Liverpool Sport Guide: Tranmere Rovers vs Forest Green Rovers

This Sunday, Tranmere Rovers are back at Wembley for the first time in 17 years as they take on Forest Green Rovers in the National League play-off final.

Up to 20,000 supporters are set to make the long journey south for the game, with some even flying in from New Zealand, Vietnam and America. They are desperate to see their team taste success, given their last promotion was in 1991. Back then, cult hero Chris Malkin scored an extra-time winner as Johnny King’s side beat Bolton 1-0.

Current Rovers first team coach Shaun Garnett was part of the squad then, and he told our Matt that he is desperate to help them get back in the Football League.

Micky Mellon will become just the third manager to lead Tranmere out at Wembley.

He is also the first Rovers boss to reach the national stadium who is not called John – after John King and John Aldridge.

Since Tranmere were last promoted in 1991, all of the clubs in the National League, Championship, League One and League Two have gone up.
