Speaking to swindontownfc.co.uk shortly after the draw was made this morning, the Swindon boss anticipates a good game of football against the Grecians.
"I'm happy to be at home," he said. "It's a local-ish derby against a team that plays good football. Of course, they are also an ex team of mine.
"They are a really good football club. There are a lot of good people down there and it should be a good football match."
Ticket details for the first round clash will be announced in due course.
