Let's just enjoy it. Mid table league one side it's a tough game and not a glamour tie but we should just enjoy it for what it is.

Their record isn't all that much better than Swindon's so you never know.

The entire draw is pretty awful. Only Barnet have got an EFL side at home, out of the non-league qualifiers.

Both Step 4 sides are at home but to other non-league sides.

Not beyond the realms we get a TV tie given how poor the pickings are elsewhere.

Either way, we can’t control the draw and while a home tie would’ve been better, it’s still another good chance to test ourselves.

We did beat them 10 years ago in the Cup at the Arena.

Am I the only one who thinks it is a decent draw ? A long way to go but another chance to pit ourselves against a pro team. Again nothing to loses and all the pressure on them. They will be wary with our results at Swindon and Walsall.

Tough draw but no reason why we cannot get a result. Bottom half of league one, don't score a lot of goals, no pressure on us so you just never know.Better than Peterborough or Portsmouth away and with no crowds should even things up significantly.If we had been drawn at home against them, without doubt would have been televised.
Gutted when the draw was first announced but on reflection we can still make it to round 3.

Must admit I didn't think it was a great draw, mainly down to travelling for the team, was hoping for home draw against lower league team, but it is what it is, and team is playing well and improving each game.

Are you going to do another overnight stop for players fund raiser again Mark?

We need them to have a player sent off like Wigan.

There were better draws potentially especially when we were one of the last out. However, as some have alluded to, Bristol Rovers are currently not much better than Swindon and we can go there with the same attitude and under-dog tag that may just work in our favour again and we do have cup previous against them in the cup albeit from 10 years ago. If we get through to the 3rd round then we'll have definitely earnt it! :thumbup:

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

Again, it's just not a great draw. I can only hope we've turned some heads with our win in the last round and we make it on TV.

I just wish we were making them travel up here than vice versa.

Look at it, I'm guessing prime candidates for TV games will be:

Peterborough vs Chorley
Portsmouth vs Kings Lynn

After that, it really is a toss-up. A lot of very meh games.

Our fans never cease to amaze me. If the Northern Echo still cared about what goes on at DFC it'd be in tomorrow's paper.

Canvey Island (Step 8) v Boreham Wood (Step 5) is surely nailed on?

Barnet v MK Dons is perhaps a likely candidate for a shock also.
