Frustrated manager Nigel Worthington won't tolerate the lapses in concentration which have seen York City conceding three late goals in a week.

"Three times in a week, it's not right. We need to look at the concentration" - Nigel Worthington
Marc Richards of Northampton Town became the latest to deny them during
the closing stages following his 90th minute free-kick in the 1-1 draw at Bootham Crescent.

The Minstermen had previously let in injury-time goals against Doncaster Rovers (0-1) in the Capital One Cup and Tranmere Rovers (1-1) on the opening day of their league campaign.

"You can live with a goal, or an equaliser, in the last two minutes once," Worthington told The Press. "It's hard to take a second time. But three times in a week, it's not right. We need to look at the concentration.

"Performance wise, positive thinking and attitude, I can't fault the players. Their performance level over the first three games has been exceptional," he added. "But, for me, we didn't pass the ball as we can do. We were a little bit rash, a little bit hurried and there is no need for that."

Worthington's side can begin to put those faults right when hosting League Two newcomers Cambridge United on Tuesday evening.
