Micky's Notts County reaction

23 February 2019

Manager Micky Mellon was pleased with the intensity levels his side showed in the 1-0 victory against Notts County.

Rovers recorded their second win of the week as they closed the gap on the top seven in League Two alongside keeping their 15th clean sheet of the season.

The win came courtesy of Connor Jennings' fifth league goal of the season, after he collected Ben Pringle's pass from inside the penalty box to slot home in front of the home supporters in the Essar KOP.

Speaking to the press after the game, the boss said: “Every credit to the players, again we have collected another clean sheet and we quite rightly said we have to start getting them again.

“The players are fighting hard and we are getting them and every credit. It is a massive three points and at this stage of the season, with experience, you know games are going to be like that. We are delighted we came out with a victory.

“We had good tempo and momentum to our play which we are trying to install into the group. They have to play with that intensity all the time.

“From minute one, they played with a great intensity which gave us a real opportunity to pick up maximum points.

“Notts County have a good manager and we knew it was going to be tough. They have a lot of experience within the group and all you have to do is look through their team and you can see the quality they have.

“They were well organised, and we needed the crowd to help us get over the line which they did so a pleasing day.”
