Micky previews visit of Ipswich

17 January 2020

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon feels his side are becoming “more consistent” as they navigate themselves through their Sky Bet League One season.

Promotion-chasing Ipswich Town visit Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon, with Rovers returning to action in front of the SWA for the 3pm kick-off.

Rovers kick-start a busy week as they host the Suffolk outfit before welcoming Premier League club Watford in Thursday night’s re-arranged Emirates FA Cup third-round replay.

And ahead of the clash with Paul Lambert’s Tractor Boys this weekend, Mellon believes that his players are adapting to the demands of the third-tier of English football.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Mellon said: “We’ve worked to try and become more consistent at everything that League One asks of you.

“We’ve definitely improved, and we’ve been able to bring a few bodies in and we have a few back from injury now.

“The players in general have shown levels of improvements of the asks of League One as well. I think that is quite simple that they had to get better and be more consistent.”

Mellon wants his men to get back to basics, with a timely boost ahead of this weekend coming in the form of captain Scott Davies being available for selection after a recent calf injury.

The boss added: “I’ve told them that they have to keep the football simple. They have to get more goals and get more clean sheets in order to give us a chance of keep moving forward.

“I’m hoping that we’ll show a level of improvement even from the performance with Ipswich.”
