Paul Mullin scored in extra time to lift League One side Tranmere Rovers over a much-weakened Watford in a FA Cup replay at Prenton Park on Thursday.
Tranmere runs out a 2-1 winner and gets a lucrative home date against struggling Manchester United on Sunday.
The pitch condition still wasn’t great nine days after heavy rains caused a postponement of the tie.
Tranmere out-attempted Watford 20-11 and had nearly 60 percent of the ball.

Kaylen Hinds scored for Watford, his first goal coming in his first match since 2017/18 when the ex-Arsenal academy man was with… Greuther Furth II.
Tranmere took the lead after Manny Monthe swept a ball home after a half-clearance from the box (Can anything be a half-clearance? Self-reporting to the language police).
Manager Nigel Pearson playing a bevy of youth players. The first team will now get nine more days off before a Feb. 1 visit from Everton.
Of course, they would’ve featured Sunday versus Manchester United in the fourth round.
Watford leveled the score on a grimy goal in the 18, but Mullin delivered the goods in the 104th minute.
