Pools will be rewarded for disposing of League One Gillingham with another away tie tie after their number was pulled out of the bag second during the draw at National League South side Hampton & Richmond ahead of their televised clash with Oldham Athletic.

First of all, Matthew Bates' side must focus on their replay, after they held the Gills to a goalless draw on Saturday.

Pools will welcome the Gills back to the Super 6 Stadium a week on Wednesday.
