FA Cup second-round draw: Non-league Chorley travel to League One leaders Peterborough

National League North’s Chorley will travel to League One leaders Peterborough in the second round of the FA Cup.

Chorley – one of 14 non-League teams left in this season’s competition – beat Wigan on Saturday and will now face Darren Ferguson’s high-flying side for a place in the third round.

National League side King’s Lynn Town secured a place in the second round for the first time in their short history with a 1-0 win over League Two club Port Vale at the weekend, and they have been rewarded with a trip to 2008 winners Portsmouth.
