The first leg in this tie was quite remarkable. Watford were in total control of the game at 3-0 after 34 minutes, before a second-half comeback saw Tranmere draw 3-3 and force this replay at Prenton Park.
The replay was then postponed due to the state of Tranmere’s pitch.
Rovers have won back to back promotions in the last two seasons but face a battle to stay in League One this season. They’re down in 21st place and scrapping for every point so they could do without this replay. However, a TV game in the fifth round awaits against either Manchester United or Wolves.
Watford have been going great guns under new manager Nigel Pearson and he would have been furious with the collapse in the first game. This means a midweek trip to Merseyside for a tricky game in front of what will be a big crowd. Watford lost their first match in eight games on Tuesday night, losing 2-1 to Aston Villa with the last kick of the game. They’re likely to rest most of their first 11 tonight but I’m still expecting them to finally get past League One Tranmere and book their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Another Tranmere vs Watford prediction for this game is going to be Watford to win and BTTS, as Tranmere are certainly capable of getting on the scoresheet.
Bet on both teams to score in tonight’s Tranmere vs Watford FA Cup third-round replay.
I predict Watford will win this match at odds of 4/6.
Troy Deeney might be rested for this match, along with Deulofeu.
Bet on Tranmere’s Paul Mullin to score anytime at 7/2 with Betfred.
