DARLINGTON’S FA Cup second-round tie at Bristol Rovers has been selected for live television coverage.

The Quakers’ game at the Memorial Stadium will take place on Sunday, November 29 (1.30pm) and be screened live on the BBC.

Darlington booked their place in round two with a 2-1 win over League One side Swindon Town last weekend.

This season’s FA Cup run has already earned the club some much-needed revenue, with their first-round victory taking their cumulative receipts from this year’s competition to £35,347, and the BBC’s decision to screen this month’s second-round game will guarantee them another welcome payday.
