Video: We must react - Newton

Skipper Sean Newton insists York City must move on quickly from their massive weekend disappointment.

The Minstermen suffered a 2-0 defeat to current leaders Harrogate Town and already find themselves eleven points behind their neighbours after the opening dozen games of the season.

Newton thus endured a miserable twenty-ninth birthday at the CNG Stadium, but firmly believes his colleagues must now take maximum points from their next couple of league games against fellow promotion hopefuls Brackley Town and Salford City.

Prior to those, however, they have a weekend visit to the lower-ranked South Shields in the FA Cup third qualifying round.

"It's football, you've got to react," Newton told BBC Radio York. "When we've lost in the past or drew games we should have won, we've reacted really well in the league.

"There's no different now. We've got to turn up as if, I know it sounds terrible at this moment in time and people might take it the wrong way, but when it comes to getting ready for Saturday, we've literally got to forget about this.

"We've got to look at the things we should have done better in terms of stopping the goals," he added. "Then we've got to move on quickly and make sure we get a result on Saturday. Stay in the FA Cup - but the priority's the league. We've got Brackley and Salford the next two league games and for me we need six points, no doubt about it."
