Mills staying upbeat

23 September 2012

York boss Gary Mills was in positive mood despite seeing his side fail to win for the fourth successive league game in the 0-0 draw with Cheltenham.

In a match with few clear cut chances, the closest the Minstermen came to scoring was through Lee Bullock but Scott Brown more than up to the task. Mills felt his side should have won the game but in the end was happy to take a point.

"I thought we edged it and I thought it was a game for us to win," he said. "I think if we had a little extra in the last third then we could have won it. We had a couple of good chances with Bully (Lee Bullock) probably having the best when he came on."

He added: "We're tough to beat, it's another point and we should have won it so they're the positives. I thought we had the better of the game, and I thought they scored at the end so they'll be disappointed."

Cheltenham manager Mark Yates was pleased to take a point away from Bootham Crescent as his side stretched their unbeaten run on the road to four games.

The Robins could have quite easily stolen the points but Kaid Mohamed struck the bar with his first touch of the ball.

"I'm happy with a point, we're now unbeaten in four on the road so you have to be happy," said Yates.

"It wasn't as free flowing as what I would have wanted but we've picked up four points since last Saturday. We worked extremely hard and I feel we had the better chances to win a tight game.

"We've now had a couple of clean sheets and that's what we want. Benno's (Alan Bennett) come in and he was outstanding in the second half when he needed to be.

"We've just got to keep working hard and then the breaks will start going for us."
