York City boss Gary Mills says he is not taking Nuneaton for granted ahead of their FA Trophy tie.
Despite being bottom of the National League Mills’s side have been on a good run of form as of late and are aiming for another trip to Wembley after winning the competition during the 2011-12 season.
Mills first of all noted he is not just focusing on Nuneaton’s last FA Trophy victory against a fellow National League side.
He said “They won 6-1 against Guiseley, then lost 4-0, 4-0, so work that one out, if you study teams on just specific results they can frighten you one game, then the next you think there is no problem, I want to concentrate on us.”
With memories of the 2011-12 season still in place, Mills knows that this is a trophy they want to aim to win again.
“I think it’s a good competition, to get to a major final, an opportunity, we are in the last 16, getting to the quarter-final would be great, we can build on it and take it into our next league game afterwards.”
City can go 5 unbeaten away from home, after going over a year without winning in away matches, Mills is pleased with their progression.
“It builds confidence, the reason we have gone 4 unbeaten away, with a squad that can do that, is always building whether home or away and we need to keep on building.”
He also revealed there had been interest in Vadaine Oliver, but he is commited to the club which is a boost to the Minstermen.
