Much better from Derby. Liam Thompson feeds Bardell on the counter attack. Derby's corner is cleared, but tempo and involvement of wingbacks a real difference.

Urwin received treatment but is okay to continue.
Isaac Hutchinson plays in Cameron Cresswell, who goes down in the area under Matt Urwin's challenge. Penalty appeared to be given, but Friend changed his mind. Good goalkeeping, but Derby threatening.
Connor Hall gets his first sniff of goal, bringing the ball down in the area. But he is denied and thew ball is cleared.
Early throw for Chorley into the Derby area comes to nothing. Derby goal kick.
Premier League ref Kevin Friend gets us underway. Chorley kick off!
Players entering the field! Here we go!
I'm back, flask in-hand! Just realised five subs are allowed, whivh makes my life a living hell! No replays, extra time and, if needed, penalties!
Popping to make a cuppa before kick off! Just over 15 minutes to go. Who is excited?!
Wassall is not at Victory Park today; Pat Lyons is leading the team today. His team has an average age of just over 19, with up to 14 debuts if he makes three subs.
Connor Hall and Harry Cardwell will be a threat up front for Chorley, after victories over Wigan and Peterborough. Hall scored in both games.
EIGHT of Chorley's ground staff stayed overnight to make sure the game goes ahead. Minus five temperatures and snow forced a pitch inspection, but we are good to go!
The pitch at Victory Park has been causing problems this week, too. Should be a very interesting one...
It really is a shame that COVID has impacted FA Cup third round weekend in such a way, and I'm sure Chorley would be desperate for a packed house to roar them on. But what an occassion for them!
While we wait for kick off - a little over 30 minutes to go - check out our transfer blog. Sergio Ramos has been heavily linked with a Real Madrid exit, here's what Zinedine Zidane has had to say on the matter.
While Derby's form isn't really relevant coming into this one because of their situation, Chorley's certainly is. It has been a mixed bag in their last six games; they've wom three, lost two and drawn one.
Here is the Derby team. Darren Wassall is leading them, and former Liverpool youngster Bobby Duncan is certainly one to watch. Aston Villa's kids made a fist of it against Liverpool last night, and theoretically, Chorley shouldn't provide as big a test. Equally, though, they should really fancy their chances.
Chorley have made three changes today! Here is how the hosts will line up...
The magic of the FA Cup is perhaps a little tempered today; the game was almost called off after a COVID-19 outbreak at Derby. Most if not all of their first team, including boss Wayne Rooney, will be absent. No fans will surely have an impact, too. But they'll still smell an upset!
