TRANMERE Rovers' battle for promotion back to League One reaches its nail-biting conclusion at Wembley Stadium this weekend.

Micky Mellon's side face Newport County in the League Two Play-off final at the national stadium on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

They made it through after a 2-1 aggregate win against Forest Green Rovers in the semi-finals on May 13.

It is the third consecutive year The Superwhites will visit Wembley to contest a playoff final.

They are hoping for a repeat of the performance that earned them promotion to League Two at Wembley 12 months ago.

Rovers have been allocated 16,734 tickets for the East End of Wembley Stadium.

The match will be broadcast on Sky Sports Football.

Thirty six coaches have been laid on to ferry the supporters down to Wembley, with that figure set to rise as the week progresses.

Micky Mellon's men are under no illusion of the pressure they under. When they walk out onto the hallowed turf on Saturday afternoon, their eyes and those of thousands of spectators will be fixed firmly on the all-important prize that’s at stake - a return to League One after five years away.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s clash at Wembley in an interview on the club's website, Micky Mellon said he was delighted that his team had booked their place under the arch for a third year in a row and they are ready for battle.

He said: “It is fantastic that we get through to go to the last stage of the play-offs, contesting the last place with the division.

"You have to enjoy getting to Wembley.

"It is every club’s, player’s, fan’s and manager’s dream to be able to go there.

"We will get them prepared and we will get them going again and try and gain the next place out of the division and we’ll get back to game mode.

"I'm sure the reasons why we are here is because we have done a lot right.

"Our season has been extended and we'll make sure that the players are ready for a trip to the big house to try and get out of the division."

Praising the club’s fans, Mellon continued: "The support at Tranmere is second to none.

"We are very grateful that we have that kind of support here because they get right behind us when we need them.

"You can see the way that the team reacts to that support so it is really important that we continue that.

"We have an educated crowd here and that is massively important.

"Since I have been here they have been terrific and it's getting better all of the time."
