FA Cup draw approaching

FA Cup draw approaching

Sunday will see Exeter City learn who their FA Cup first round opponents are to be. The Grecian`s have a modest cup record under boss Paul Tisdale having never past the second round.

At this stage of the competition last season City faced a trip to non-league Nuneaton Town where they triumphed 4-0 before bowing out in the second round losing 4-3 in a classic at Stadium MK.

Tisdale`s men will be dreading a repeat of their efforts two seasons ago where they were embarrassed 3-2 at lowly Curzon Ashton.

In recent history Exeter`s most famous FA Cup journey took them to Old Trafford in 2005. Where they earned a goalless draw against Alex Ferguson`s star studded line-up, City were finally beaten 2-0 in the replay.

The draw takes place at 12.30pm on Sunday.
