Pools were handed another home tie as a reward for seeing off Bolton Wanderers in the third round of the competition in midweek with Graeme Lee’s side now set to come up against Charlton later this month.

Matty Daly’s goal was enough to seal victory for Pools over Wanderers and fans have already taken to social media about the prospect of Pools claiming another League One scalp in the quarter finals.

The Addicks came past MK Dons in round three of the competition and Johnnie Jackson’s side are sure to provide another stern test for Pools.
