YORK City are looking forward to a semi-final under the lights at Bootham Crescent when the Minstermen host Thornaby in the North Riding County FA Senior Cup.

Scheduled to be played before the end of March, the last-four meeting is possibly set to be among the last night games the Minstermen play at their home of 88 years before the impending move to the LNER Community Stadium.

As it stands, the only other likely night game to come before the end of the season is the rearranged home meeting with Hereford, though this could change with any other postponements.

Assistant manager Micky Cummins says the club are keen on the occasion, and believes the fans are likely to be too.

He said: "We've been supported well in this club from the fans and it's an opportunity for them with maybe a bit more emotion attached to it, so we may get a bigger crowd for it.

"We're looking forward to it."

York breezed through the first round of the Senior Cup with a 5-0 home win over Pickering Town and got through the quarter-finals following a 2-2 draw at Whitby, which City won 4-3 on penalties.

Both games were played by youthful looking York sides - and Cummins says he would not hesitate to deploy the youngsters again.

He said: "There will be things to consider. If it's in-between a couple of big games or we have a couple of niggles, that will decide the team we play and the squad.

"Looking at the Whitby performance, the group that did play from the (under-)18s did fantastically well. We have absolutely no concerns sticking them in.

"Then there will be, at the time, possibly a couple of pros who might need a few minutes."
