With all the uncertainty, particularly over the last week, it was a bit more of an unsettling situation than usual for the players. No longer having the goal scoring abilities of Kieffer Moore to call on, or the all round midfield craft that Luke Young provided, has left us with a team that doesn't find goals or wins easy to come by.
However, given the circumstances, this was a potentially difficult game today, with York increasingly desperate for points. So no goals conceded and coming home with a point will do. I'm sure the players, every bit as much as the fans, will be keen to learn what the new owners have in mind, and presumably we'll be able to form a better idea from what is disclosed on Monday.
Well done to the lads and King Kev today.

Arranging an extended loan period for Kieffer Moore would be a great indicator of their intentions for the new owners.
I don't agree it would be a good indicator of their overall intentions as Gi's medium term business model is broadly similar wherever they have been. But I know what you mean.
As I've mentioned already on here, I would expect they will be keen to please in the short term. I'd be surprised if it hasn't already been considered as it will be an obvious fan pleaser or appeaser, whichever way you roll.
We haven't had much good news lately. I wouldn't begrudge any fan short term enjoyment in our backdrop. I won't let it cloud my judgement either having seen what I've seen happen to a now defunct club with Stadia UK and Clarke Osbourne issuing statements every now and again in the years after they ceased to be.
As chelstongull mentioned regarding a previous 'lynching' of Chris Roberts, as soon as he said he was signing a Northern Ireland international next week, the 'lynching' appeared to stop dead in its tracks.
They are intelligent people when it comes to land acquisition. Let the good times roll.
Unlikely that KM will be available to us he started for FG yesterday, in any case and the last thing I expect is Gi/Staduk to start throwing money around. Sure I expect then to attempt to poor oil on troubeld waters in the short term and reckon Phillips will be their front and mouthpiece for the time being to anounce a well scripted statement.
The current team would now be wallowing in the bottom two or three if it wasn't for Brendan Moore heroics yesterday and hes been having to do it on a regular basis. Sure he aint perfect but has been quality and consistent all season and considering how vulnerable the defence looks we have a pretty respectable goals against record. For me player of the season so far. Just think where we would be if all of those pens had got past him.
