Ingham has score to settle with Oxford United

Banbury Cake: Michael Ingham (in green) lost at Wembley in 2010 Michael Ingham (in green) lost at Wembley in 2010

MICHAEL Ingham is looking to get one over Oxford United tomorrow after being part of the York City side which lost in the play-off final at Wembley in 2010.

The experienced goalkeeper played in the 3-1 defeat at Wembley, which saw the U’s return to the Football League.

The 32-year-old is one of only two survivors from the squad, along with Danny Parslow, who is likely to play tomorrow.

While Ingham believes that result means there is an added rivalry for York’s supporters, it is even more important for him to make amends on the pitch.

He said: “From the football club's point of view, they will probably be the rivals in this division, possibly apart from Bradford, because of past history.

“I don't think it will be as big as Luton for the fans but myself and Dan Parslow, who were here for that Wembley game, will be trying to put things right.”

I can always remember coming away from the game , as a York fan, with my wife , two daughters and their two friends. We were all on the coach disappointed with the result and as we slowly made our way from Wembley, our coach pulled alongside two or three Oxford coaches. The abuse in the form of hand gestures from these ' Oxford fans ' who were all banging the windows of their coach and clearly shouting obscenities at us left me feeling angry . So on my part I do hope we beat you on Saturday ,although I'm pretty certain those said 'fans' would be no where to be seen anyway !!!!!!

On behalf of all decent Oxford supporters I must apologise for the bad behaviour of these so called fans. After the Wembley game my 2 sons and I walked back to the car with some York fans and we found them as nice decent people too. I felt sorry for them as they had travelled far and lost a fair match. Good luck to York for this season, nice to have you back in the league.
