York City manager Gary Mills insists he has no regrets about changing his side despite seeing them lose 2-1 at Wrexham in the FA Cup.

Mills made seven changes to his team for the fourth qualifying round tie.

He told BBC Radio York: "You can't regret. I've picked a team and we've gone out there and nearly come away with the draw against Wrexham.

"This is the cup. You want to stay in it whichever way that is. Good luck to them but we have to move on."

He added: "We have to look forward to the next league game."

York went behind in the second half to a goal from Nat Knight-Percival before Patrick McLaughlin equalised.

However an own goal from York defender David McGurk with nine minutes remaining put Wrexham into the draw for the first round.

Mills said: "Fair play to Wrexham. They closed us down quickly in the first half.

"I don't think we strung three passes together. We've given too many free-kicks away and ultimately the first goal came from giving another free-kick away.

"We got ourselves back in the game and possibly had 10 minutes where we kept it better but ultimately we've been knocked out of the cup. That's always disappointing.

"We had to work hard today. We had to dig in and I thought we were going to come away with a draw.

"An own goal has given them the victory. It's going to hurt for a while but then we put it to bed and start again.

"They're a good side and that's the way it goes."
