Video: Reserve players pressing claims

Defensive coach Sean Gregan believes some of the club's fringe players have given manager Martin Gray something to think about following the Reserves' 1-1 draw with Rotherham United at Bootham Crescent.

Gregan took charge of proceedings and witnessed the Minstermen trailing after recently fit-again forward Louis Almond had a penalty saved on the half-hour by Laurence Bilboe.

Kuda Muskwe then netted for their visitors immediately prior to the break, although it was later cancelled out by City's on loan striker Raul Correia.

"Louis Almond's been out a long time and Pars [Daniel Parslow] has not played a lot," Gregan told York's official YouTube channel. "So it's important they all came through with no injuries and got minutes - and hopefully give the manager something to think about for selection at the weekend.

"I don't think they've done themselves any harm," he continued. "I think the performance, let alone the result on Saturday, was unacceptable. It wasn't good enough. It's a chance for lads who are out of the team to stake a claim. The manager was here and hopefully they've given him something to think about."
