The Minstermen are expected to include on loan pair Ashley Chambers and Robbie Weir (inset) after both were ineligible for their first round replay victory against Rotherham United. Robbie Weir

But neither Chris Carruthers nor Levi Mackin were likely to be involved after recently recovering from injuries, as the visitors chase a fourth consecutive victory and a place in the third round of the competition for the second successive season.

"I am not being arrogant or blasé, but it is all about us," York boss Gary Mills told The Press. "I don`t delve into opponents. I worry about what we are doing.

"If we do what we`ve been doing, however they play, I believe we can go and win the game. It`s about us and nobody else. I have been saying that since I arrived and the players are concentrating on that very well."

Darlington are without their former Rushden & Diamonds midfielder Paul Terry due to a cruciate ligament injury, while on loan Gainsborough Trinity striker Jefferson Louis is ineligible.

However, defender Aaron Brown could return after serving a one-match ban, and former Northern Ireland international winger Keith Gillespie and on loan Leicester City midfielder Aman Verma should also be involved after recently joining the club.
