League Two side Tranmere Rovers host Tottenham at Prenton Park in the Emirates FA Cup third round this evening.
This is the first meeting between Tranmere and Tottenham in any competition since 2001-02 – Tottenham won 4-0 at Prenton Park in the League Cup third round, and 4-0 at White Hart Lane in the FA Cup fifth round.
Tranmere are looking to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time since 2003-04, when they beat Premier League side Bolton in the third round.
Spurs have progressed from 17 of their past 18 FA Cup ties against opponents from a lower league. The only exception in that run was a 1-2 loss at Leeds in 2012-13.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.15pm with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
