Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon feels that the wet conditions played a part in the goalless draw with Walsall at Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon.
Rovers ended their pre-season schedule with a stalemate against Darrell Clarke’s Saddlers as preparations continue for the upcoming Sky Bet League One term which starts with a home game against Rochdale next Saturday.
In a game of few chances on a rain sodden Wirral, Stefan Payne forced Liam Roberts into a good stop before Harvey Gilmour struck over from 25-yards.
And the Scotsman believes the weather played a key factor in a contest which yielded limited openings on goal for either side.
He said: “The conditions made it very difficult for both sets of players, there’s things that we were pleased about and things that we know we have to work on.
“I think the conditions didn’t help, that was for sure, you can’t legislate for that kind of thing as that’s how it was always going to go that way.
“Under the situation, both teams tried to play football on a difficult pitch.
“It’s not really a gelling job and from the team that has played, only two played for us in the National League so it’s just about really bedding people in.”
