Andy Fleming scores the first ever goal at the Globe Arena against Coventry back in August 2010.

Morecambe will travel to Coventry in the second round of the FA Cup, if they see off Rochdale in their first round replay.

The Shrimps and Dale drew 1-1 at the Globe Arena on Saturday and both sides now know they have a trip to Mark Robins’ League 1 side to play for when they try again at Spotland.

The club’s number 12 ball was pulled out of the hat by John Wark in the draw at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

The Shrimps upset Coventry 2-0 in the first ever game at the Globe Arena, the only ever meeting between the two sides, a league cup first round tie back in August 2010.

The Sky Blues have former Shrimps star Carl Baker in their ranks.

The tie would be played on the weekend of December 1 and 2.
