Jackett’s side progressed to the 2nd Round of the LDV Vans Trophy after a 3-1 away win at Torquay and after some first round upsets involving League One sides, the Swans will certainly fancy their chances on a visit the Millenium Stadium for a cup final this season.

There were early exits for League One sides, Huddersfield, Southend, Yeovil, Bristol City, Barnsley, Chesterfield, Hartlepool and Nottingham Forest.

The LDV draw will take place at around 9:30am on SoccerAM. The FA Cup will also be televised – on BBC and Sky Sports News at 5:10pm.

The FA Cup ties are scheduled to be played the weekend of November 4th, 5th and 6th.

Two televised matches will be chosen from the 40 ties – with one to be played live on Sky Sports on Friday, November 4 and the other on BBC One on Sunday, November 6 (1:05pm).
All first round proper winners receive £16,000 in prize money.

Meanwhile, the away game at Southend on Saturday November 12th has been brought forward an hour and will kick off at 2pm because of England’s friendly match.
