The Robins have been undone by lower league opposition in the competition for the last two years, and McInnes is hoping home advantage will prove decisive.

"We want to do far better in cup competitions than in previous campaigns. Hopefully with the right focus and performances we can do that," he told the club's official website.

"Like with all cup draws you hope to be given a home tie and I'm pleased we've got that. We'll prepare properly for the fixture and give Gillingham every respect."

The tie will be played the week commencing 13 August before the 2012/13 league season gets underway.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
