The train from St Helens stops at Eccles Train Station. There are a few trains due in to Eccles between 6pm and 6.35pm.
There is a later train which arrives in Eccles at 7.36pm and anyone on this train would be able to head down Church Street to the Metrolink to get on the bus at 7.40pm again to bring them straight to the stadium.
Both will be on a first come first serve basis.
