1-1 draw with a decent Kidderminster Harriers side at Bootham Crescent and continue to slip further behind the leaders.

Skipper Ryan Croasdale had earned the visitors a deserved advantage midway through the opening half, but leading goalscorer Jon Parkin's superb free-kick cancelled it out before the interval.
