Burrow aims to maintain standards

By Ian Appleyard | 26th November 2018

Captain Jordan Burrow says City must now maintain the standards set during Saturday's FA Trophy victory at Kidderminster Harriers.

The Minstermen progressed to this afternoon's first round draw courtesy of an impressive 3-1 victory in the third qualifying round over the Harriers who are currently fifth in Vanarama National League North.

Burrow said: "Talk is cheap and what we say, sometimes, is irrelevant. It's about going out there and showing it with actions. Going forward, I thought we were excellent (against Kidderminster). They are the standards, especially in the first half, that we need to stick to.

"Every game, the pressure is on - just because it was an FA Trophy game, we didn't treat it any differently," he stressed. "But we know talk is cheap and we need to do it in the league - and that's what we will keep striving to do.

"We will work hard again (in training), like we did last week. We need to get results in the league and that is what we are going to do.

"Kidderminster are a good footballing team and they had a lot of the ball and caused us problems but we defended well. Going forward, especially in the first half, we created a lot of chances and the confidence should be in the lads now."

Burrow, who retained the captain's armband despite the return of defender Joe Tait from a three match ban, took his tally for the season to eight goals with a double in the weekend victory.

"Every striker has goal targets and I just want to play in every minute of every game and do well for the club," he said. "I know it's a cliche - but that's what I will do - I will keep giving everything I have got and, hopefully, it will be enough to keep winning games of football."

Looking ahead to this afternoon's draw, which is live on talkSport2 from 2pm and sees clubs from the Vanarama National League entering the competition, Burrow said: "I think I would like Chesterfield - home or away. I am from there and I was a pro there although I never played for the club.

"It would be nice to go back there - but we will take anybody. We have got confidence in what we can do and, on our day, we can cause anybody problems and that's what we will aim to do."

City's next game, meanwhile, is against FC United of Manchester at Bootham Crescent in Vanarama National League North on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).
