The first round draw for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy has been made and defending champions Chesterfield have been handed at home tie against League One Oldham.

The Spireites defeated Swindon Town in last year's final, 2-0 and will look to keep hold of the trophy which they won for the first time in their history at Wembley.
