Andy Bond: "I've hit a few like that in my time"

Match winner Andy Bond is feeling confident after a 1-0 win over Brackley gave City a dream start to the season with three games unbeaten in the National League North.

The result also saw the Minstermen climb to the top of the table for the first time since 2006.

Speaking after the victory, Bond said: “We weren’t at our best, but we grinded out the result and a win’s a win.

“The atmosphere is good, especially when you win a game and you know there is more to come so that’s even better – when we are on top form, we will be a force to be reckoned with.”

Aside from the victory, it was a frustrating afternoon for York against a defensive Brackley side which mirrored the setup of Farsley Celtic on Tuesday night.

But a crucial strike by Bond from 30-yards broke the deadlock on 56 minutes and turned out to be the decisive goal in the fixture.

Bond added: “With the squad we’ve got teams are going to come and sit back, it’s down to us to break them down.

“But it’s another clean sheet for us and we will build on that Tuesday.

“It’s still early days after three games, we’ve got games coming thick and fast – it’s important to kick on and keep winning.”

The summer signing also believes he can add more to his tally this season, looking to beat his 6 goals for AFC Fylde in the National League last term.

He added: “I’ve hit a few like that in my time, it’s come to me in some space and I’ve hit it in the bottom corner – I’d be silly not to shoot and I’ll take them all day.”
