TRANMERE Rovers face League Two promotion rivals Bury in what promises to be a massive final home game of the season tonight.

The game, getting underway at 7.45pm, was rescheduled on Saturday afternoon after Storm Hannah hit the region and heavy rain made the pitch waterlogged.

Micky Mellon's side are currently sixth on the table, four-points from third-placed Mansfield Town. They earned a respectable point after a goal-less draw at Lincoln City on Easter Monday which saw their hosts crowned League Two champions.

Ryan Lowe's Bury are second after their 3-1 home triumph over Northampton Town at Gigg Lane last time out.

Rovers have however now secured a guaranteed play off birth with two games remaining. Their final game is away against Crawley Town this Saturday, May 4.

Automatic promotion would require favourable results elsewhere.

Out of action for Tranmere is Mark Ellis with a cruciate knee ligaments injury, and Ishmael Miller who is in the early stages of recovery. Evan Gumbs has gone for a scan after an injury sustained against Lincoln City. Also missing will be Liam Ridehalgh and Luke McCullough, a long term absentee for Rovers. But David Perkins and Steve McNulty are back in training.

During a press conference ahead of the Bury game 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.

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."

On tonight's match he continued: "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."
