York City go live before the nation for the first time since their Wembley heroics in their televised FA Cup first round replay at AFC Wimbledon this evening. It is estimated that whoever prevails to face either MK Dons or Cambridge City in the next round will net around £70,000 from the tie. Both clubs are already guaranteed £32,000 each due to live TV screening with ESPN, while the eventual winners will be rewarded by a further £18,000 in prize money. Added to that would be an estimated £20,000 return from the next round. AFC Wimbledon should be confident after a comfortable 3-0 win at York on Saturday. But the Minstermen are usually a completely different side away from home and will still be dangerous, especially given that shock humbling by their hosts in front of their own supporters just a two days ago.
"Part and parcel of football is losing and, if you can't handle that, get out of the game but I won't be doing that," York boss Gary Mills told The Press. "You can't feel sorry for yourself and you have to look forward to the next game. Saturday's match will be forgotten by January when we've hopefully moved up the table and played MK Dons or Cambridge City in the next round of the FA Cup. I have to pick the right team and get the confidence back into my players."
AFC Wimbledon have to make changes from the weekend as loanees George Francomb, Jonathan Meades and Jake Reeves are ineligible. Both Mat Mitchel-King (back) and Callum McNaughton (knee) could return.
Decent striker at this level who should be boosted after finally breaking his eleven-game goalscoring drought at the weekend.
York will be forced into at least one change with on loan signing Alex Rodman unavailable due to joining the club after the date of the original tie. He is likely to be replaced by Patrick McLaughlin.
York City (probable): Ingham, Oyebanjo, C. Smith, Carlisle, Fyfield, Kerr, Kearns, McLaughlin, Blair, Walker, Chambers
subs: Musselwhite, Parslow, Doig, Challinor, Reed, Johnson, Potts
Few positives from the weekend but the on loan Republic of Ireland Under-23 international could just be one.
This is a third meeting in nine days between the two clubs and with the home side so far enjoying a clear advantage against opponents who are usually a completely different proposition on their travels.
