York City manager Gary Mills called his team "superb" after beating Grimsby to progress into the FA Trophy semi-final.

Midfielder Scott Kerr scored the only goal of the game with seven minutes remaining to put York into the draw.

Mills told BBC Radio York: "The semi-final of the Trophy. It feels good doesn't it? It's fantastic.

"Of course they were going to put us under a little bit of pressure at times but I thought we coped with it well. We deserved to go through, I believe."

'It feels good' - York boss Mills

He added: "We said Scott Kerr would never score this season. He's got on the end of a header and I'm delighted for him.

"He's been fantastic for us this season and he'll go home and have a lovely weekend knowing that he scored the goal to put us through to the semi-final."

Mills made some changes to the side that lost in Blue Square Bet Premier to Gateshead in midweek and he said the reaction from his players was exceptional.

"The response from losing Wednesday night, there was no fear. It just proves we lose a game and it's not the end of the world.

"We want to go and achieve things. If we're good enough to go and achieve things, if we lose, we can't worry about it. I thought we were superb today."
