York manager Nigel Worthington hailed his team as they managed to earn a point against Oxford following a lively 0-0 draw at home.
Ryan Jarvis went close for the Minstermen midway through the second half as he raced through one-on-one but his effort was well saved by Oxford's Ryan Clarke.
The stalemate means York have now drawn seven out of their last nine games in all competitions but Worthington now wants his team to finish games off.
"We've done everything today except from finish the game off. The appetite and quality are there and we've competed well over the park and had the chances but we didn't manage to get the goal. We're on the right lines at present and good things are happening.
"We've played all the top four in the league so far and we've held our own against them. It was another solid display from us but we need to get the wins now as other teams are picking up victories. We've drawn seven from our last nine games which sounds good, but we need to win games.
"I can't have asked anymore from the players. We just need to stay solid with the foundations that are in place and the goals will come. We are creating chances and when you do that you have a chance of winning games."
