Sheffield United have been paired with Crewe Alexandra in the first round of the FA Cup.

United, who reached the semi-finals of the tournament last year, beating Colchester United, Cambridge United, Aston Villa, Fulham, Nottingham Forest and Charlton Athletic en route to their thrilling Wembley tussle with Hull City, face an away trip to Crewe next month.

Nigel Clough’s side claimed a 1-0 win at Crewe on Saturday after a second-half strike by midfielder Stefan Scougall.

Doncaster Rovers, who are just above the League One relegation zone, will travel to Conference South side Weston-Super-Mare.

Chesterfield, lying in tenth position in the third-tier of English football, head to either Weymouth or Braintree while Barnsley welcome League Two high fliers Burton Albion.

All ties are to be played from November 7-10.
