The Cherries have a one-point lead over Doncaster as they travel to Tranmere for the final round of league matches this season.

But if they seal the title at Prenton Park, the trophy will be presented to them on Sunday at the Goldsands Stadium ahead of their open-top bus parade through the south coast town to celebrate their promotion.

A Football League statement read: "The presentation will commence at 12pm, entry to the Goldsands Stadium will be free of charge and the main stand will open at 11am.

"Ordinarily, the Football League does not present trophies at away grounds unless a club makes a specific request for us to do so.

"In this case, AFC Bournemouth did ask the League to present the trophy on Saturday but after consultation with Tranmere Rovers and Merseyside Police it was decided not to grant the request.

"Tranmere Rovers felt that they were not absolutely able to guarantee the safety of all players, match officials and supporters on the day."

recently had to complete a difficult project at work. I had to come in early, stay late. I even had to work some 7 day weeks. Anyway, long story short, I'm now a member of Britain First. Slippery slope.
