Rams travel to Plymouth in 5th round

Rams travel to Plymouth in 5th round

The Rams have drawn away to Plymouth Argyle in the 5th round of the FA Cup, after the draw held at the Football Association at lunch time today. The Rams visited Home Park earlier this season and were beaten 3-1 against a ten-man Argyle side.

Rams boss Billy Davies says the draw has provided his side with a tough test.
"Obviously we were looking for a big Premiership club, as everyone was, but you've got to take what comes out of the hat and do the job," Davies said.
"It doesn't really matter who you get though - if you're going to progress in the cup then you have got to do the job regardless.
"It is a tough match but we will be looking forward to it."

The Rams will have bad memories of Plymouth, after losing to them in the 1983 quarter-final. They drew 0-0 at Home Park but lost 0-1 at the Baseball Ground in the replay.
