Micky's Rochdale reaction

3 August 2019

Manager Micky Mellon believes there are a lot of lessons to be learnt after Rovers' 3-2 loss at home to Rochdale at Prenton Park.

More than 8,000 fans were inside Prenton Park, as Rovers nearly collected a point with two late goals but the manager is confident the team will continue to improve after matchday one. 

He said: "There is a lot of lessons that need to be learned, what we have to do now is move on to this evening and tomorrow then we will come back in on Monday and work again.

"It’s easy to see that we need to get better at certain things and work on them and be that bit  better with the ball and be a bit more streetwise.

"Before the game this week I said to everybody that it is a step up, a step up in quality and there is absolutely no doubt about that so what we have to go and no now is make that step up and close that gap in quality, learn the lessons and improve on that.

"I thought we started well, I thought we came out of the traps well then we gave away a cheap penalty from probably Rochdale’s first  break but we will learn.

"We had a lot of players out there playing at this level for the first time or were coming back into it after a long time and we will be there for them to help them improve."
