Post-Match Micky Mellon (Dover Athletic)

18 April 2018

Manager pleased with win on the road

Micky Mellon was a happy man after his Rovers side picked up a victory 300 miles away from home at the Crabble Athletic Ground against Dover Athletic.

Andy Cook's first half goal gave Rovers the 1-0 win and the boss was delighted with the spirit his team showed to get the three points.

He said: "It's a massively important win for us. We know how difficult it is to get results down here, they keep asking you question after question, so I'm delighted to get a valuable three points.

"The battling qualities and fighting spirit right throughout the team and togetherness to come down here and get a result was great.

"The backing we got from the supporters was nothing short of magnificent and as a group, fans included, we deserved a very valuable three points.

"It was important to keep the momentum going and that's what we have done.

One player who was unavailable for Tuesday's game was Ben Tollitt, after the winger sustained an injury in the 2-0 victory over Aldershot Town last weekend.

The manager explained that after a scan, Tollitt's season would be over but the injury is not as bad as first feared.

Mellon added: "He's done his knee ligaments again so his season is over now which is sad.

"The only bonus we have got is that it's not as bad or the same as the previous injury, so hopefully he will be back for the start of pre-season.

"If there are football gods, the boy deserves some luck and good fortune so I hope he gets it."
