's players can't use Tranmere's pitch as an excuse when they go to Prenton Park in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned.

Tranmere beat Watford in a replay on Thursday night but only after the game had been called off once due to the state of the pitch. It cut up badly as the League One club beat their Premier League opponents, and Tranmere will be hoping to use it to their advantage again.

Solskjaer claimed that younger players have become 'lazy' because they are used to better pitches, and told his team to get on with the job in hand.
