 An own goal from defender Chris Smith and second-half strikes by Kieran Agard and Alex Revell secured a 3-0 win at Bootham Crescent and avenged a defeat to York in the same competition last year.

 Showing five changes from the team that beat Brentford on Saturday, the Millers won through without ever hitting top gear against League Two opponents.

 They went ahead from their first serious attack on 17 minutes. Joe Skarz cut the ball back from the byline and it deflected into the net off Smith.

 The goal prompted York to up their game and Elliott Whitehouse and Ryan Jarvis should have levelled before half time.

 They continued to dominate in the early stages of the second half before the tie was settled by two goals in five minutes shortly after the hour mark.

 Lewis Montrose tumbled Agard in the box and the forward picked himself up to slam in the resulting penalty and the hosts were still digesting that blow when Revell rose to head in the third.

   York: Ingham, O’Neill, Davies, Smith, Parslow, Platt (Murray 76), Montrose, Whitehouse, Jarvis, Chambers (Bowman 69), Fletcher (Cresswell 69)

Millers: Collin, Brindley, Skarz, Mills, Morgan (capt) Rowe (86), Agard (Bradley 90), Frecklington, Tidser, Pringle (Milsom 90), Revell, Hylton

Referee: Mark Heywood (West Yorkshire)

Attendance: 2,372 (529 visitors)
