Andre Gray conceded a free kick by touching the ball twice from kick-off during Watford’s 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Tranmere Rovers on Thursday night.

League One side Tranmere had just taken a 36th minute lead through Manny MonthΓ© in the 3rd round replay at Prenton Park.

Tasked with getting the match restarted, Gray tapped it backwards but woefully underhit his pass.

Worries the ball might be intercepted, he made sure to get there first, committing a foul in the eyes of referee Tony Harrington.

Micky Mellon’s men sprang an upset on the night having bounced back from 3-0 down to draw the first game at the Vicarage.
