Soccer-Storm Brendan postpones Watford's FA Cup replay with Tranmere Rovers

Watford's FA Cup third round replay against Tranmere Rovers that was scheduled to be played on Tuesday has been indefinitely postponed due to a waterlogged pitch following heavy rainfall from Storm Brendan, the two clubs said. "Both clubs were in regular contact with each other, the referee and the Football Association over the past two days, discussing the options available," Watford said in a statement https://www.watfordfc.com/teams/first-team/fa-cup-tranmere-replay-postponed.

"However, following a pitch inspection this afternoon, the referee decided the match unfortunately could not go ahead." Watford were forced to replay the game at Prenton Park after the first match at Vicarage Road against the League One (third tier) side earlier this month ended 3-3. The date for the rescheduled match is yet to be decided.
