Chichester City have been handed an away tie in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup at either Wycombe Wanderes or Tranmere Rovers, both of League One.

The draw was held live at City’s Oaklands Park ground and was conducted by former professionals Mark Bright and Dion Dublin, the latter picking out Chi’s ball, number 40 to set up the biggest game in the club’s history.

The League One rivals played out a 2-2 draw on Saturday meaning they’ll have to do it all again at Adams Park a week on Wednesday.

Ironically the two sides meet again before that in League One, a game that is being shown live on Sky Sports on Sunday.

Second round ties are due to take place between Friday 29th November and Monday 2nd December, with BBC and BT Sport still to decide which ones will be selected for television coverage.

Reaction from club officials courtesy of the Chichester Observer:

City boss Miles Rutherford said: “It’s a great draw. For most of these players to go from playing county league to visiting a League One team in such a short space of time is unbelievable really. It’s still sinking in.”

Chairman Andy Bell said: “It’s going to be a hell of a three weeks building up to it and it’s a tie we can all really look forward to immensely.”

City captain Connor Cody added: “The whole squad will relish taking on a League One team.”
