Rotherham United will go into the hat (although it’s more a plastic bowl now) on Sunday for the draw for the First Round Proper of the FA Cup. The draw takes place live on ITV1 at 1.30pm.

Teams from both League One and League Two will be joining the thirty-two non-league teams who have won this weekends ties. The game will take place on the weekend of 12th/13th November 2011.

The winners of each tie will pick-up £18,000 in prize money and each home and away team will be granted forty-five per cent of the gate receipts.

Millers Manager Andy Scott has said that he hopes to get a ‘home’ draw, saying, ‘I don’t think the FA Cup has been too kind to Rotherham over the last few years and we want to have a good run in the Cup. It’s an opportunity to get a bit of enthusiasm going and we are looking forward to the draw. We want to be in the second round and I’ll be watching the draw eagerly on Sunday to see who we get.’
