York City- In deep shit

Last updated : 02 January 2003 By Luke Thornhill

"I want people to know exactly what is going on at this club behind the scenes, because our players just do not know who is coming or going," blasted Dolan after his side's 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Scunthorpe United yesterday saw them drop out of the playoff positions.

"All right they make mistakes and that sort of thing and our defending was not too good today against a good Scunthorpe side who are difficult opponents.

"But the players were stuck in a room for five hours yesterday with solicitors for the PFA and solicitors for the administrators now in at this club.

"It's a scandalous preperation for a football match. We should have been relaxed and rested, instead they have had to sit there waiting to sign a bit of paper which should have been done in five minutes.

"I want people to know what our players are going throughm they didn't know at 3PM yesterday whether they were even going to take the field against Scunthorpe.

"We don't know what is going to happen. We are professionals trying to prepare properly for games, but we are just unable to do it."
