Cook Reacts to Non-League FA Cup Draw

28 October 2014

Last night Chesterfield were drawn to play away at Weymouth or Braintree in the first round of this season's FA Cup.

The two non-league sides will replay their final qualifying round match tonight, with the winner set to host the Spireites on the weekend on Saturday, November 8.

For Paul Cook's men, it's the sort of potential banana skin that has made the FA Cup so famed down the years, and it's a tie the Chesterfield manager is looking forward to.

Cook said: “Whether it’s Braintree or Weymouth it’ll be a great occasion and exactly what the FA Cup is all about.

“We’ll be going down to a non-league club and they’ll have a glint in their eyes planning to take a League One scalp.

“We’ll be travelling down showing them the greatest of respect and not taking either side lightly because we know how hard it’ll be.

“The bottom line is that this will be a great day in the FA Cup for the home fans and it’ll also be a good day for our travelling supporters. We’re looking forward to it and hoping we’ll be able to do enough to get to the second round.”
