Harrogate Town

Harrogate Town manager Simon Weaver praised a good team performance after their 1-0 Blue Square Bet North win at Gainsborough Trinity.

Robbie Youhill's second-half winner - only his second goal for the club - secured the points for Harrogate.

"We've had a good record here the last three years," said boss Simon Weaver.

"We knew it was going to be difficult but I thought when I saw the teams, there's no reason to play with fear," Weaver told BBC Radio York.

"It was a game for Robbie Youhill.

We deserved the points - Weaver

"The pitch was being a bit rutted up because of weather conditions and it was blowing a gale. It wasn't really a winger's paradise out there and things weren't quite working out for him.

"But it just fell his way. And it was a very good finish indeed."

Victory moves Harrogate up to 16th in the table while Gainsborough remain in sixth.

"Gainsborough are flying," said Weaver. "They've turned it around and the manager's got to take a lot of credit for injecting that bit of something different. He's got the results and they've got a lot more results than us.

"But we were really positive from the start. We can defend as a unit now. And I'm delighted to win for a few reasons."
