Manager Nigel Clough insists Staines Town or Millwall will be tough opposition for Derby in the FA Cup third round.

The Rams have been drawn away to the winners of the second-round tie, which will be replayed at The Den on December 8 after the Blue Square South side held League One Millwall to a 1-1 draw at home on Saturday.

"One thing is certain, whichever team it is, it is going to be a tough game for different reasons," said Clough. "Whichever team it is, we will treat them exactly the same as we do any Championship opponent."

Clough added: "Obviously the game is a long way off so it will not emerge on our priority list until it comes round but a cup run would be nice this season for various reasons.

"It is always nice to get the money in from a cup run, plus it is added interest for our supporters. I am aware we do not have a good record in the cups, particularly the FA Cup, but maybe that can change this season."

The tie against Staines or Millwall will be played the weekend of January 2-3.
