Betting Tip: Salford City +1.00 @ 8/5 with bet365

Hartlepool avoided an FA Cup banana skin ten days ago when drawing 1-1 at Salford City, although this BT Sport-televised replay might not be the straightforward home win the odds suggest.

Ronnie Moore’s team are struggling at the moment, with United having made the long trip back from Fratton Park on Saturday night after a 4-0 whipping which means it has been three straight defeats in League Two.

Indeed, Pools could yet be sucked into a relegation battle this term, with only four teams sitting below them in the table and the pressure will be on the Football League side for the visit of a Salford City side hoping to earn a historic place in the third round of the competition.

The winner of this tie gets the chance to entertain Derby County and Salford have had a timely break ahead of the clash after having a blank weekend thanks to already being out of the FA Trophy.

It should be pointed out that the Reds have won nine of their ten matches away from home this season in the Northern Premier League. This winning mentality on the road should serve them well and we’re happy to side with Salford on the handicap.
