First published in Sport York Press: Photograph of the Author by , Sports reporter

MONDAY'S FA Cup replay is likely to be worth £70,000 to the winners.

York City and hosts AFC Wimbledon are already guaranteed £32,000 each due to the match being screened live by ESPN, but whoever prevails will also receive £18,000 in prize money.

Minstermen chairman Jason McGill said progress to the second round would be worth an estimated additional £20,000 as well.

“You could get that amount from the shared gate receipts from another match in the competition,” he pointed out.

So it is an extra £38,000 (potentially) less travel costs etc. Not £70k, as £32k is already 'won'.
But yes - the Cup can really inject funds, especially if we got to the 3rd Round - so lets get the City bandwagon back on the right track. :-)

Need to get the passing game going again - we haven't got the strength to play the long ball and win knock downs like the rest.

Tip tap tip tap....explode......
score!!

Paddy in midfield please
Blair on the wing please
Johnson on the other wing/up front and give Chambers a rest for an hour ?

Give reedy a game surely he will be hungry to do well (if he is out of favour the TV could help him get a move to somewhere he will play football ??

I imagine Walker & Kerr will need a rest ?
