York City boss Nigel Worthington was pulling absolutely no punches following the latest 2-2 draw against Cambridge United at Bootham Crescent.
|“Part of my job is making decisions and I am not afraid to make decisions” – Nigel Worthington|
Worthington hauled off both goalkeeper Jason Mooney and centre-back John McCombe at half-time and was rewarded as the home side fought back from two goals down for a third successive draw.
Highly-rated strikers Jake Hyde and Wes Fletcher were each on target for the Minstermen, whose attacking performance once again thrilled supporters despite their ongoing concerns at the current defensive situation.
“It was straight-forward. I had to make a change,” Worthington told The Press. “When you are in this game, it is a hard game. He [Mooney] is one of two keepers so when the opportunity comes again he has got to go and take it.
“Part of my job is making decisions and I am not afraid to make decisions if I think it is right for the team. I thought he looked very nervous,” he continued. “There is a lot of big players there – he is big himself – and he’s really got to believe in himself. He’s a good keeper, there is no doubt about that, but you have to make it happen.”
