Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon praised the way his team battled to claim a 1-0 victory against Cambridge United at Prenton Park.
Rovers victory came courtesy of a 77th minute goal from James Norwood but the boss was pleased with his team’s overall display and reserved credit for the Club’s supporters.
“Today’s result was an award for resilience and we dug in. We all knew that is what it took today but I must honestly say, I thought the fans were mega when we needed them.
“The raised the atmosphere and you can see the reaction from the players that they all energised from it with the togetherness. We came back again, and it drove us on and then you can see what a goal can do for a team in battle.
“I am very proud of the team and the way that they battled. I am glad I am getting the opportunity to say that because it would look a bit sour grapes if we didn’t get the result.
“Ten or eleven of our players today played in the National League last season and we have to remember that. We have a group of lads fighting very hard for the Club and they give everything and that deserves a lot of respect.
“We all know over the 46 games, you need to have those qualities and they certainly don’t lack in that area. It was a battling performance and they stuck to it to a man and they deserve great credit.
“They have all stepped up a level so every credit to them.”
