Tranmere, South Liverpool
It will be interesting to see how they are going to fit in the cameras at Marine. It will be impossible to give the camera an elevated view unless they hire one of the back gardens in Rossett Road.
Taken this afternoon - camera positions on halfway (left) and at far end:

Good win for the Mariners!

How did the TV crew get access to the gantry on the halfway line? Through someone's back garden on Jubilee Road (?)
There's an alleyway between those houses and that side of the ground. But magnifying that photo shows a ladder against the perimeter wall, leading up to the gantry through a hole in the roof.

Both Marine vs Tottenham H. and Chorley vs Derby County are almost certainly going to be selected for live TV coverage in the Third Round.

Strangely this will be 20 year old Marine keeper Bayleigh Passant's second involvement in two years in a third round FA Cup tie with Spurs. He was on the bench for Tranmere in the 2019 tie when a strong Spurs side squeaked home 7-0..

A memorable night in any case (Kane came on as a sub at 6-0.... "Spurs sending for the cavalry" as one local reporter quipped) but, as Bayleigh didn't get on, hopefully they won't be repeating any of that on the telly.

You're forgetting Man. Utd v Watford.

Also Crawley v Leeds is a banker I think, and perhaps Stockport v Scum.

JT deleted the Oftenscore6 post on the FA Cup thread, to say there was only one place in the fourth round guaranteed for a team outside the top two divisions. Still, I don't think the match in question, Cheltenham Town v Mansfield Town will be anywhere close to the top of the broadcasters' lists

Maybe, but Aston Villa vs Liverpool more likely to be selected in view of the score in the league match earlier in the season.
No maybe about Man U being on TV. It's pretty much guaranteed. How many of their FA Cup ties have not to been televised in the last 20 years?

Cue replays of Iain Dowie's wonderful header from a corner in the League Cup I think, then head in hands as he realised he was at the wrong end of the pitch for that. :)

He also broke his ankle that night.
