Tranmere Rovers boss Micky Mellon believes this weekend’s game at League One leaders Ipswich Town is the perfect chance to see how far his team has developed.
The SWA head to Portman Road for the first time in more than 20 years, and will be looking to claim their first three points on the road this season.
Speaking to the local media in his pre-match press conference, the boss said: “We know it is going to be a really difficult game. We know they have really talented players but that is the challenge ahead. This is what it is all about, we want to go and test ourselves in this type of environment.
“This is what we expect from the players, we expect them to go there with no fear. I am really looking forward to seeing where we are up to, I am looking forward to the journey and the game.
“As a group, we will embrace Saturday and the exam will finish at 4.45pm when the referee blows his final whistle and we will see where we need to improve and where we don’t need to improve.
“Saturday is the next stage for this developing group and football club that is trying to get back to where it should be. That is all that is in my mind is to keep developing and trying to improve and honestly, Saturday is just another step forward for us to see where we are up to.”
