Russell Wilcox hails 'perfect' York City display

4 March 2015

York City manager Russell Wilcox has lauded his players following their 3-0 win at Cambridge United on Tuesday.

The Minstermen strolled to their fifth away victory of the season after goals from Wes Fletcher, Michael Coulson and Jake Hyde.

Wilcox's men are now two points above Cheltenham Town in the first of the relegation places, and the 50-year-old wants to see similar performances in their remaining 12 fixtures.

“I thought we were perfect,” he said.

“We got everything spot on tonight and the game plan worked really well.

“We knew they were a big team so it was important to stop them having the opportunities to put the ball into the box.

“It was key we were good without the ball and then to be creative when we had it which we managed to do.

“We are not going to get carried away though after moving up a couple of places because we know where we are and there is a lot of work still to do.

“I do feel that performance has been coming from right back to the Southend United game where we probably created more chances than we did tonight but didn’t have the killer instinct.

“That was the difference tonight because when the opportunities came our way we managed to convert them.

“It’s frustrating we’ve not been able to put in performances like that at home but it is a huge three points and moves us forward to where we want to be.”
