The 1-0 first round replay win at League One side Wycombe Wanderers set up a second round tie at another third tier outfit in Lincoln City next month.

Mark Cullen’s fifth goal of the season was enough to separate the sides as Pools can now look forward to visiting the LNER Stadium on Saturday, December 4 (3pm kick-off).

Tuesday night’s win also banked the club £22,629 in prize money with a further £34,000 up for grabs for winning in the second round.

@ShinPadNP: “Make sure you get the full 20% allowance for the Lincoln game. I suspect we'll need it as there'll be a bumper crowd!”

@Jamiemwood: “Give Sweeney a permanent contract.”

@Poolieboy1Les1: “Get in there lads brilliant result. Well done everyone. The most important thing is we have another win away from home. Something that we can build on in league matches.”

@Dan_Nich27: “What a performance! Lidds was absolutely superb. Nobody played less than a 7 out of 10. Rode our luck at times, but a great away performance. Pools winning away on a Tuesday night, can only be the FA Cup!”

@theellerton: “Get the contract out, put it on the table, let him sign it, let him write whatever numbers he wants to put on there – given what he's done since he's come in – and let him sign the contract and go. Sweeney’s at the wheel, man.”
