York City boss Sam Collins has insisted his team’s FA Cup first round trip to Swindon Town will not be treated as a “day out”, report York Press.

The Minstermen will travel to Wiltshire on the weekend of November 9/10 for their first fixture at a Football League ground in two-and-a-half years.

The City chief said: “The draw could probably have been better in terms of some of the other teams that were in the hat from a revenue point of view. We could have got a Sunderland or a Bradford or, alternatively, we could have got somebody at home, like we had with St Ives and Ashton Athletic earlier in the competition, that would give you a really, good opportunity to get through another round and make more money that way.

“It’s a tough draw, but one that we know we are capable of getting a result from. They have been a bit up and down in the league and will have wanted to have done better than they have done so far by showing more consistency.”
