Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon hopes his side can start 2019 on a high with a good performance away at Macclesfield Town on New Year’s Day.
Rovers ended a successful 2018 with a goalless draw at home to Yeovil Town, with Tranmere full of optimism ahead of a frantic start to 2019.
And with a visit to Sol Campbell’s Silkmen at Moss Rose next up on Tuesday, Mellon feels that preparation will be key if Rovers want a repeat display of the 1-0 win under the Prenton Park floodlights back in October, where Harvey Gilmour scored TRFC’s winner.
Mellon said: “It doesn’t really matter who we are going up against, it is about getting the boys ready to go again.
“We’ll take a big following to Macclesfield, it is always a game that is well supported by the Tranmere fans, so we are looking forward to it.
“We will go there, get the players ready as we always do, get them as organised as possible and try and win another game of football.”
Mellon reflected on a 2018 that saw Tranmere Rovers return to the EFL after a three-year absence to cement themselves well into the promotion mix-up at the halfway stage of the Sky Bet League Two campaign.
The Scot reserved praise for his Rovers squad and hopes that 2019 can be just as promising for the Club.
Mellon added: “It has been a fantastic year, we have to keep remembering that sometimes as we can get a bit carried away.
“This has been a group that has been together since last season and have done brilliant this season, they have carried on, at a level above. They have done terrifically well.”
