After a 17 year absence from Wembley, Rovers are on their way back to the national stadium. And we’re potentially just 90 minutes from a Football League return.
Typically, it was far from routing for Tranmere as they looked to defend a three-goal lead from the first leg. Cole Stockton gave Rovers the lead, but goals either side of half-time put Aldershot right back in it.
Scott Davies pulled off a save which was frankly world class to maintain the two-goal aggregate advantage, but Rovers’ fans couldn’t relax until stoppage time when James Norwood smashed the ball home to make it 2-2 on the night, 5-2 on aggregate.
A pitch invasion and celebrations for the squad were enjoyable and will live in the memory. But it’s on to Wembley a week Sunday for the biggest game in our recent history.
Enjoy the beers.
