York City manager Gary Mills has challenged midfielder Michael Potts to continue producing the goods if he wants to come off the transfer list.

The 21-year-old former Blackburn Rovers schemer scored twice in only his third league start for the club during their 3-2 weekend victory at Rochdale.
However, Potts was only included in the side following the early recall of on loan Peterborough United midfielder Danny Kearns last week.
“We’ve not kept the ball as well as I would have liked recently and I know Pottsy will do that,” Mills told The Press. “I wanted him to show me what a player he can be and he certainly took that chance. I’ve always known he’s my type of player who can play how I like my teams to play.
“He lacks that yard of pace, which is to his detriment a little bit, but he will be mentally and physically sharper after Saturday’s game,” he added. “It’s one game though and he’s got to continue doing what he’s done if I decide to play him in the next match.”
