The 1st round ties were played on Saturday with the teams just behind us in our league all coming through, although it was a close call for Preston who were held to a 0-0 draw by Port Vale but won through 4-1 on penalties.

Wigan and Oldham are the other two sides sat three points behind us and both had narrow home wins, against Chesterfield and Lincoln respectively whilst struggling Wrexham recorded the biggest win of the day, winning 4-0 at home to Conference side York City.

There were fourteen ties in all and the winners will now be joined by Boston and Darlington who received byes in the 1st round with the 2nd round ties being played on Saturday 22nd October.
