    That just about does us for now, with Morecambe carrying on a cracking season by sealing their place in the play-off final at Wembley on 31 May.

    But who will join them?

    We'll be back later on today to take you through Forest Green's League Two play-off semi-final second leg against Newport County.

    Can they overturn County's two-goal lead? Our coverage of that one begins at 18:15 BST.

    For now, thank you for joining us.

  2. 'It's unbelievable'

    FT: Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Morecambe midfielder Toumani Diagouraga told Sky Sports:

    "It's unbelievable. We've worked hard all season. We thought we could have got top three but it wasn't to be.

    "Hopefully we can do it at Wembley and go up that way.

    "We can sit back or press high. We decided to sit back in the first half. We're going to enjoy it today. It was great to see fans back today."

  3. Post update

    FT: Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    So with that result, we've confirmed five of our six English Football League play-off finalists.

    In the Championship on 29 May, Brentford take on Swansea while Blackpool will take on Lincoln City the day after.

    And, obviously, now Morecambe will contest the League Two play-off final on Bank Holiday Monday.

    But who will they face? Forest Green take on Newport in the final play-off semi-final second leg later today.

  4. Post update

    FT: Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Tranmere will stay in League Two for another season after this result.

    But what a story for Morecambe and what a job Derek Adams has done as they reach Wembley.

    Morecambe have never played in English football's third tier. But they are now 90 minutes away from that being a reality.

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    All over at the Mazuma Stadium and Morecambe have done it!

    They have beaten Tranmere 3-2 on aggregate to earn their passage to the League Two play-off final!

    They will be going to Wembley on 31 May!

  6. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Tranmere are hammering Morecambe with a succession of passes and long balls but the Shrimps are holding firm.

    Not long to go now.

  7. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Tranmere Calum MacDonald is fouled by a robust Ryan Cooney challenge.

    Cooney is on a yellow card as well. Three minutes remain. Can Tranmere force extra time?

  8. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Six minutes of time added on.

    Six minutes for Tranmere to force an equaliser.

    Six minutes for Morecambe to hang on.

    Morecambe fans

  9. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Bit of head tennis in the Morecambe box as it begins to get a bit tense in the closing stages, here.

    Otis Khan heads into the box as Tranmere press and the ball falls to James Vaughan who heads high and eventually into the hands of Shrimps keeper Kyle Letheren.

    That's greeted by a huge roar from the home fans.

  10. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Another Morecambe change as the time ticks down to full-time.

    Goalscorer Aaron Wildig is replaced by Alex Kenyon.

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Morecambe make a change with Liam McAlinden coming off for the hosts.

    He's replaced by Brad Lyons as they look to see this tie out.


    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Oh my word what's going on here?!

    Tranmere eventually have the ball in the net but comes after a controversial incident involving Morecambe keeper Kyle Letheren diving low to collect the ball.

    James Vaughan tries to get onto it and divert it into the goal after Letheren spills a Tranmere shot and the Rovers striker looks to put his boot in on his face.

    The home crowd want a red. He's shown yellow. I think that's about right.


    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    What a save!

    Morecambe keeper Kyle Letheren makes a tremendous save after Manny Monthe shoots from Liam Feeney's pinpoint accurate delivery on the right.

    Tranmere ought to be level, here.

  14. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Ryan Cooney goes into the book for a bad foul and Tranmere win a free-kick in a useful area on the left flank.

    They send it into the box but James Vaughan is flagged offside as soon as it's taken.

  15. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Tranmere keeper Joe Murphy puts his sock back on

    There's a break in play as Tranmere keeper Joe Murphy takes his left boot and sock off, presumably to make some adjustments.

    The two teams take in some water meantime.

    Morecambe heading through to the final as it stands.

  16. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Otis Khan handles the ball in the process of Tranmere's flowing move upfield and the attack draws to a close as Morecambe win a free-kick.

    Still all the visitors so far, but they are not giving the hosts much to think about as time ticks down.

  17. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Toumani Diagouraga lets fly with an audacious shot for Morecambe which, had it not picked up a deflection for a corner, would probably have gone nearer the corner flag than the goal.

    The corner comes to nothing as Tranmere block it away before launching it upfield.


    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Finally, Kaiyne Woolery is introduced for Tranmere along with Calum MacDonald in another double change for the visitors.

    Liam Ridehalgh and Corey Blackett-Taylor are brought off, meantime.

  19. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Morecambe fans

    A Tranmere free-kick is dealt with by the hosts and there's a massive roar from the 1,500 in attendance as they win a throw-in.

    Great stuff from the hosts, who are dealing with the danger so far.

  20. Post update

    Morecambe 1-1 Tranmere (3-2 agg)

    Liam Ridehalgh puts a high ball into the Morecambe box as they look to force another goal, but it bounces away from the onrushing David Nugent.

    In the meantime, looks like Kaiyne Woolery actually will be coming on now.
