Ilkeston Town earn plum FA Cup draw with Hartlepool United

Ilkeston Town will host Hartlepool United in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup.


United, managed by Dave Challinor, are currently top of the National League after four games and include former Ilkeston FC midfielder Mark Shelton in their ranks.


Ilkeston earned their place in the fourth qualifying round with wins over Shepshed Dynamo, Coventry Sphinx, Hanley Town and Alvechurch so far.


With the Hartlepool tie being at home, it also means Robins fans will be able to attend the game but no visiting fans will be allowed due to United's 'elite' status.


The match will take place on Saturday, October 24.
