Micky's Yeovil reaction

29 December 2018

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon spoke to the media after Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home to Yeovil Town.

Rovers created a number of goal scoring opportunities but were unable to break down a stubborn Glovers defence, as the focus now turns to New Year’s Day trip to Macclesfield Town.

Speaking in his post-match interview, Mellon said: “We had our fair share of chances, but we never really got into any passing rhythm but certainly in terms of chances, we had a few.

“It has been a tough period and the positives are that we kept a clean sheet, we are on a wee bit of a run again, so we need to build on that.

“They are a very determined team and they only stop being a back four very occasionally, so it is difficult to get around them. They are very well organised, and it is tough so when they opportunities come your way, you must take them.

“Their goalkeeper has made a couple of good saves and we have had a couple of three-quarter chances, but their goalkeeper has made some good saves.

“We needed a wee bit more composure in vital areas and a wee bit of quality needed to keep a move going. It is important to remember it has been a tough period. We tried everything, and we tried to win the game but unfortunately it wasn’t to be.”
