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.

Stourbridge, of the seventh tier, have been drawn at home against National League side Eastleigh.

Chesham, who compete at the same level as Stourbridge, have been rewarded for the upset they sprung in winning 1-0 at Bristol Rovers with a trip to either Aldershot or Bradford.

Whitehawk, in the second round for the first time, will face Dagenham or Morecambe away.

Their fellow sixth-tier sides Brackley and Maidenhead have also been given away ties pending replays. The former will play Barnet if they beat Newport, the latter Exeter if they beat Port Vale.

There are home ties for National League duo Grimsby and Welling against Shrewsbury and Carlisle respectively.

Fifth-tier colleagues Altrincham go to Colchester, while there will be an all-National League tie if Braintree beat Oxford, with the winner hosting Forest Green.

Elsewhere, Bury are at Rochdale in a Lancashire derby, 2008 winners Portsmouth host Accrington, Millwall host Wycombe and Sheffield United welcome Mansfield or Oldham to Bramall Lane.

Peterborough face Luton at home, Doncaster play Cambridge away and Yeovil and Stevenage meet at Huish Park.
