Highlights: Tranmere Rovers 2-2 Wycombe Wanderers

Tranmere and Wycombe will have to do it all over again at Adams Park after their FA Cup first round tie ended level.

Kieron Morris gave Rovers an early lead but a curling Joe Jacobson free-kick ensured the sides were all-square at half time.

Alex Samuel then put the visitors in front 10 minutes into the second half but the in-form Morris stroked home his second of the match 23 minutes from time to secure a replay.

Winger Morris was Tranmere's best attacking threat throughout the match and when he held off his marker three minutes into the contest, he drilled the ball into the bottom corner.

That finish was superseded by Jacobson's dead ball strike, expertly bent into top corner left-footed.

Poor defending from Rovers allowed Samuel to poke the Chairboys back in front from inside the box, but the hosts were the better attacking team and deservedly drew level again through the impressive Morris.

Tranmere had a chance to snatch victory at the death, but made a hash of their counter attack and had to settle for a replay.
