Whitby return to the North Riding Senior Cup tonight after a six year absence as they take on Guisborough Town.

Manager Chris Hardy decided to bring the Blues back into the competition and is likely to only make modest changes after Saturday's 0-0 draw at Ilkeston.  

Hardy will be without injured defenders Callum Martin and Kieran Weledji, with skipper Steven Snaith completing his four-match suspension.

Guisborough ended a 23-match winless run at the weekend, after a 2-1 home success, over Whitley Bay in the Ebac Northern League Division One.

There are six players in their ranks with Whitby connections.

Goalkeeper James Dawson and Jamie Poole have been playing under joint registrations with both clubs, with striker David Onions playing under Darren Williams in 2012 and midfielder Stewart Bath having a short trial spell, also under Williams.

Another keeper, Ben Escritt had a distinguished 55-game run, which also included an outfield start, during two spells, between 2004 and 2010 and centre-back Paul Roddam appeared for the Blues late last season.

Hardy has drawn heavily from the squad he built at Guisborough, with Callum Martin, Steven Snaith, Andrew May, Dan McWilliams, Adam Gell, Mikey Roberts, Luke Bythway and goalkeepers Shane Bland and Danny Dixon all having played for The Priorymen.

Kick-off at the King George V Ground is 7.45pm, with the match needing to be settled on the night.
