York City boss Nigel Worthington continues to back goalkeeper Michael Ingham despite another mistake at the weekend.
|“I don’t think Michael’s mental strength is an issue” – Nigel Worthington|
The 34-year-old dropped a routine cross that resulted in a goal during the 3-2 home defeat to Southend United.
Former Northern Ireland international Ingham had also been at fault on his
recent comeback at Exeter City, but has since kept clean-sheets against both Luton Town and Wycombe Wanderers.
“I know we were all spoiled by Nick Pope coming in during the second half of last season but everybody’s entitled to make a mistake. If you make two mistakes, then the spotlight really falls on you,” Worthington told The Press. “But they are genuine, honest mistakes, so we have to live with that, work on things and give him belief.
“I don’t think Michael’s mental strength is an issue, because the older you get, the stronger you get,” he added. “So he has got my backing and it’s onwards and upwards and, hopefully, we will go to Dagenham and get a good result.”
