Foyle acclaims 'outstanding' York

Delighted York City manager Martin Foyle labelled his side as 'outstanding' in their play-off semi-final second-leg victory at Luton Town. Defending a slender 1-0 advantage from the first game, York refused to sit back on their lead and instead remained positive throughout. And they were rewarded when Chris Carruthers doubled their overall tally in the tie two minutes into the second-half. "We were outstanding," Foyle told BBC Sport. "The good thing is when we did get the goal we changed around straight away and went 4-5-1 and they did exactly what I wanted them to do on the training pitch."The end of the contest was marred though after York's celebrating players came under attack from Luton supporters, who proceeded to block off the tunnel and shower them with missiles after they were forced to retreat onto the terraces."I can't comment on that, hopefully the authorities will deal with it, it's nothing to do with me," said Foyle. "I was just worried about my players' safety. Fair play to the stewards, there wasn't many of them but they did the job and got them out through the police room."Richard Brodie got smacked on the head with a coin but it might wake him up. But other than that we're okay," he added."But it was quite scary, I haven't seen that for a long time in football."
