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


Pools knocked out opposition from League One for the second straight round of the competition as Graeme Lee got off to a winning start as Pools’ new manager.

Lewis Fiorini’s goal was all that separated the two sides, as Pools can now expect a possible tie with the Premier League opposition in the third round in January.

And Pools fans have reacted to Sincil Bank’s result and who they’d like in the third round of Monday’s draw.
