Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Newcastle United - some of the names Hartlepool United fans are hoping to draw in the FA Cup third round after Lincoln City win

It was another special afternoon for Hartlepool United in the FA Cup.

Sunday, 5th December 2021, 11:00 am

Pools saw off League One opposition for the second successive round in the competition as Graeme Lee got his tenure as Pools’ new manager off to a winning start.

Lewis Fiorini’s own goal was all that separated the two sides as Pools can now look forward to a potential tie with Premier League opposition in the third round in January.

And Pools fans have been giving their reaction to the result at Sincil Bank and who they would like in the third round in Monday’s draw.
