Tranmere are finally back in the FA Cup proper after a two-year absence courtesy of a 3-1 win at Halifax in the fourth and final qualifying round on Saturday.
Goals from Connor Jennings, James Norwood and Liam Ridehalgh sealed a comfortable win for Rovers in a game that also saw Scott Davies save a first half Adam Morgan penalty. Micky Mellon’s side created a host of chances and should have won by a far greater margin.
Victory means that Tranmere will finally return to the FA Cup proper and go in to tonight’s draw for the first round. Rovers can face clubs from League One downwards, which include the likes of Blackburn Rovers, Charlton, Coventry, Wigan and old foe such as Oldham Athletic.
Three teams from the eighth tier of English football will be in the draw, which takes place at 7pm tonight live on BBC 2. Tranmere will be ball number 49 in the draw.
