Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon was pleased with how his side showcased their qualities in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Blackpool at Prenton Park.
Morgan Ferrier’s well taken strike secured a point for Mellon’s men late in the first-half, after Calum Woods turned into his own net.
And Mellon praised the fighting spirit from his players as they fought back in their final fixture of 2019.
The boss gave his thoughts to the local press following the point with Simon Grayson’s Seasiders.
Mellon said: “We showed our qualities in a really tough game against a big, physical Blackpool side, and you can see that they are up there and prepared to play how they do.
“And we know what we have to do to get results in this division. Everybody and me know that we have to go and do that all the time, you have to go out and be strong and prepared to suffer and run hard from the first whistle in order to turn performances like that.
“We are disappointed to concede from a set piece, but we showed a reaction to that, we kept going and we kept digging in, and Morgan Ferrier gets a cracker, he was fantastic all afternoon.
“It’s an all-round performance and I’m pleased with the way that we fought back.
“That is a Tranmere performance and that’s what is required when you play for Tranmere. It is about hard graft and running, and graft, and they show the ability that we have.
“They played with heart and the fans know what they want, and we gave it a right good go on a beyond tough pitch, and we accepted what the game asked of us
“We responded and we did what a Tranmere team should do.”
