TRANMERE Rovers' boss Micky Mellon says his team is 'good to go' for this weekend's play-off final at Wembley.

His 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 the game during a media afternoon at Rovers' Solar Campus training ground in Leasowe today, Mellon told the Globe: "We're enjoying the build up, certainly enjoying the weather.

"We're excited but contained, making sure that we try to hit the levels that we know are necessary for us being ready for Saturday.

"We're trying to get that right, because we haven't had a game since Forest Green last week, so we're going to get the boys as ready as we possibly can."

Asked whether he ever imagined Rovers would be in the play-off final when the season started, he continued: "We never set any targets because we didn't have anything, really, to measure it on.

"We had so many players, with all due respect, that hadn't played an awful lot in the football league so we couldn't say 'oh he's done well in the football league so we should do well again' because we had no evidence of that.

"But I definitely knew we had good players and definitely knew that we had a mentality and team spirit that would make us very competitive, but what I didn't want to do was ever race ahead of myself and start making mad, ridiculous statements.

"But as the season went on a picture began to emerge of the prize that we could be fighting for.

"We're very, very grateful to have put in performances that have put us through to the play-off final and given us the chance to compete for a chance to get out of this division.

"It will be a really tough contested game.

"It has been every time we've played Newport, they've done fantastic to get to the play-off final stage.

"The fact that we have both done so well is a great credit to both clubs.

"We know that we've got to play well, as do Newport, in order to try to gain the prize."

Praising the army of fans that will follow Rovers to Wembley, Mellon continued: "Managers and players have got to remember that they have responsibility to get your fanbase into situations like this; because this is their football club and these are the days that they crave and never forget.

"So to be able to give them one of their days, to go to Wembley and see their club playing at Wembley, is fantastic and I'm pleased that we can do that.

"As players we have got to go down there and seal the deal now. We're professionals and have to try to win."
