Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon described Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Oldham Athletic as a hard-fought North-West game.
Speaking to the media after the game, the boss said “I said in my pre-match press conference, it would be nip and tuck and there would be nothing in the game. It will be the first team to bend that will lose so it was a North West head to head and you get these in the EFL.
“Both teams had a right good go and I don’t think there was anything left in the two groups at the end. Every credit to both sets of players, there was nothing in the game.
“Their goal got a nick on it so like I have said, the margins are small. People were doing their jobs and, in these games, the margins are in the bits of fortunes that come your way.
‘It has landed at their player’s feet and he has put the ball in. I said at half time there was nothing in the game and I thought we played some good football.
“We could have been better at certain things, but I said go and look for the margins in the game. Often the tiniest of margins gets you the advantage in these types of games and we have scored a terrific equaliser. It was a hard-fought North-West game.”
