The teams are in and Tranmere go with a strong-looking side, captained by Kane Hemmings. Elliott Nevitt, top scorer last season starts up front for Rovers, with Reec McAlear and Ethan Bristow also in from the off.

Tranmere vs Newcastle
Back in his spiritual home on the Wirral since the beginning of last season, Mickey Mellon guided Tranmere to a ninth-placed finish in League Two last term. Though Rovers were second at the turn of the year, 2021/22 still represented a positive season. Though a 3-0 victory against Gillingham is their only league with this season, disposing of Accrington in the previous round of the EFL Cup 12-11 on penalties, the busy play of striker Elliott Nevitt up front is proof Tranmere will be no pushover.
An effervescent Newcastle took two points off Manchester City at the weekend, Allan Saint-Maximin sashaying his way through Pep Guardiola’s defence with little more than a Gallic shrug to secure a 3-3 draw. Sure, Nick Pope was probably man of the match but Eddie Howe has breathed new life into the Magpies since his arrival to such an extent, a cup run to end a 67-year wait for silverware could be just what Tyneside needs.
Can the Magpies take the first step towards a trophy today and book their place in the draw for the third round of the Carabao Cup? Here’s how to watch a Tranmere vs Newcastle live stream wherever you are.
“We had to really grind out the win. It was a tough end to the game. We had to be physical with our defending. That last part of the game pleased me the most.
“We take set-pieces where they come. They were well-worked and planned. Tranmere were committed and we had to match that. Credit to the players because they did. The two goals came from Kieran Trippier’s quality of deliveries.
“We’re really happy to get through. We had to pick a team we felt could get through the tie off the back of a game we felt we had given everything. We had to stand up and be counted.
We played fantastically against Manchester City but it was a different challenge tonight. Coming to places like this is always difficult.
“We work hard every day in training on set-pieces and attacking them. Chris Wood deserves that goal. He works so hard in training every day.
“It would mean everything [to have a cup run] but we have come so far in a short period of time. We need to be patient, take it a step at a time and keep building as a team.
