Nigel Worthington wasn't too despondent despite the late equaliser for Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.

"We need to learn to manage the game and see it through to the final whistle" - Nigel Worthington
The Minstermen appeared set to take maximum points courtesy of Keith Lowe's second-half header but substitute James Rowe equalised deep into injury-time.

"We are disappointed to have given a goal away so late in the game," Worthington told SkySports. "But we would have probably taken a point before the game considering Tranmere have just come down from League One.

"When you are so close to all three points and you have to settle for one then it is frustrating but that's life - you have to deal with it," he added. "There are a lot of positives for us to take away from the game, but we need to learn to manage the game and see it through to the final whistle.

"We need to retain possession better but that is something we can work from. This game is all about learning and we will learn from the goal we gave away late on."

Meanwhile, Worthington revealed striker Wes Fletcher should be back in action in the next ten days.

York City v Worcester City

York City's most recent FA Trophy campaign ended memorably on the highest of highs and a Wembley final victory against Newport County in May 2012.

In stark contrast this latest one discovers the club at probably the lowest-ever point in its far too often turbulent history; certainly in terms of current league standing, and with a record-equalling eighteen games without a victory thrown in for good measure.
