Salford City will hope for a repeat of their FA Cup first-round heroics having been drawn to face Hartlepool at home in the second round.

The seventh-tier side - owned by Manchester United's 'Class of 92' - set up the tie by overcoming Hartlepool's League Two colleagues Notts County 2-0 at Moor Lane on Friday.

The lowest-ranked side left in the competition are eighth-tier Northwich Victoria, who will travel to Northampton if they emerge triumphant from their replay against Boreham Wood.
