NEWPORT County AFC will take on Tranmere Rovers in the League Two play-off final at Wembley on May 25 after Mickey Mellon’s men overcame Forest Green Rovers.

Leading 1-0 from the first leg at Prenton Park on Friday, Tranmere were pegged back on aggregate at The New Lawn when Joseph Mills headed home in the 12th minute.

But former Forest Green striker James Norwood volleyed what proved to be the all-important equaliser on the night, and winner overall, 15 minutes later. It was his 32nd goal of the season.

Midway through the second half Forest Green's Carl Winchester was sent off for two bookable offences.

It means the teams that finished sixth and seventh in League Two have made the final at the expense of the teams that finished fourth and fifth.

The result also ensured Mellon's team will be going to Wembley for the third year in a row.

Tranmere are bidding to return to League One for the first time since their relegation in 2014, which was followed by another relegation and then three non-league campaigns.

Forest Green are now set for a third straight term in the fourth tier, having reached the English Football League for the first time with a win over Tranmere in 2017's National League play-off final.
