The first round of the FA Cup throws up a mouth-watering contest on Sunday morning, as League One leaders Portsmouth travel to National League table-toppers Chesterfield.


Spireites boss Paul Cook will have extra motivation as he looks to get one over on his former club.

He left Chesterfield to take charge at Fratton Park in 2015, before leaving Pompey in similar circumstances to join Wigan a few years later - in a move that has left him fairly unpopular with fans of the South Coast club.

His side will certainly have the belief that they can cause a shock. They have scored 43 goals in 17 games to establish themselves as frontrunners for promotion back to the EFL, and found the net five times as they beat Kettering Town in the last round.

Sunday looks likely to be their biggest test of the season, however, with new Portsmouth boss John Mousinho currently on course to succeed where Cook failed by taking them back to the Championship.

Pompey have not been beaten over 90 minutes this term, but this is the FA Cup - so you certainly cannot rule out an upset. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Chesterfield v Portsmouth on TV and online.
