Ferguson: 'Getting into good habits'

23rd July 2019

David Ferguson feels City are getting into good habits as the countdown continues to the start of the new season.

The Minstermen travel to South Shields on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.30pm) seeking a fourth consecutive pre-season victory.

Ferguson, who wore the captain's armband in the second half of Saturday's victory over Scarborough Athletic, said: "We are getting into good habits and winning games. Personally, I feel in good shape and I have come back fitter than I have done in a few previous years."

Primarily a leftback or wingback, Ferguson was employed as a makeshift centreback against Scarborough.

"I had never played in the middle of a back three before," he admitted. "But there are a few niggles and when the Gaffer says 'play there' you try to do a job the best you can. It was nice to see that I can do a job there - but it would be tough playing there for a big league game!"

Sunderland-born Ferguson, 25, feels there is a positive mentality in the City dressing room and a 'good blend' following the summer arrival of players such as Steve McNulty and Dan Maguire.

Looking ahead to Tuesday's game, he said: "I know a good few of their lads - about seven or eight - so I want to get one over them. They are a good footballing side. It will be a good night."
