Setting the scene...
Tranmere Rovers’ Emirates FA Cup journey begins on Saturday afternoon when Wycombe Wanderers visit Prenton Park in the First-Round, kick-off 3pm.
Rovers reached the third-round of the competition last term, which saw them earn a lucrative home tie against Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur after wins over Oxford City and Southport.
Micky Mellon’s men are aiming build upon last Saturday’s 3-1 away victory at MK Dons, where Rushian Hepburn-Murphy’s hat-trick secured three points in Sky Bet League One.
Rovers play Gareth Ainsworth’s Chairboys twice in eight days, with the two teams meeting in the third tier on the Wirral next Sunday lunchtime.
Evan Gumbs, Mark Ellis, Harvey Gilmour, Jordan Ponticelli and Ollie Banks are all absentees for the cup tie with Wycombe.
Darren Potter is recovering from bruised ribs, while Calum Woods and Morgan Ferrier are back in training at The Campus and could be available for selection.
