McNa­mara sets un­wanted record

The Herald - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

JACKIE McNA­MARA has set two un­wanted records af­ter a calami­tous start as York City boss – his side have equalled their worst los­ing run and had their biggest home de­feat for 58 years.

The for­mer Dundee United and Partick This­tle boss opted to hand de­buts to four un­der 21-year-olds on Satur­day but it back­fired as Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley romped to a 5-1 win.

York were de­stroyed 6-0 by Portsmouth in mid­week and they are now one game away from their worst ever run in their his­tory – with McNa­mara in charge of six of those eight de­feats on the spin.

How­ever, McNa­mara has vowed to get it right in time for their next game in two weeks against Bris­tol Rovers.

He said: “I’ve got two weeks to put my stamp on things. I know I’ve got a big job on, but I’m de­ter­mined to put things right.”
