City loanees miss out
York manager Gary Mills will be unable to call on on-loan pair Ashley Chambers and Robbie Weir for their FA Cup first round replay at home to Rotherham.
Forward Chambers, on a deal from Leicester until January, and midfielder Weir, whose stay from Sunderland lasts for a month, made their first appearances for the club in Saturday's draw with Wrexham, but both are ineligible.
Peter Till is also missing after failing to overcome the hamstring injury which caused him to miss the weekend's game. but Jonathan Smith (knee ligaments) is expected to come back into the squad.
Captain Chris Smith will be available after he completed his one-match suspension for picking up five bookings.
Ball-winner Levi Mackin is back in training after overcoming his long-term knee injury as is striker George Purcell after his long absence with an ankle problem, but neither are likely to be risked.
Rotherham are sweating on the fitness of skipper Ryan Cresswell.
The centre-half came off at half-time of Saturday's 2-1 win over Oxford with back spasms and boss Ronnie Moore rates him at 50-50 to make the Bootham Crescent clash.
Moore has other defensive concerns as Johnny Mullins is struggling with a calf injury and is unlikely to play, while on-loan right-back Danny Coid is ineligible having not been at the club for the original tie 10 days ago.
Midfielder Danny Harrison is on standby to play at right-back should Mullins not make it.
Moore is at full strength in all other positions though as the Millers go into the match aiming for just their second FA Cup win since beating Southampton in 2002.
Rankine brace stuns Millers
Michael Rankine scored twice as York blitzed Rotherham with three unanswered second-half goals to send them crashing out of the FA Cup.
The hosts began brightly as they sensed an opportunity to collect a league scalp and they should have taken the lead inside the opening five minutes, but Daniel Parslow blazed over after ghosting past three defenders.
Rotherham began to get a foothold in the game as the first half wore on, though, and Stephen Brogan wasted two gilt-edged chances to give the League Two side the lead. First he hit the post from Ryan Taylor's cute header and then he dragged his shot inexplicably wide when the goal was gaping.
The Millers should have led at the break but the usually prolific Adam Le Fondre fired over when through on goal.
York came strong after the break and took a deserved lead when Chris Smith headed home from close range in the 66th minute following Rankine's cross.
And Rankine got in on the act five minutes later after Luke Ashworth hauled him down in the area and the striker got up to stroke the resulting penalty coolly home.
Rankine put the game to bed to complete a 13-minute barrage when he cut inside and placed his shot neatly in the far corner to set up a second-round tie with Darlington, while Ronnie Moore's men were left to contemplate a third exit to non-league opposition in the last four years.
