FA CUP: United drawn to face Plymouth away

United to face Plymouth Argyle at Home Park in FA Cup round one

Carlisle United have been drawn to face Plymouth Argyle at Home Park in the first round of this season's FA Cup competition.

United received national media attention when they made the midweek trek to Argyle in August as 169 United fans were given their own round of applause from the home faithful for their Tuesday night efforts.

Manager Keith Curle said: "It's the FA Cup and it's a fantastic competition - whoever you are drawn to play and wherever you are drawn to play them.

"Make no mistake about it, we will go there to win. We showed in the first half earlier in the season that we can cause them problems and, if anything, we have improved and grown as a team since we were last there. There is certainly nothing for us to be scared of."

"It's another long journey but we've embraced that this season," he added. "We make sure we prepare properly and we are used to the way we have to start to get ourselves ready from the moment we leave Brunton Park.

"In terms of miles covered, we certainly aren't doing things by halves. It would be interesting to get someone with the statistics to hand to tally up how close we're getting to becoming the Football League club who has had to cover most miles in domestic competitions in a single season. 

"I wouldn't think we'll be too far away from whatever that figure is now."

Match and ticket details will follow as soon as they have been finalised.
