Micky Mellon reacts to win over Macclesfield

12 October 2018

Manager Micky Mellon praised his team for staying tactically disciplined and keeping their composure following the 1-0 win against Macclesfield Town.

Friday night football made its anticipated return to Prenton Park as Rovers came out victorious courtesy of Harvey Gilmour’s third league goal in two matches.

Speaking to the media after the game, Mellon said: “It is a massive result, especially because it is a Friday night and how much it means to the Club and the supporters to have games played on Fridays.

“It was a great turn out and a fantastic atmosphere. The game was cagey, and I think it was always going to be like that. We scored a terrific opening goal that was worthy of winning any game.

“For Connor to show that strength and balance so late in the game, it is what Connor is all about. For him to pick out Harvey with a fantastic pass after all that work, it shows the quality of the boy.

“Harvey is a wonderful kid and he loves football. He is a delight to work with all the time, he is a real throw back. He is not frightened about taking part in the game, he is a terrific player.

“We said to the players at half time, the worst thing you can do is get frustrated and believe we are going to create chances. The important thing was to make sure we didn’t make any mistakes and lose a goal on frustration.

“They kept their composure, tactically disciplined and we knew at some stage the chance would come.”
