Was the draw like the boxing day matches as in picking clubs close together in miles?

I mean why didnt Carlisle get Yeovil or Southend V Morecambe?
My my my, such a lot of guns around town and so few brains

There's a north/south divide in the first few rounds, i believe it was done as a cost cutting thing as the early rounds often produced low gates, consequently low revenues. A few closer more derby type games was thought better gate receipts plus lower costs for smaller clubs travelling.

A lower club at ER please so I'm not tempted to go as I have so much going on in my life atm. Three games coming up with long expensive trips to Swansea & Norfolk
It's conceivable I'll have to miss the next round anyway as we're in Shrewsbury for a wedding

Would like Derby and Boro to go through, the more games they play the better, even though Boro play mainly second string.

You got your wish with Boro' Ges, they played quite a strong team.
