County have played them once before, winning 2-0 in the FA Cup 2nd round in 1960.

On paper it looks a great draw, however ‘The Two Blues’ will be very much up for their match at Edgeley Park and County will need to ensure an upset is avoided.

The tie will take place on Saturday 15th October at 3pm.

The winner of this game will receive £12,500.
