York City boss Jackie McNamara hopeful of leading club to safety



Jackie McMamara is on the up with York City after his side climbed out of the League Two relegation zone for the first time in six weeks.

A fruitful run of three victories in four matches, including Tuesday’s 2-0 win at home to Exeter City, has seen the Minstermen move two points clear of the bottom two.

McNamara, who was appointed in November after being axed at Dundee United, also celebrated the team earning a clean sheet in the league for the first time in five months.

McNamara said: “It all looks a bit healthier, but I still want to catch the teams above us like Hartlepool and Stevenage now.

“I’m absolutely delighted with the three points, the two goals and a clean sheet.”
