CHORLEY will travel to Peterborough United in the second round of the FA Cup.

Manager Jamie Vermiglio said he wanted either the highest ranked or lowest ranked team in round two and has got his wish after being drawn against the League One leaders.

The Magpies reached the second round of the cup for the first time in 30 years thanks to their superb 3-2 victory against 10-man Wigan thanks to goals from Elliot Newby, Harry Cardwell and Connor Hall’s extra time winner.

Cardwell, who scored Chorley’s second goal, was at Harrogate Town which hosted the BBC cameras for last night’s draw.

The striker said it was toughest draw possible but admitted Chorley enjoy the underdog tag.

Speaking to Mark Chapman, he said: “I don’t think we could have asked for a tougher draw but I am really looking forward to it. It is just a shame that we didn’t get them at home.

“It would have been that tiny little bit of an advantage but it will be great, I’m looking forward to it.”

He added: “We’ll go in to it with no pressure on us and they will be expecting to win so we quite like the underdog title.”

It was back in 1990, the Magpies last reached round two thanks to a 2-1 win over Bury before eventually losing to 1-0 at Shrewsbury Town.

Before the tie, which will be played on the weekend of November 28-29, Chorley have three National League North fixtures to play and Vermiglio is hoping the heroics of the cup can be transferred to the league where they have yet to win a game.

The Magpies host Leamington on Saturday before trips to AFC Telford on Tuesday and Hereford the following weekend.

“To get the win, it is a proud moment for me, for the players and it is a moment they need to cherish and hopefully we can use it to kick on in the league,” he said.

Speaking immediately after the Wigan win, Vermiglio said he would have liked another North West club - or a team assistant boss Andy Preece used to play for but Chorley avoided Stockport, Blackpool and Carlisle.

“You want either the highest rank team in it to get a really good game or the lowest ranked team but would it be great to get another team with a link,” he said.

“I think the links with Wigan have been great,. It added a bit more spark and spice to the game when it is probably difficult to find the spark and spice when the supporters have not really been involved.

“Maybe one of Preecy ex teams or something like that would be great.

“But whoever we play we are going to try our very best against them and that is all we can ask of our football team.”
