Chesterfield will go in to tonight’s FA Cup third round draw for only the second time since the Spireites’ memorable run to the semi-final stage in 1996/97.

The Spireites moved one step closer to Wembley on Saturday when they overcame fellow League One side MK Dons to leave their supporters dreaming of a glamour tie.

Chesterfield have been handed ball number 53 and will be in the hat alongside Premier League and Championship clubs for the first time in six years.

Having already accumulated £45,000 this season alone, a further £67,500 awaits the winners of the third round ties.

The draw will be made tonight (Monday, December 8) in Hull. The draw will be screened live on BBC2 from 7pm. Third round ties are scheduled for January 3, 2015.
