Micky on Wycombe defeat

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon gave his assessment of his side’s 3-1 defeat away to Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on Saturday afternoon.

Anthony Stewart opened the scoring for Gareth Ainsworth's Chairboys before the break before James Vaughan levelled for Rovers just beyond the hour.

Adebayo Akinfenwa restored Wycombe's lead before Joe Jacobson netted a stoppage time penalty after Scott Davies fouled Alex Samuel.

And Micky had his say on the result down in Buckinghamshire.

Mellon said: "With the wind, it was a scrappy game and there wasn’t a lot of football played, with the long balls and the knockdowns and it was going to be that all day.

“If you look at it, the ball was bouncing and bobbling all over the place, so it was going to be difficult.

“When we got it back to one each, I thought the momentum would be with us and it would maybe turn our way, but that one little moment, to see Akinfenwa out muscle us in the box was a tough one.

“We allow a cross to come into the box and we get out muscled in the six-yard box to allow it to be 2-1 to them."
