Chorley will host Wayne Rooney’s Derby County when their FA Cup adventure continues.

The National League North Magpies have knocked out League One sides Wigan and Peterborough to reach the third round for the first time in their history.

Former England great Rooney is in interim charge of the Rams after they sacked Phillip Cocu after a poor start to the Championship season.

Magpies boss Jamie Vermiglio was thrilled with the draw and hoped Chorley fans would be able to be there in person to witness some club history.

“You want a Premier League side of course but second best is a top Championship side with Wayne Rooney,” he told the BBC.

“It’s really something to look forward to.

“Getting the fans in would be amazing. Like all non-league clubs, we’ve struggled this year with what’s going on.

“We’ve had a little money coming through with a grant but this FA Cup run really is keeping us afloat.”

Far from just wanting to make up the numbers, Vermiglio sees no reason why his side can’t spring another shock, especially considering the Rams’ start to the season.

Derby are bottom of the Championship table with a takeover looming, Rooney having indicated he is prepared to retire to take on the manager’s position on a permanent basis.

Vermiglio added: “I think you can go out and just enjoy it but when you look at things, Derby are bottom of the Championship so I don’t think they’ll fancy it, especially with us having just beaten Peterborough at the top of League One.

“We’ve got a chance.”

Elsewhere, Blackburn Rovers are at home to League One side Doncaster Rovers, who they faced in the first round of the Carabao Cup this season.

Burnley are also at home to third tier opposition in MK Dons.

The ties will be played on the weekend of January 8-11.
