Chris Brewer, Head of Media and Ticketing, said: “Chelsea is a massive incentive for both Notts County and ourselves and we would love to see as many Posh fans inside the stadium as possible to get behind the team. The prices for the replay have been heavily reduced and everyone that purchases tickets will get a chance to buy tickets for the next round in a priority system.”

Posh drew 2-2 at Notts County in the original tie last Sunday (December 4). Posh striker Lee Angol was sent off in that game and his three-match ban for violent conduct has been confirmed by the FA.

Angol, who will be fined by the club, will miss the League One games against Chesterfield (home, December 10) and Charlton (December 17) and the FA Cup replay with Notts County.

Posh boss Grant McCann said: “Lee made a mistake and he knows it. He has apologised and he will learn from it. The club has a rule regarding players who get sent off so a fine will be issued.”
