York City full-back Marvin McCoy admitted he would have settled for a point against Stevenage at the weekend.

The visitors appeared well in charge after surging into an early two-goal lead at the Lamex Stadium.
However, Stevenage fought back level after the break despite already having been reduced to ten-men when skipper Andy Bond was dismissed.
But McCoy then earned his side a penalty with just fifteen minutes remaining and Wes Fletcher added his second goal of the game – that following Michael Coulson earlier opening his account.
“At 2-2, all I was thinking was just don’t lose,” McCoy told The Press. “When you are 2-0 up and the opposition come back to draw level, that’s what’s going through your mind but, credit to the boys, we got the win and, overall, we deserved it.
“Obviously, when you have a two-goal lead, you want to hold on to that and kept a clean sheet but they are a tough and resilient side, so it was good to get the three points.”
