Watford have successfully overturned the red card shown to forward Roberto Pereyra in Saturday's dramatic 3-3 draw against Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup on Saturday.

But the Hornets saw the decision revoked in a hearing on Tuesday in what is another blow for the reputation of VAR as the decision was not scrutinised at the time.
