York City striker Jake Hyde is determined to hold onto his starting place at Bootham Crescent.

“You wouldn’t be a very good professional if you were happy sat on the bench” – Jake Hyde

The 24-year-old was finally paired
alongside chief marksman Wes Fletcher for the weekend 3-2 home defeat to Southend United following a difficult time since arriving from Barnet in the summer.

Hyde is still to complete the full ninety minutes for his new club and was named amongst their substitutes for the previous four games.

“It’s been very frustrating and annoying,” he told The Press. “You wouldn’t be a very good professional if you were happy sat on the bench, but you just have to bide your time, bite your lip and wait for your chance.

“That’s down to me. I’ve got to take my opportunity now and, fingers crossed, I can keep improving,” Hyde continued. “Nobody wants to be on that bench but it’s the manager’s decision and you have to take it in your stride.”
