OXFORD United are eyeing a plum draw in the Emirates FA Cup tonight.

Cameron Brannagan’s sensational 20-yard strike helped the U’s beat Sky Bet League One counterparts Plymouth Argyle 2-1 at Home Park.

James Henry had given United the lead just four minutes earlier and although Antoni Sarcevic reduced the deficit, the U’s resisted late pressure to reach the third round for a fifth time in the last eight years.

United are ball No 58 in tonight’s draw, which will be shown live on BBC One from 7.30pm, and the club are now dreaming of a potential tie against a Premier League side.

Goalkeeper Simon Eastwood said: “I just want a big team.

“When you get to the third round, you don’t want another club in your league, it prolongs it.

“I think everybody knows Oxford are not going to win the FA Cup.

“So to draw a big team early and get the game out the way, so we can concentrate on the league is something we will be looking for.”

United have earned £90,000 in prize money so far and have already faced Premier League champions Manchester City in the Carabao Cup this season.

Boss Robinson added: “We’ve already played the best team in the land and been knocked out of the league cup.

“That was our aim, to be knocked out in all cup competitions by teams that are above us in league status.

“We look forward to whoever we get and I’m sure the board will have their fingers crossed.”

One player who will definitely miss the third round tie, however, is Brannagan.

The midfielder, who was booked in the first-round replay win over Forest Green Rovers, was yellow carded for celebrating his wonder strike with the travelling supporters.

Due to new Football Association rules, a player who picks up two cautions in the Cup will receive a ban for the next tie.

Another United player eagerly awaiting the draw tonight is Armani Little.

The midfielder played 90 minutes for Woking in their 1-0 win at Swindon Town yesterday.
