Tranmere 2-1 Oxford Utd highlights

Tranmere came from behind to beat League Two rivals Oxford and set up a meeting with Premier League Swansea in the FA Cup third round.

Alfie Potter put the U's ahead on the half-hour mark with a glancing header past goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams.

But Rovers equalised five minutes later when Kayode Odejayi scrambled home Cole Stockton's low cross.

Joe Riley shot wide for Oxford after the break and they were made to pay as Max Power clinched the winner.

The 21-year-old netted his ninth goal this season with a powerful drive past Ryan Clarke.

League Two strugglers Tranmere, who are above the relegation zone on goal difference, will now welcome Swansea - ninth in the top tier - to Prenton Park on Saturday, 3 January.
