Stevenage manager Alex Revell got his wish for another home tie in the FA Cup – and they landed another former Premier League outfit.
Swansea City, who were still in the top tier in 2018, will visit the Lamex Stadium in the third round of the famous competition.
The Swans are now in the Championship and currently sit fourth, their latest result a 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest.
The two sides met in the second round back in 2003 with the then Division Three side, now League Two, winning 2-1, Lee Trundle getting the winner after Anthony Elding had equalised for Borough.
It is Boro’s reward for two penalty shoot-out victories, the latest a 6-5 win over Hull City on Sunday.
