RUFC - York Manager on the FA Cup draw

Rotherham United were drawn out of the hat by SoccerAM`s Helen Chamberlain yesterday meaning they would be playing at Don Valley and when Norman Cook drew out York City I think it brought a mixed reaction from Millers` fans.

York are a non-league side who are playing in the Conference National Side while the Millers are a League Two side, currently in the top five of the division. But, in the past couple of seasons, non-league sides have 'done` for the Millers in this competition - last season, they managed a narrow victory (three-two) over Wealdstone, only to lose to Luton Town in a replay at Kenilworth Road and who can forget Forest Green in 2007? And, let`s be honest, we haven`t exactly been lighting up the stadium at Don Valley this season with our play.

But, it`s the FA Cup and it`s what dreams are made of.

Gary Mills, the York City Manager, told The Press that although it`s a tough draw for his Minstermen, they will come to Don Valley confident of getting a result.

'Our last game on Saturday was tough,` Mills said, after his side had beaten Kidderminster Harriers, 'and we`ve earned the right to be in the first round proper with a great performance. And, if we play like we did in that match, then we have every chance.

'We played Rotherham in pre-season so it`s only a few weeks since I`ve seen them play.

'It`s a Yorkshire derby and should attract a decent crowd.`
