Notts County fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Boreham Wood on Saturday (November 5). They will replay on Tuesday, November 15 with the second round scheduled for December 2-5.

Posh have played Notts County twice in the FA Cup, both times away from home. Most famously a single Robbie Cooke goal was enough to give Fourth Division Posh a 1-0 win at Meadow Lane in a fourth round tie in January 1981.

Notts were heading for the old Division Two title that season under the management of Jimmy Sirrell. Posh went on to lose at home to Manchester City in the fifth round.
