Not liable to be easy for Rotherham to squeeze past non-league York

| 17.11.2010

Rotherham may have to contend with a defensive reshuffle if they are to reach the second round of the FA Cup at the expense of York.

The League Two outfit were unable to break down York at home in the original game and face a tricky trip if they are to progress.

York are expecting close to 4,000 supporters for the game and will be buoyed by the news that Rotherham may be without skipper Ryan Cresswell.

Johnny Mullins is another defender struggling to be fit enough to feature, while Danny Coid is unable to take part because of the lateness of his arrival at Rotherham on loan.

Rotherham are 6/5 to beat York in the FA Cup betting odds, despite only winning one game in the competition in the past eight seasons.

York are 7/4 to reach the second round and will use the fixture as a welcome distraction from their battle with relegation in the Conference.

Luton are fairing far better in the Conference and are only two points off top spot in the standings.

However, they also require a replay if they are to advance in the FA Cup against Corby.

Alex Lawless is out for Luton as he has already played for York in the competition, while Zdenek Krica is suspended for the replay after amassing five league bookings.

Luton have managed to win six of their nine league games at home, conceding only seven goals in the process.

They are 1/4 to beat Corby, who have not be so impressive away from home in the Conference North.

Corby have won just one of their six away league outings and managed just five goals in the process, but are 7/1 to beat Luton.

A potential correct scoreline could be Luton to win 2-0, which can be backed at 5/1. See the full Luton vs Corby FA Cup match betting odds market.
