The Grecians face a tricky trip to a side flying high in League One as they look to avoid another first-round exit having been knocked out by the likes of Stockport, Curzon Ashton and Bury in recent seasons.

"No draw is a bad draw until after the game is gone because we are capable of beating anybody, but you don't really get tougher than this one," he told the Express & Echo.

"It would have been good to have a home draw against a lower league team, but that is the way it is. We have to deal with it.

"It has been particularly sore subject this past few years, us not winning any of these FA Cup first-round ties. I was hoping to win a couple of games at least this season, but it is going to be difficult."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
