Northampton, who lost in a first-round replay against Cambridge United last season, beat the Spireites 3-1 when the sides last met in February 2017. Chesterfield edge the overall record with 19 wins in 43 meetings and Cobblers have a particularly poor record at the Technique Stadium having not won there since 1993, some 12 games ago.

First round ties will be played across the weekend of November 4th, 5th and 6th.
