Histon's elation at beating Leeds and going through to the third round of the FA Cup turned to disappointment after they were drawn against Swansea.

After beating a side 42 places above them, the tiny club from Cambridgeshire had pinned their hopes on drawing one of the big Premier league sides – especially once they were given a home draw.

But is was not to be, in a draw that produced very few fixtures worthy of excitement.

Club manager Steve Fallon told the Sun: "From a supporters point of view it is great. I am glad we are at home and Swansea are a great Championship club.

"You could have the big boys but it's a good little tie for us.

"I'm sure we'll have a full house again and maybe a chance of getting into the fourth round."

When asked about his team's performance against the League Two side, Fallon said: "It was a magnificent rearguard action in the second half.

"We had a bit of luck when we needed it but we were magnificent. We deserved that victory. This will do this club the world of good."

Meanwhile, Swansea manager Roberto Martinez has said his side will by no means be taking it for granted that they have drawn a non-league club for the fourth consecutive time.

"We have to give them full credit for getting into the third round," he said. "The story is all about them now and that’s great for them.

“But from our point of view, we again have to play the hardest role which is that of the side going to the non-league team. Everyone hopes we are upset.

"That’s the magic of the cup and we will take our lessons from last year and that’s why it is important to see Histon as the favourites."
