Oxford United 2-2 Tranmere Rovers

Jason Koumas's curled equaliser earned Tranmere Rovers a replay against Oxford United in the FA Cup second round.

Cole Stockton broke the deadlock for the visitors when he flicked home Shamir Fenelon's left-wing cross.

Tyrone Barnett struck twice in five minutes for Oxford, heading home his first from Danny Rose's corner.

Barnett sealed his second from Joe Riley's pass before Koumas hit a superb effort from long range to level.
