York boss wants killer touch
Billy McEwan

York City manager Billy McEwan has identified the area in which his team can still improve despite back-to-back wins against Northwich and Aldershot.

The Minstermen secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Aldershot on Friday, following on from the three points they snatched in the 90th minute at Northwich on Tuesday thanks to Nathan Peat's brilliant free-kick.

"Our problem is that we can't seem to kill games off after going ahead, and often need to hang on," McEwan said. "We played some good football in the first half, but then we got nervous after the break playing against 10 men, which is often more difficult.

York are now looking good in the Conference in fourth place, nine points behind Oxford, and McEwan knows his young team can only get better as the season goes on.

"But we are a young and inexperienced side, and we will get better as the players learn," he added on BBC.
