THE draw in the FA Cup has once again pitted York City as favourites - and they must once again respond appropriately to make sure there are no slip-ups.

City tomorrow (3pm) take on Step 3 outfit Morpeth Town at the LNER Community Stadium in the fourth round qualifying of the Cup with a place in the first round proper at stake.

It is the Minstermen's third consecutive home tie against a lower-league outfit in this campaign, and thus another fantastic opportunity to progress - or to become a high-profile scalp.

York have made it thus far with bloodless, professional defeats of Hebburn Town (3-0) and Whitby Town (2-0).

With Morpeth plying their trade at the same level as Whitby, City’s modus operandi should remain the same.

“Just approach it with the same attitude," Cummins said. "Each game, we’ve got non-negotiables - you’ve got to be 100 per cent, your attitudes got to be spot-on and you’ve got to be all-out energetic.

“Especially when we’re playing people out of position, we can’t get complacent or think it’s going to be an easy game. That’s when you get turned over.

“We need to set our stall out, get that early goal and they’ll have to come out and play.

“If we don’t score early, we’ve got to be resolute as a group and just try to get a positive result.

“It’s a home game against opposition from the same league as Whitby. We went and watched them the other evening - they’ve got good quality in there and good Football League and National League experience.

“They were 4-1-4-1, solid, they looked hard to break down. They had two or three players missing so we expect them to be involved on Saturday.

“We’re expecting them to bring a decent crowd as well. We know what North East teams are like, they’ll follow them and get behind them.

“We’re expecting a good FA Cup day.

“The rewards going through Saturday is the first round when the League One and Two clubs come in to it. The carrot’s there and it’s down to us to produce what we have been doing."
