Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Neil Danns expects a tough Emirates FA Cup third-round tie away at Premier League side Watford, but he insists that he and his team-mates have to relish the challenge.

Micky Mellon’s men head to Vicarage Road to face a Hornets outfit who have picked up ten points from four games under new boss Nigel Pearson.

And Danns, 37, admits it will be a difficult task in Hertfordshire, however the Liverpudlian wants Rovers to show what they are about against top-flight opposition.

The Guyana international spoke to TRFC’s Club website ahead of the visit to Watford this weekend.

Danns said: “It’s nice to be in the third-round but we’re under no illusions that it’s going to be tough.

“I played under Nigel Pearson at Leicester so I know how he sets up his teams and it’s obvious to see the run of form that they have had lately, it’s going to be tough but we have to go there, give it our all and enjoy the day.

“There’s loads of talent so we understand they have some talented players, but it is a challenge that we have to relish.

“You’ve seen some teams even in lower leagues than us get giant killings, so it’s not out of the ordinary that we can’t do that, and the lads will be going there looking to relish the challenge.”
