Southport 0-2 Tranmere Rovers: Connor Jennings volleys earn tie against Spurs


Connor Jennings knocks in his second volley of the game moments before the break

Tranmere Rovers booked an FA Cup tie at home to Tottenham as two volleys from Connor Jennings knocked out sixth-tier Southport in their second-round replay.

After a 1-1 draw in their initial meeting at Prenton Park, Jennings put the League Two visitors in front early on, with a fine dipping effort.

He side-footed in another from Jake Caprice’s cross just before half-time.

Part-time Southport – ranked 59 places lower in the football pyramid – rallied after half-time but could not score.
