Blackpool's frustration at requiring an FA Cup replay

The Seasiders, should they beat Solihull Moors in their replay, will face Premier League giants Arsenal at Bloomfield Road.

Terry McPhillips' men have of course already faced the Gunners this season, having taken them all the way in the Carabao Cup earlier this season, eventually going down to a 2-1 defeat.

Blackpool drew 0-0 with Solihull on Friday, meaning a replay will be required to determine which side makes it through to the third round.

The replay is expected to take place next Tuesday, although this is yet to be confirmed and is subject to TV scheduling.

Fleetwood, meanwhile, play their second round clash against Guiseley tonight, with the game being screened live on BT Sport.

Tonight’s draw was conducted by Ruud Gullit and Paul Ince from Stamford Bridge, the home of FA Cup holders Chelsea.
