Micky looks ahead to Burton test

20 September 2019

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon believes that his side are moving in the right direction ahead of Saturday’s home fixture against Burton Albion at Prenton Park.

Rovers are back in front of the SWA for the second time in the space of four days when Nigel Clough’s Brewers visit the Wirral in Sky Bet League One.

And buoyed by watching his players secure a second-half comeback against Peterborough United under the floodlights on Tuesday night, where Liam Ridehalgh’s header and Ollie Banks’ 30-yard thumping volley earned a 2-2 draw, Scotsman Mellon, 47, is optimistic about the Club’s development in the third-tier.

Mellon said: “My job is to make a group of players very competitive in League One and my part is to keep improving them and that we understand that it is a development thing so we have to develop into this team that is used to the tempo of what this division gives you, but we are definitely, 100% moving in the right direction.

 “I hope that people see a group coming together, both management staff and players and developing into a competitive League One team which we are working very hard to become on the training pitch every day.

“We have got together a group of players and put the ideas what we have learned over the years that we have been here, to try and achieve what we want to and get them to buy into it, and I feel that we are.

 “There’s loads that we have improved on. We need to keep more clean sheets, win more turnovers and be better at crosses as a team, we need to get better, and better, and better, we know that.

“We are patient and we will keep working, but we know how to improve so that is what we will keep doing, starting with Burton on Saturday.”
