Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon believes his side are “showing progress” ahead of Saturday afternoon’s visit to Bolton Wanderers in Sky Bet League One.
Rovers head to the University of Bolton Stadium where Keith Hill’s Trotters await in the third-tier this weekend.
Tranmere will be backed by a strong number of the SWA who will be making the journey over to Greater Manchester for a clash against their local rivals.
Mellon, who played in Rovers’ last trip to Bolton, which was a 2-1 victory in an FA Cup third-round replay in January 2004, wants to see improvements and believes his group are making progress.
And speaking to the local press, Micky had his say on how he feels TRFC are moving forward.
He said: “I want to make the group better, and we are working every day to improve.
“The games are coming down to real small moments. Whole 90 minutes are coming down to these moments and we have to turn them into our favour, and we are showing progress.
“We’ll work on our responsibilities and we have made improvements in the group. We have to bag that up with results, I know that, and getting results, that’s the be all and end all.
“The performances in order to give us a better chance of getting results are definitely improving and are definitely there for us.
“We need improvement. I’ve said since the start of the season that it would be a huge step up. But with the group that I’ve got, without any doubt in my mind, do I believe that we can win enough games of football and get enough points in this league to keep us moving forward.
“We need to do our job properly, keep moving forward and keep on improving, and when those opportunities come, we need to take them.
“The margins are really small. You just have to take your chances when they come.”
