Tranmere Rovers have confirmed that their Second Division match against Mansfield Town, which was abandoned at half-time on Saturday on police advice after a man had climbed onto the roof of a stand at Prenton Park, will be replayed tomorrow evening with free admission for all spectators.
Rovers were leading 2-0 when the man allegedly climbed the floodlight before jumping onto the roof of the Cow Shed Stand. The referee then called a halt to proceedings. Merseyside police have charged a man with threatening behaviour, being drunk at a designated sporting event and aggravated trespass in connection with the incident. He will appear before Wirral magistrates this morning.
Crewe secured their return to the First Division at the first attempt on Saturday with a goalless draw at Queen's Park Rangers. That point and Cardiff's 0-0 draw with Wigan sealed second place for Crewe. QPR remain in line to qualify for the play-offs, as they would have to lose their game at Colchester next week and see Tranmere win their last two matches, while making up an inferior goal difference of 17, to miss out. At the bottom, Mansfield and Huddersfield Town were relegated.
