The teams are in and Chesterfield starts with Ryan Boot in goal as Everton don't want its loanee cup-tied for later rounds. Will Grigg starts up front as expected, with Liam Mandeville loading the bullets from behind. Jamie Grimes captains the side from center-back. For Leyton Orient, top scorer Ruel Sotiriou starts up front, with captain Idris El Mizouni also in from the off as expected in central midfield alongside Jordan Brown. Adam Thompson appears on the bench for the first time this season after injury.
Chesterfield vs Leyton Orient: preview
The FA Cup is all about the upsets and Chesterfield vs Leyton Orient has as good a chance as any second-round game to provide one today. The Spireites have decent FA Cup pedigree, having reached the semi-finals in 1997, and currently top the fifth-tier National League after a spectacular start to the season. Orient, meanwhile, is still adapting to life in third-tier League One and may prefer to focus on its league form. Definitely one to keep an eye on this afternoon.
When Chesterfield took Premier League Middlesbrough to a semi-final replay 26 years ago, it represented one of the best FA Cup stories of the 90s, with current Everton boss Sean Dyche scoring a memorable penalty. Now, the Spireites are enjoying another fine showing in the world's oldest surviving cup competition, having disposed of another League One side, Portsmouth, in the previous round. Paul Cook's side is running away with the fifth tier after agonisingly missing out on promotion via a play-off penalty shootout to Notts County, with Will Grigg on fire and terrifying defences again after a few seasons in the wilderness.
Orient, meanwhile, hasn't won a league game since mid-October after establishing themselves in League One following last season's superb promotion from League Two. Richie Wellens demands his side plays attacking football and in Ruel Sotiriou, who scored one of his seven goals in all competitions in the previous round's 3-1 defeat of Carlisle, he has a forward to execute his plans. Midfielder George Moncur offers a smooth midfielder, but how much of Wellens regular squad will start remains to be seen as it seeks what would be just a second third-round appearance in a decade.
