Micky looks ahead to Stevenage clash

8 February 2019

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon says his team are determined to get their season back on track, starting this weekend against Stevenage.

Tranmere will be looking for an instant response on home soil on Saturday following Tuesday night’s narrow loss at Prenton Park against Northampton Town.

The manager emphasised the importance of the game against Stevenage in his pre-match press conference at the Campus.

He said: “Every game is big, no game is more important than any other. Three points is always the prize in the league and we don’t look at home games and say they are any more important than away fixtures, we try and win every game that we take part in.

“We try and play well in every game we compete in too. Tranmere is a very proud place, we don’t like to be beaten at home, we don’t accept it. We will never accept it, we believe we should win every game at home and we will go into Saturday’s game with that mentality.

“We will do what we always try and do, and we will work on the things that we think will give us a good chance of getting the result. Every game is massive, and the games are running down now, and we want to make a good go of having an exciting end of the season.

“We don’t want the season to fizzle, we want to get back on track again and get that hope back in the building again. We want to have an exciting push towards promotion.

“Looking at the league table is a measurement of points success. Stevenage are up and around us, they have done well, and they will be tough to beat. They have a good manager who I know well, he will have them fired up and they will be looking forward to coming to Tranmere.

“They will be coming to Prenton Park expecting to compete and do well. We are ready to face that challenge and we know it is a massive three points. We are looking forward to challenge.”
