James Norwood silences the Forest Green supporters.

Abrilliant night last night for Rovers as they moved to within one win of achieving back-to-back promotions. Tranmere overcame 10-man Forest Green Rovers to reach the League Two play-off final. Micky Mellon’s side – who went up through the National League play-offs last season – will now face Newport County at Wembley on Saturday 25th May for a place in the First Division. Rovers went into last night’s game leading 1-0 from Friday’s first leg and were initially pegged back at The New Lawn as Joseph Mills headed in for the Gloucestershire club. But a well-taken volley from James Norwood against his old club quickly put Tranmere level in the second leg and restored their aggregate lead in the tie.
