De Girolamo, who scored the winner in the last round against York City to book his side’s place in the second-round draw, came through the United academy as a youngster and if his side can overcome the League One strugglers, he already knows who he wants to face next.
“There is a lot of excitement amongst the lads,” he admitted.

“We are all talking about who we want in the next round if we win.
“I don’t support them, but I’d want either Sheffield United away or Manchester United at Old Trafford.”
De Girolamo has already insisted that his side will not fear Morecambe, although they will treat them with the respect they deserve, and believes Buxton’s astroturf pitch could give an extra dimension to the cup clash.
“Morecambe won't have played on that this season, and we will have lots of fans there,” he added.
“We can't go into it too confident or we could find ourselves two down in the first 15 minutes. It's about the mindset and the game plan you go into.
“It is a match we have to respect. They are above us, but we have to go in without fear and treat it as a normal game.
“I had that great feeling against Kettering and against York. If I experience it against Morecambe it would be unbelievable. It is on my mind how it can happen.
“It is a brilliant place to be around at the moment. We are getting big crowds and there is great banter in the dressing room. There's just a real buzz at the club right now.
“It's probably some of the best memories I have had in football.”
And on the game being shown live on the BBC, De Girolamo added: “It makes me give a bit extra, and I would rather the game was on television than not.
"I perform better with pressure, I think."
