Micky reacts to Wycombe tie

9 November 2019

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon was pleased with the resilience showcased by his side as they drew 2-2 at home to Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup first-round at Prenton Park on Saturday.

Kieron Morris scored in each half, either side of strikes from Joe Jacobson and Alex Samuel, as Rovers will be in the hat for the second-round draw on Monday night.

Tranmere will visit Gareth Ainsworth’s Chairboys at Adams Park on Wednesday 20th November, 7:45pm kick-off.

And Mellon praised the fight that saw Rovers ensure a replay down in Buckinghamshire.

Melon said: “In terms of resilience and the qualities that were needed on a day like today in an FA Cup tie, we weren’t found wanting and that is part of the development of the Football Club and the team have got to make sure what we know what the game is asking us, and we’ll do that.

“The very minimum you wanted from today was to come out of the game and still be in the hat. We would have liked to have won the game, but it was a really competitive game, it was very, very physical. It was probably what we expected.

“We are disappointed with the goals that we have lost from set plays, but all in all it was a hard fought, keenly contested cup tie.

“He (Morris) scored two really good goals. We are always on at him because of the quality he has got, he scored two good goals with two good finishes, which keeps us in the hat.

“We were 1-0 up and cruising and we gave away a free-kick on the edge of the box. We know how dangerous the lad is from those areas, and with their first opportunity, they have got themselves back in the game.

“And then the second one is a set play just in front of the dugouts. It’s an awful long way, we won the first header and had a few swipes at the second one, and they bundled it over the line eventually which was disappointing.”
