Tranmere's FA Cup 3rd round replay against Watford, which was due to be played at Prenton Park on Tuesday evening, has been postponed.

Earlier in the day, the Birkenhead club released a statement reassuring supporters that every effort was being taken to ensure that the fixture went ahead as planned, amid heavy rainfall caused by Storm Brendan.

But despite use of a protective cover on the pitch, the fixture has been pulled and the club have announced that the game will now be played at Prenton Park on Thursday January 23, kick off 7.45pm.

Tickets already purchased for the tie will remain valid for the rearranged fixture.

If a refund is required, supporters should visit the club store no later than the day before the new date of the match.

Customers who paid online can email with your surname and postcode and the club will be able to cancel and refund the tickets.

Tranmere Rovers club store will be open this evening from 5-7pm to process any refunds required today.
