Hartlepool United face a trip to League One Sheffield United in the Second Round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Having seen off Bradford City 5-0 in the first round, Colin Cooper’s men were in the draw which was made live on TV’s Soccer AM programme.

The Blades made it through to round two after defeating Scunthorpe United in a penalty shootout following a 0-0 draw at Glanford Park on Tuesday.

Last time Pools made the trip to Bramall Lane was at the end of 2012 when goals from Steve Howard (2) and Ritchie Humphreys helped them to a memorable 3-2 win.

Ties will be played in the week beginning October 7.
