Doncaster Rovers: Grant McCann does not like talk of FA Cup upset after being drawn against Chorley
Grant McCann admits he is not too keen on Doncaster Rovers being mentioned as potentially on the wrong end of an upset in the FA Cup.
Rovers have been drawn away at non-league Chorley in the first round of the competition.
Chorley currently sit top of National League North with an unbeaten record in the league so far this season.
And McCann expects there will be a considerable amount of interest in the fixture with the proverbial FA Cup banana skin a possibility.
'Not really,' McCann said when asked if he enjoyed such cup ties.
'WhatÂ you find with these games is the TV cameras look and think ifÂ we are selected, there may be an upset.
'I had it last yearÂ when Peterborough played TranmereÂ and they want to come and see the upset.'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹
'But I made sureÂ we won 5-0 there and theÂ cameras weren't getting the upset on theÂ cards there.'
Rovers willÂ visit the Lancashire outfit on the weekend of November 9, with the exact date set to be confirmed this week.
Chorley beat Barrow 3-2 to book their place in the FA Cup first round after coming back from two goals down.
'I don't know too much about Chorley but we'll get to watch them,' McCann said.
'I know they're flying in the league, unbeaten.
'I believe theyÂ were here watching us on Tuesday night.
'We'll get out and watch them over the next couple of weeks.
'It's a good chance for us toÂ progress '“Â nothing against Chorley '“Â we want to try to have a good run in it this year.
'We'll be nice and strong going there and hopefully we can get through.'
The Magpies are managed byÂ Jamie Vermiglio, who succeeded former Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Jansen in the post in the summer.
Vermiglio's association with the club goes back to 2003 and, barring a three year stint between 2006 and 2009, he has been with them ever since, first as a player and then a coach.
