The two sides have been drawn to play each other at Elland Road in Round 1 during the week commencing August 5 and McDermott is delighted with a home tie.
"I'm pleased for a number of reasons. I've just been told that we haven't played them since 1960 so it will be great to play them," McDermott told the club's official website.
"It's a local game for us and any time you are in a cup draw you want to be drawn at home so we're pleased about that.
"My priority is the next game, that's how I see things.
"If the next game is a cup game we'll try and win it and if it's a league game we'll try and win that one, it's very simple as far as I'm concerned."
