York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:
"A lot of the game I was very pleased, we competed well.
"The thing that disappointed me most was for 20 minutes of the game we never started. We were too far off and they're a Championship side. If you let good players play they will take advantage.
"After 20 minutes we started to do what we can do and we were a force in the game.
"Up until the last 15 minutes when we started to get stretched with the goals I was very pleased. We competed well. Disappointed with four goals put against us but we stuck at it and that's very important."
