Chesterfield will be in the hat and ball number 53 in tonight's FA Cup third round draw.

The draw will be televised live on BBC Two from 7pm this evening, with former England captain and Match of the Day pundit Alan Shearer helping with the draw.

Having beaten MK Dons 1-0 on Saturday, the Spireites will this season be in the third round for only the second time since the famous cup run of 1997.

Other numbers to look out for are:

2. Arsenal

3. Aston Villa

13. Chelsea

16. Everton

23. Liverpool

24. Manchester City

25. Manchester United

28. Newcastle United

33. Rotherham United

34. Sheffield Wednesday

39. Tottenham Hotspur

and, of course...

52. Blyth Spartans

So will the Spireites have their chance for revenge over Middlesbrough (number 26), a local derby with Mansfield (or Cambridge United, 62), or will Paul Cook return to former club Accrington Stanley (51)? 

Follow the draw tonight on Twitter @chesterfieldfc and find out as it all happens.
