Looking forward to this. We are always saying we want a different decent away cup draw, somewhere we haven't played for ages and not to far away, so should be a good one with a decent allocation. Has anyone got any ideas where to drink for this one prematch?

Not too many boozers in walking distance - or at least ones you'd actually want to visit.

The Merlin is your best bet but isn't great. It's about a 5 minute walk from the ground itself.

Failing that, there's the usual suspects in town centre which is 20-30 minutes walk from the ground if you know where you're going.

Away fans are treated to their own bar, called Bar 71, which is located by the away turnstiles. The County Hotel right by the ground, did not allow entrance to away supporters on my last visit. Best to continue down County Road and seek out the Cricket Club that sits behind the Arkells Stand. As Mark Osborne from Swindon adds; 'On match days home and away fans can park on the cricket ground (for a small fee) and then have access to a drink in the cricket club. This is a very friendly (as well as cheap) club that always welcomes away fans'. I would echo these comments but also add that you can still get into the cricket club (there is no charge) even if you have not parked there. Please note though that the Cricket Club facilities are not available when the Cricket Club is playing a match. This doesn't happen often but can do towards the beginning and end of the football season, when fixtures overlap.
