Futcher Reacts To FA Cup Draw

Assistant Manager Gives His Verdict On Dartford Tie

16 October 2017

Swindon Town Assistant Boss Ben Futcher is looking forward to his side's trip to Dartford in The FA Cup next month.

The First Round draw handed The Reds a trip to Princes Park, with ties due to be played the weekend commencing November 3rd, and Futcher has given his views on the fixture. 

"We've seen the draw and it is somewhere we've not been before. Dartford are doing quite well in the league so it will be a tough game away from home, but one we're looking forward to," he told swindontownfc.co.uk exclusively.

"Our away form has been good so when it comes round we'll be ready for it.

"Everyone loves The FA Cup and our fans have been fantastic away from home, they've followed us in good numbers and I'm sure they will again in The FA Cup.

"The away form has been good but we'll give them full respect as we do with all of our opposition and we'll go there looking to progress to the next round.

"The early rounds are tough because the non-league sides can be banana skins and it will be a tough match, but we'll prepare as we would for a league game and we'll go there looking to win."
