Easington currently sit 12th in the EBAC Northern League Division Two after a slow start to the season.
On Tuesday, the Colliers first team manager Lee Haldane had to step down from his role due to work commitments.
Despite their league position, Easington have had some strong results so far season, including a 5-2 win against Chester-Le-Street United and a 5-1 win against Ryton & Crawcrook Albion.
Speaking after the Anchors’ 1-1 draw at Grantham on Saturday, manager Michael Dunwell spoke ahead of the game and said:
“We want to do well in the cups, but we’ve got to look after our players for the league games.
“We should have at least three back on Wednesday, definitely Tom Portas, hopefully Elliott [Beddow] and Matty [Tymon].
“Night games under the lights are always good, we’ll see what Easington are about, I know they’re a few leagues below but they’re going to want to put up a performance against us.”
