Fans gave their reaction as the six FA Cup Second Round TV selections are revealed for BBC and ITV coverage..

@one_eye_looking: Anyone take the 1/150 odds on Salford being on again? Surely they’ll have their own channel soon……..

@brad_little11: Perfect game to boycott, protest, anything. #ytfc

@LTFC_Dave: Someone tell me the logic behind picking Salford over Kidderminster v Halifax

@freddielofc: Boreham Wood vs St Albans could potentially be the lowest ever viewed televised match in English football history

@FeedTheSpud: Another Sunday 12:15 kick off up North (if we clear Wednesday, obviously). Clearly no thought or consideration of travelling fans go into these picks! fs. #pafc

@WritingWrongsUK: Salford? Glad I’m sat down. The shock would’ve overwhelmed me otherwise.

@ScaleSilver49: Salford again? Surely after only 24 fans in London they don’t need deserve it

@Dmasters1: Salford again?

@JDS05111: What a surprise can’t wait to watch Salford and their 24 fans on TV, again.

@alwrufc: Salford Vs Chesterfield???? Odd selection. If it was the other way round it would be more understandable.

@Wakefield__: That has to be up there as the worst second round line up in years.

@Jake_Moore89: Because everyone wants to watch Salford v Chesterfield ffs

@Gandermonium: Wait? Salford have a live TV game? Surely not!!

@whitts56: In truth there wasn’t many outstanding ties to pick from. Again ITV pin hopes on Sheffield Wednesday and Salford. So if they do make it through no doubt itv again will pick Salford no matter what tie or Man Utd. Itv should follow bbc & have there Friday game on the main channel.

@whitts56: Very surprised @Pompey v @HarrogateTown got overlooked. Think that game has potential for goals and probably more entertaining

@blakepfc: Salford on TV? Never.

Three things guaranteed in life
Salford on TV
Weird obsession with what is, let’s face it, just a small mid table L2 club

@LaurenceB20: Salford has been picked duely because there playing non league Chesterfield as you can see all live ties are non league sides

@newhallsaddler: What a suprise Salford AGAIN do they have an independent tv contract?

@HarryBscfc: Salford again ffs

@SuttonJared: Wow. Salford have been picked for TV. I did not expect that. I am very shocked.

@MButch1984: Shock all the clubs in lower league who need tv rights to keep them afloat and they hand another one to a wealthy league two club πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

@Stevros1988: Salford becoming the new Man United, on ITV every single round. Sigh.

@SpencerH2003: Certain things guaranteed in life, one of them is Salford picked for TV, whoever they get drawn against.

@treble99united: This obsession with Salford is plain weird. Not even their own fans care enough to watch them

@TheDB30: ITV’s love in for Salford is bigger than it was for Leeds πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
