ACCRINGTON Stanley have been drawn at home to Tranmere Rovers in the first round of the FA Cup.
Stanley were beaten by Tranmere in the first round in 2008 after a replay.
They also faced the League One side in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in 2010 and 2011.
In 2010 they won at Prenton Park but were then kicked out of the competition for fielding the ineligible Ray Putterill.
A year later a home tie had to be abandoned because of a serious head injury to Tom Bender, before Tranmere won the rearranged match.
The FA Cup first round match will be played on the weekend of November 9 and 10.
