They reached the second round with a 2-0 win against Hitchin Town on Sunday.

The BBC have announced Dan Walker will present the live match from Solihull, with expert analysis from former Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin and ex-England women and Arsenal defender Alex Scott.

Simon Brotherton will be joined in the commentary box by former England and West Ham defender Matthew Upson.

With Blackpool fans continuing to boycott their games over Oyston's running of the club, many will be concerned at how much the 84-year-old could personally pocket from the televised game.

Each club is paid £75,000 for being selected for TV coverage.

The winner of the second round tie will also receive £54,000, with Pool having already pocketed £36,000 for their 3-2 win against Exeter City in the first round.

Blackpool will also receive 45 per cent of the gate receipts.
