National League North side Chorley's reward for their victory over a depleted Derby was a home tie with Premier League Wolves.

Chorley manager Jamie Vermiglio told BBC Sport: "That's what we really wanted, Premier League opposition, great.

"And there's a bit of history because, in 1986, Chorley played against Wolves at home and beat them 3-0, so we just need to do that again."
