TRANMERE’S FA Cup first-round visit to Braintree in Essex looks like a “banana skin” to manager Ronnie Moore – and he won’t be surprised if the game is picked out for live TV coverage.
Braintree, managed by former West Ham United FA Cup winner Alan Devonshire, currently lie in the bottom half of the Conference National. Their tiny Cressing Road ground has a capacity of just 4,202.
Moore said: “It is one of those banana skin games, that I as the manager of a League One club does not want and one the TV people love.”
The first-round ties are due to be played around the weekend of Saturday, November 3.
