"It is a great night for the club" - Micky after Lincoln win

3 October 2018

Tranmere Rovers boss Micky Mellon was pleased his team picked up an important three points against League Two leaders Lincoln City on Tuesday night.

Rovers claimed a 1-0 victory over the Imps courtesy of a well worked goal which was finished off by James Norwood under the Prenton Park floodlights.

Norwood, however, was sent off in added time after a harsh double booking but overall it didn’t dampen spirits as Tranmere built on last weekend’s 1-1 draw at MK Dons.

Speaking to the media after the game, Mellon said: “We felt in the first half we were not getting close enough to them as we wanted to but all credit to the boys, they came out second half and what we did worked. We are really pleased in the end to get an important three points. It is a great night for the Club.

“Every game asks a different question and tonight’s game asked different questions all the time. Credit to our boys for doing their jobs and winning their headers and the knock downs and getting us over the line.

“At half time we knew what jobs needed to be done in order to make us more of a threat in the second half, going forward and nullifying Lincoln.

“It worked well and all credit to the players, at the end of the day, we put an idea to them and they have to deliver and they did. We scored a good goal and we are pleased we got over the line.”
