IPSWICH Town are no nearer to knowing who they will play in the FA Cup after Chesterfield and Droyslden played out a 2-2 draw tonight.

The original tie had been abandoned due to bad weather, so the teams will now have to replay the tie after tonight's result.

The winner will play Ipswich in the third round at Portman Road on Saturday, January 3.
