Hartlepool United may not have been chosen for live coverage for their Capital One Cup against Bournemouth - not in this country anyway.

Sky Sports chose Luton Town v Stoke City for their live transmission tomorrow night with the second round tie between Barnsley and Everton being screened the following evening.

But Pools v Bournemouth is still getting the big treatment with six cameras coming to the Vic to record pictures for extended highlights.

The game is being shown live overseas with Norway’s TV2 beaming the tie to Scandinavia.

Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth are big news around the world already given their start in the Premier League and the cup clash at the Vic is an intriguing one.
