TRANMERE exited the FA Cup at the first round stage after Jamie Reid's last-gasp winner gave League One Stevenage a 4-3 win at the Lamex.

Jordan Roberts opened the scoring for Stevenage before the League Two strugglers hit back through Luke Norris and Rob Apter.

Reid equalised from the spot and former Rovers skipper Kane Hemmings bundled home with 10 minutes left. Tranmere’s Kieron Morris dramatically levelled but Reid had the final say.

Roberts headed in Elliott List’s chipped cross inside four minutes.

Rovers levelled after Kane Smith’s foul on Norris, who squeezed in the penalty via the post.

In the second half, Apter fired an unstoppable drive into the top corner but Rovers were not ahead for long.

Norris was penalised for a push on Carl Piergianni inside the area and Reid sent Luke McGee the wrong way.

In a frantic finale, Hemmings was on the end of Piergianni’s header to push Boro ahead before Morris headed in a 90th-minute leveller.

But Reid was alive to tap home a rebound in the ninth minute of stoppage time, before Rovers’ unused goalkeeping substitute Joe Murphy was red-carded.
