3rd-tier Tranmere beat Watford to set up FA Cup tie with Manchester United

Tranmere Rovers, who are currently fighting to avoid relegation into League Two, turfed in-form Watford out of the FA Cup on Thursday.

The Birkenhead-based club will now face Manchester United in the competition’s fourth round after Paul Mullin’s near-post header completed a 2-1 extra-time victory.

Watford manager Nigel Pearson made plenty of changes to his squad for the rescheduled tie, and his side was outmuscled and outfought on Tranmere’s pockmarked pitch.

More to come.
