Newport County manager Mike Flynn was pleased with being drawn at home to Cambridge United in the second round of the FA Cup.

The Exiles beat League One Walsall 2-1 in the first round at Rodney Parade and Flynn is confident his side can repeat the result against League Two rivals.

The second-round ties will be played from 1-4 December.

"It's what we wanted a home draw, because we're a match for anybody at home," Flynn told BBC Sport Wales.

"It'll be a tough game, but both of us will fancy our chances of making it to the third round."
