Darren Carter was an injury concern ahead of the 5-1 defeat to the Barclays Premier League side and the former West Brom midfielder's substitution was just as a precaution and he is likely to retain his place in the line-up.
Welsh striker Kaid Mohamed started for the first time in a month against the Toffees and he will hope to have done enough to get the nod over fellow forward Darryl Duffy against the Minstermen.
Meanwhile, Yates is working hard to bring in a few new players to improve his side in the next 10 days as the Robins look to maintain their promotion push.
"We need to improve one or two things, we need to keeping working on the boys that we've got, keep the great spirit that we've got but also the current boys in the squad need a little bit of help," Yates told the club's official website.
"We'll make sure we're refreshed, recovered, be full of energy and will play as well as we can."
