Assistant manager Sam Collins “knew what was going to come” the longer the FA Cup second draw went on.
Hartlepool United were picked out by BBC reporter and two-time FA Cup winner Garth Crooks as the away side to visit Salford City.
The Northern Premier League side who boast five Manchester United legends as co-owners of the club will be seeking another Football League scalp on the weekend of December 4-7.
Salford City knocked out League Two Notts County on Friday night when the BBC TV cameras screened their first-round tie at Moor Lane.
Pools, who edged out Cheltenham Town on Saturday, know they will have it all to do at Salford next month.
“The longer the draw went, I knew what was going to come,” said Collins.
“It’s a brilliant draw and should be a great tie.
“Salford City did really well on Friday night – it will be a tough game and with all the class of 92 stuff around it I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a matched picked for TV coverage.”
Collins watched Salford’s cup upset against Notts County and said the result was no fluke.
“Not by a long shot,” said Ronnie Moore’s right-hand man. “Notts County were poor, but that should take nothing away from Salford, they were by far the better side.
“They played the better football and deserved the win.”
The Northern Premier League Premier Division part-timers took the lead through ex-Watford and Sheffield United star Danny Webber with Richie Allen’s superb goal settling the outcome.
Phil and Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes are part owners of Salford Ciy, with Singapore based billionaire Peter Lim owning the other 50 per cent.
Ronnie Moore and Collins side reached the second round thanks to a maiden Pools goal by summer signing Kudus Oyenuga.
