Pools’ FA Cup Tie Moved To Sunday

Emirates FA Cup, Hartlepool United

Pools’ FA Cup Second Round tie against Exeter City or Cambridge United will be played on Sunday 1st December (2pm kick-off) as part of the BBC’s Final Score coverage.

Dave Challinor’s men reached Round Two of the competition after thumping Yeovil Town 4-1 at Huish Park last Tuesday and their reward is an away tie against League Two opposition.

Exeter and Cambridge will replay their tie at St James’ Park on Tuesday evening after being locked at 1-1 during their first meeting at The Abbey Stadium last weekend.

Whoever comes through the replay will host Pools on Sunday 1st December as one of six ties moved to allow for coverage on the BBC’s live results show.
