Watson's post-match verdict

7th April 2019

Manager Steve Watson reflects on Saturday's 1-0 victory over Southport at Bootham Crescent.

"I was delighted with three points but we have to play better," he said. "It's a clean sheet and two teenagers made their debuts and did well - so there are a lot of positives - but the way we played in the second half was disappointing. It was potentially one of those days where we could have put a team to the sword but we wasted a number of chances."

Commenting on the performances of goalkeeper Ryan Whitley and defender Jasper Moon on senior debuts, Watson said: "Ryan did virtually everything right. He made good decisions for someone his age (19) and took the pressure off the defence. He can be really pleased with his debut.

"When lads come in from Under-23s football and are not used to this league, the physical side can be a concern - but, physically, Jasper (18) has coped pretty well! He looked mobile and confident on the ball."
