Sean O’Driscoll comments after the Hartlepool match:

‘Hartlepool is a difficult place to come to, they proved that when they knocked Rotherham out in the first round. And it was a very cold night.

‘But we did a very professional job to earn a place in the next round. We did everything right and took our chances well.

‘The big disappointment from my point of view is that our right-back Theo Streete has a groin injury and that’s not good news for us. We’ll have a look at the injury, but hopefully it won’t keep him out for long.

‘The players worked hard for the win, and hopefully the performance will carry on into the league and help us make progress there as well.’

The draw for the next round takes place this Saturday.
