In tonight's Emirates FA Cup first-round draw, the Spireites have been paired to play away at Colchester United.

The draw was conducted live on BBC 2 and on BT Sport, with the first round being the first step to potential glory for the Spireites this season, the twentieth anniversary of the club's famous 1997 semi-final run.

Ticket details for the fixture will be released in due course, with the game scheduled to take place over the weekend of Saturday, November 5.

Speaking ahead of the draw manager Danny Wilson spoke of his excitement: "Everybody will be sat and waiting for our number to come out, whatever happens it's the romance of the Cup and whoever we get we'll want to progress.

"I love it, I think it's fantastic and it's great for everybody."
