York boss Gary Mills has slammed the boo-boys who jeered Ashley Chambers when he was substituted during the home defeat to AFC Wimbledon.
Striker Chambers, 22, who has scored six goals in 22 appearances for the Minstermen this season, was replaced by Jamie Reed with 25 minutes left as York turned in a rare poor display to lose 3-0.
"What gets to me is Ashley Chambers gets booed off - clapped off, sorry - as he was brought off," fumed Mills in the wake of Saturday's 2-2 draw at Port Vale. "I find that amazing; a lad who's worked so hard for two years to help play a major part in getting this club back to where it is.
"It astounds me that he actually gets clapped off, a lad who everybody knows anyway finds it hard all through his career to have that confidence.
"He scored a goal at Wembley in the play-off final last season to enable us to even be sitting here and playing the likes of Port Vale - he needs applauding when he's on the field.
"I think it's disgraceful, actually. I know how hard it's been to get the club here in two years, this hasn't come easy and the fact we had a poor performance that day - in my opinion the only poor performance this season - makes it hard to understand."
