Stoke City: Meet the York City players likely to face Stoke
BETWEEN THE STICKS
FRONT MAN: York's Michael Rankine, who played his part in beating Crewe Alex in the previous round, will line up against Stoke tomorrow.
THE 29-year-old Northern Ireland international goalkeeper had a month on loan for Stoke in the 2001-2002 season when he was on the books at Sunderland.
The 6ft 4in keeper signed from Hereford 18 months ago, and his performances this season have been worthy of a division or two higher than the Blue Square Premier.

AT THE BACK
THE 24-year-old right-back is an out-and-out defender rather than an attacking full-back. The former Wales under-21 captain has played more than 150 games for the Minstermen since signing from Cardiff in 2006.
CENTRAL defender is York's longest-serving player, having been with them since the 2004-2005 campaign.
The 27-year-old Middlesbrough-born former Darlington defender is a reliable performer at the heart of defence.
THE 23-year-old central defender has formed a successful partnership with McGurk after signing on loan from Mansfield at the start of November.
AUSSIE left-back joined York in the summer from Shrewsbury. The 21-year-old was in the Derby youth side before spells at Chesterfield and Sligo Rovers led to a move to Shrewsbury two years ago.
IN THE MIDDLE
SKILFUL right-sided midfielder rather than a specialist winger. The 26-year-old joined York in the summer after three years at Forest Green Rovers. The former Wales under-21 international began his career as a youth player at Fulham.
TOUGH tackling central midfielder who signed from Wrexham in the summer after a successful loan spell last season. The 23-year-old is another former Wales under-21 international.
ANOTHER central midfielder who is not afraid of sticking his foot in. Barrett was a trainee at Chelsea before making 26 appearances in the Championship for Portsmouth in the 2001-2002 season. The 28-year-old joined York from Ebbsfleet in the summer.
THE 26-year-old, who will play on the left of midfield, is on loan from York's Blue Square rivals Oxford United.
Can also play in defence and has turned out at full-back for Northampton and Bristol Rovers. A former England under-20 player who had to mark Cristiano Ronaldo at the Toulon tournament.
THE 24-year-old striker signed for York from Rushden and Diamonds in the summer. The 6ft 2in hit-man is the nephew of former Wolves midfielder Mark Rankine.
UNDOUBTEDLY York's star man. The 22-year-old has scored 25 goals in all competitions this season, and broke a club record by reaching 20 goals by the start of December.
Brodie was signed from Newcastle Benfield three years ago, but was on loan at Barrow when Martin Foyle came to York.
He has benefited from former striker Foyle's guidance, and has reportedly attracted interest from Sheffield Wednesday, Derby and Huddersfield.
ON THE BENCH
THE 20-year old reserve keeper is the son of former Everton and Tottenham stopper Bobby Mimms.
FORMER Sheffield United trainee lost his spot at right-back through injury and hasn't been able to dislodge Parslow.
Purkiss is a 25-year-old law student who played for Great Britain in the World Student Games in Belgrade last summer.
THE 24-year-old right winger was a trainee at Chesterfield and had a spell at Lincoln before joining York from Gainsborough Trinity last season.
GEORDIE who can play in central midfield or on the left. A youth player with Newcastle United, he also had spells at Watford, Hereford and Kidderminster before joining York in the summer.
YORK'S run to the final of the FA Trophy last season helped fund a £55,000 deal for the 24-year old Ebbsfleet striker this summer.
However, the 6ft 1in German-born forward is having to be patient because Brodie and Rankine are forming such an effective partnership.
MARTIN Foyle tried to sign the striker from Yeovil during his time in charge at Port Vale. Gall was recruited on loan for Vale from Carlisle by Dean Glover last season.
However, the 27-year-old didn't score in seven games and has joined York on loan after signing for Darlington in the summer.
THE 26-year-old striker put Havant and Waterlooville ahead in their FA Cup fourth-round tie at Liverpool in the 2007-08 season (Liverpool eventually won 5-2).
The Dominican international began his career at QPR and has also had spells at Mansfield, MK Dons and Brentford.
