FA Cup: Moore wary of 'big and strong' Posh

Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore is refusing to consider a possible draw against Premiership opposition despite being handed a home tie against lower league opposition in the second round of the FA Cup.

Rovers will host League Two Peterborough tomorrow after they completed a 4-2 win over non-league Woking in the first round although they almost squandered a three-goal lead after being hauled back to 3-2 before Chris Greenacre's late goal confirmed the victory.

The Wirral club are third in Coca-Cola League One, just one point behind second-placed Scunthorpe, and are on a fine run of form with four straight wins in the league.

However, Moore refuses to look beyond tomorrow's game and a possible clash with any of the glamour clubs.

Instead the former Rotherham boss warns his side against the complacency that cost them against Darlington in the Football Trophy and allowed Woking to get back into the game.

He told the club's official website, www.tranmererovers.co.uk: 'Everybody loves the FA Cup, especially the third round when all the big clubs come in.

'But we've got a tough game, Peterborough are on a good run. We're the side that has been breaking a lot of tremendous runs.

'We beat Millwall, Brighton and Blackpool and they had all been on good runs.

'We have to prepare properly and make sure the lads don't think it will be a walkover because they are a second division side.

'We had that with Darlington and we cannot afford it again.

'We had it a little bit with Woking when we were 3-0 up and next minute they were back in the game.'

Peterborough are fifth in League Two and have already claimed victory over higher-league opposition, progressing to round two with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Rotherham.

The Posh have won five games on their travels this season although they went down into a 1-0 defeat against Bristol Rovers in their last match in the FA Trophy in midweek, they had unbeaten in six games before then.

Although they have only scored seven goals in away games so far this season - in contrast to 25 at home - the London Road side have also conceded just seven and Moore knows they will present his side with tough opposition.

'We know Peterborough are a good side,' said Moore. 'They're big and strong and they can pass it. You want to be playing someone who is playing well.

'Those who aren't are due a good game. Those who are playing well are due a bad one.

'They should be frightened of us. We are on a decent run and are playing at home. It isn't easy to come here and try to win.

'A lot of teams have tried and it is difficult. We've got make sure we prepare right, don't take them for granted and get about them with attacking football.'

Other games featuring teams from different divisions include Macclesfield, who prop up the football league, visiting League One Hartlepool while League Two teams MK Dons, Mansfield, Darlington and Bristol Rovers host League One clubs Blackpool, Doncaster, Swansea and Bournemouth respectively.
