Paul Cook has no new injury problems to contend with as his Accrington side look to bounce back from a weekend humiliation.

Stanley suffered their third consecutive League Two defeat in going down 5-0 at Oxford and Cook is expected to shuffle his pack.

Striker Karl Sheppard is pushing for inclusion in the squad, although Cook must juggle his loan signings.

Rob Atkinson, Danny Schofield, Piero Mingoia and Jack Sampson all started on Saturday, with Matt Whichelow on the bench as the squad's fifth loanee having missed out at the expense of Reading youngster Sheppard at Torquay a week earlier.

Midfielder Charlie Barnett is back in training following his ankle injury absence but is not ready for a return to first-team action.

York manager Gary Mills has no new injury or suspension worries.

Mills recalled Dan Parslow to his defence and Michael Coulson up front alongside Ashley Chambers for the weekend win over Dagenham and must decide whether to retain them.

Jon Challinor and Jamie Reed made way for the pair and will be pushing to return, while midfielder Paddy McLaughlin and defender Danny Blanchett are also in contention.

Skipper Scott Kerr, recently back from a long-term knee injury, went off with 20 minutes left at the weekend, but is expected to resume in midfield.

"Scott came off on Saturday more for football reasons than any match fitness concerns," manager Gary Mills told Press Association Sport. "Dagenham are very direct and that's also why we put Danny Parslow in at right-back because he's better at dealing with a lot of high balls."

The Minstermen secured their first league win in five matches at the weekend, but have lost only one of their last six and are one point off the top seven.

'Costa Is A Bad Man. Suarez Is Not'

That's quite some claim. And yes, unfortunately we are still talking about this. We also have mails on Ronaldinho, possible replacements for Yaya Toure and more...

Red Mist Better Than Calculated Costa?

Hmmm. We're not sure about this argument - one Mailbox says Luis Suarez is easier to forgive because he is a little loco. We also have mails on Studge and more...
