Replay Date Announced For Tranmere Clash

Last updated : 03 January 2004 By Mark Heys
Bolton Wanderers draw against Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park in the FA Cup today means the teams will have to replay again at the Reebok Stadium and it has been confirmed that the fixture will take place on Tuesday 13th January 2004 kick off is 8pm.

The tie takes place on exactly the same date which Rovers defeated the Trotters four years ago in the League Cup Semi Final thanks to a singular goal from Clint Hill who is now with Stoke City.

Kevin Nolan earned Wanderers a draw today after Simon Haworth had given the Merseysiders the lead. Bolton manager Sam Allardyce will be unhappy to have to replay the game due to the extensive Premiership programme which Wanderers face, whilst Tranmere counterpart Brian Little will wonder just how his side didn't cause an upset after they squandered a number of clear cut chances.
