Chesterfield officials will attend a personal hearing at Wembley Stadium next Monday after the club was charged by The FA with a breach of FA Cup rules.

It is alleged that the club is in breach of FA Cup Rule 15(j)(i) for fielding an ineligible player following Georg Margreitter’s appearance in Saturday’s second round tie at MK Dons.

The club has until 5pm on Thursday to reply to the charge. Club officials will then travel to the capital on Monday for the hearing, which starts at 11.30am.
