Micky Mellon ahead of Macclesfield clash

12 October 2018

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon is keeping grounded after the Club’s impressive start to the League Two season.

Rovers are currently seventh in the fourth-tier, inside the Play-Off positions and will be aiming for a third win on the spin when Macclesfield Town visit Prenton Park for a Friday night clash under the floodlights.

And with Tranmere currently riding high upon their return to the EFL following on from promotion under the Wembley arch in May, Mellon was quick to stress that while Rovers have started the season impressively, there is still plenty of the League Two campaign to go.

Speaking ahead of Friday night’s fixture with the Silkmen, Mellon said: “I can only talk about us and I don’t think you can make any comparison about how we have adapted any better than anybody else, I don’t think you can do that.

“I’m very careful to say that we have adapted, because football, the way it is, if you drop your guard and think you have achieved anything, you could be in trouble.

“I won’t really talk about this season until it’s all over and be able to say ‘yeah I think we did this’ or ‘yeah we should have done that better,’ at the minute we are still very much learning about football at this level.

“I think any of the fans that have watched or the games on tele, is that the intensity, they’ve been right to the very end, it has been tough, so we have got to keep being good at that and not believe we’ve achieved anything at all. “

The Scot, who recently celebrated his second anniversary as Rovers manager, has challenged the squad to keep up their high standards which they have set so far.

Mellon added: “We’ve got to keep doing the things that got us the points tally that we have got, I’m still disappointed with certain things, we need to keep trying to improve all of the time, it is what it is.”

“We’ll be after them, doing our part of the job which is making sure to keep the standards high, stay ambitious and what to keep improving and keep representing this brilliant Club with a passion.

“I don’t really think about adapting, I won’t take my eye off the ball, keep working harder, making sure that we keep our eye on the ball.”
