Wycombe Wanderers 1-2 Tranmere Rovers (aet): Visitors reach FA Cup second round

Tranmere beat Wycombe in extra-time of their FA Cup first-round replay at Adams Park and will play eighth-tier Chichester City at home in round two.

Kieron Morris sent the visitors through with a 115th-minute winner.

Rovers played for almost 80 minutes with 10 men after Kane Wilson was sent off for a foul on Jack Grimmer just before half-time.

Anthony Stewart put League One leaders Wycombe in front soon afterwards, firing in after a goalmouth scramble, while Nick Freeman also hit the crossbar for the hosts.

But Morgan Ferrier's cool finish after the break sent the tie to extra-time and, with a penalty shootout looming, Morris won it for Tranmere with a low left-footed shot from 20 yards.

Before the late clincher, Tranmere goalkeeper Scott Davies made saves from Scott Kashket, Alex Samuel and Josh Parker as Wycombe - who won 2-0 at Prenton Park in a league fixture on Sunday - pressed for a winner.
