Whilst a replay is the last thing both teams wanted, Gareth Ainsworth has stated that he will not disrespect Hartlepool United in the FA Cup.

The two sides will meet on Tuesday, November 16 at Adams Park following their 2-2 draw at the Victoria Ground on November 6.

The winners will play Lincoln City in the second round and Sincil Bank at the beginning of December.

Ainsworth said: “I’m not taking anything for granted.

“We have to get past Hartlepool and that was a tough test at the Victoria.

“They are a tough team, Anthony Sweeney has got the team playing well and they were really at us, they were in our faces and they got two good goals.

“I thought Hartlepool were outstanding.

“For a team that was in the National League last season, they didn’t look like that at all.

“They managed the situation well and they gave us a real good game which is no surprise for me, as we were doing that a few years ago to other teams.

“Hartlepool made it a proper cup tie.

“This will be a tough test at Adams Park.”

On potentially facing the Imps, he added: “In terms of Lincoln City, it’s always a nice place to go because of my playing days, as I spent two years there, but, we’re not thinking about them as we have got Hartlepool and I don’t want to disrespect them.”
