TRANMERE Rovers are preparing for what promises to be a massive final home game of the season against promotion rivals Bury.

Micky Mellon's side earned a respectable point after a goal-less draw at Lincoln City on Easter Monday which saw their hosts crowned League Two champions.

Rovers have however now secured a guaranteed play off birth with two games remaining.

The final game is away against Crawley Town a week on Saturday, May 4.

Automatic promotion would require favourable results elsewhere.

During a press conference at the club's Solar Campus training ground this afternoon, Mellon reflected on what had been a tough season in League Two, adding that his team were ready for a challenging game at Prenton Park on Saturday.

He said: "It's been a tough old season; it's not just the recent games, they've all been tough but we've done very, very well and picked up enough points now to secure a play-off place, which is unbelievable for the club, and we'll keep on fighting 'til the end to see what happens."

He continued: "Saturday will be another great game, a big crowd.

"These are the kind of games you want to be involved in.

"There are different routes in order to try and get out of the division and be successful, that's for sure, but it's always been about preparing properly for the next game.

"So, regardless of what happens, we will always try and win the next game.

"We have a way of playing and if we hit the right tempo and intensity it's got us the results.

"At the minute we are hitting the levels.

"You've got to go out there prepared to do the things that we've done again and again and you've to be relentless with it.

"You've got to keep going again and keep the performance levels high.

"You've got to be prepared to hurt physically and personally in order to try and pick up the valuable points.

"We'll put out a group that we believe will represent the club properly."
