York manager Nigel Worthington praised new signing John McCombe as they strolled to a comfortable 4-0 victory over 10-man Plymouth.
Defender McCombe scored at the end of each half, his two goals sandwiched between a Wes Fletcher penalty and Josh Carson's late screamer, as the Minstermen made light work of their hosts, who played for most of the match with 10 men following Neal Trotman's 11th-minute sending-off.
"The one thing we knew about John is that, when the ball goes in the opposition's box, the ball is never far away from him," said Worthington.
"He has a wonderful knack of being around the ball in the box.
"It was a pleasing result; a great three points at a very, very tough place away from home.
"There was a lot of good passing football out there. We used the whole pitch, which was good, and it's nice to score as many goals as we have done. Probably, on a good day, we might have had another two or three."
