Ronnie Moore's Hartlepool United side will be backed by 350 supporters away at Salford City in the FA Cup.

Pools fans snapped up all the tickets in just two hours of sales at Victoria Park on Wednesday morning.

Supporters were queuing at The Vic from as early as 6am to ensure they got their hands on tickets for the tie.

The second round match will be broadcast live on BBC 2 on Friday, December 4 (KO 7.55pm).

Moore has praised the "fantastic response" from the fans and says it is now up to his side to do their part.

“Even though we’re up and down on the pitch at the moment the fans have been brilliant and they have been the whole time I have been at the club," Moore told the club's website.

“They’re showing tremendous faith in us and now we have to give them what they want in return and bring some success on the field.

“They could have easily stayed at home or watched it in the pub but they want to get behind the team and do what they can to help us.

“It’s a terrific attitude from the fans and now it’s up to the players to show the same attitude.”

The club would advise any fans who did not manage to get a ticket not to travel as there will be no tickets available on the day of the game.
