TRANMERE Rovers are now just 90 minutes away from finding out if they will return to the Football League.

Micky Mellon's side booked their place in the National League promotion final at Wembley Stadium after drawing 2-2 with Aldershot but winning the two-legged tie on aggregate last weekend.

They now face Forest Green in a showdown at the national stadium this Sunday, kick off 3pm.

It's 17 years since the Super White Army were last at Wembley. They played there in 2000, the final season of the old stadium, against Leicester City in the Worthington Cup Final.

More than 20,000 fans are expected to follow them for this weekend's return trip.

During a press conference at the club's Solar Campus training ground in Leasowe this afternoon, Mellon said his side was fully focused on the job they have to do and its prize of promotion to League Two.

He said: "As a child in Glasgow when we played in the playground, we always played at Wembley, and now we get the chance to play for real. It's fantastic.

"It's always been a place that you shouldn't ever tire of wanting to get to".

He continued: "We're delighted that we get the opportunity to contest the final, if you like, the last place of the division.

"I think that would have been the least we had wanted to achieve at the start of the season, so the players have done that.

"It's all about getting the preparation right, getting down to Wembley and making sure the players are ready for what should be a fantastic occasion.

"At the dressing room door I'll say to the players 'do your jobs, go and represent us and do that to the best of your abilities. Don't let this event pass you by without taking part in it and enjoy it'".

Preparing his team for the game, he said: "The key word is focus; we do it all the time, in the way that we coach and the way that we play.

"We all have jobs to do and the word focus is used all the time.

"My attitude with the players is 'focus on your jobs. Everything else that's going on around you, be it the noise from the crowd or whatever, is irrelevant'. 

"'You're part of the team and you have to focus on that to be successful; that should take us through'".

Praising the club's fantastic and loyal fans, he continued: "The support fans give us all the time is wonderful, isn't it?

"We really appreciate them and we make sure we represent them all the time and know who we representing, so we go to Wembley with that in mind and on the day we'll give everything we've got.

"I haven't really thought about me in all of this, because it's all about the players.

"I'm just trying to give them to get down to Wembley and perform really, really well in a massive game.

"When I'm old and really grey, maybe I’ll think about where the trip to Wembley ranked, but at the moment I'm just thinking about the boys.

"They know the enormity that a win could have on both clubs if they're successful.

"They know that they have got to down and do really, really well – so that helps keep them in the zone and focused.

"When you get these moments you should really enjoy them, embrace them and not wish your days away.

"It's been a long time since Tranmere have been to Wembley, so the fans should enjoy it, so should the players; enjoy the build-up and when the game comes make sure you want to take part in it.

"It's a terrific opportunity to get promoted to the Football League; it's there for both clubs.

"It will be who turns up on the day and performs best that will come out top".

Praising the club's chairman Mark Palios, Mellon said: "At the end of the day, the chair took that chance and opportunity to come back and manage an entire football club, which is a great call.

"All of his family is engrained in the club, so Wembley is a massive day for them".
