The wait is over. Tonight, thousands of Tranmere supporters will make their way back to Prenton Park for the first time this year to watch their beloved Whites.

Rovers face Morecambe in the first leg of the League Two promotion playoffs in a match that will go a long way to determining if the team has what it takes to make an immediate return to League One after the injustice of their Points Per Game demotion last season.

Interim manager Ian Dawes and assistant Andy Parkinson are ready to lead the Whites into battle for the Birkenhead club's biggest game of the season.

Around 3,400 supporters have been lucky enough to snap up all the tickets for this reduced capacity fixture, with season ticket holders rewarded for their loyalty with free tickets for the game.

Around 400 went on general sale yesterday but were gone in no time, leaving plenty of fans disappointed, but those without tickets can still see it live and some have been more innovative than others.

Casual jobs filled in record time

Having played in an empty stadium for most of the season, the return of thousands of people left Rovers with a few match-day jobs to fill.

When the club advertised for turnstile operators yesterday, in return for access to the match, it turned out that there was a high appetite amongst the fanbase to give a helping hand to fellow supporters getting into the ground.

Working under similar terms, the club also needed two flag-wavers for the front of the Kop, jobs that were once again filled in quick-time. Presumably, they were inundated with over-qualified CVs.

Watch it at the pub

With national coronavirus restrictions now lifted, Wirral pubs are back open both indoors and out and will be hoping for a good turn out tonight.

One venue that appears to be well set up for the occasion is The Farmer's Arms in Frankby, who's owner is big Rovers fan.

A large screen has been erected, with around 60 tables set up outside, complete with table service provided by extra staff. Plus, there's a play area for the kids.

Looking at the weather though, you might need a coat or an umbrella!

Good luck Rovers

However you decide to watch it, let's hope a Tranmere win is being celebrated afterwards. Super White Army!
