Micky looking to carry mentality and work rate forward

9 March 2020

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon knows his side must be at their best when they travel to Bloomfield Road where they will face Blackpool on Tuesday night.

Mellon, who spent three-years as a player with the Seasiders between 1994-1997, featuring on 138 occasions, takes his Rovers men back to his old club for a Sky Bet League One fixture under the floodlights.

Rovers will be aiming for a third win on the spin when they visit the Fylde Coast – after back-to-back victories took them six points from safety.

And after triumphs on their travels at Shrewsbury Town and Accrington Stanley, Mellon wants to see the same qualities against Neil Critchley’s Tangerines.

Mellon said: “It’s always important to try and take anything from getting good results, but we still know that we have got to work hard and bring all of them qualities that has got us good results into the next game.

“We have to go there, and we work very hard. We know that it going to be a very tough game like they all are in this league, we have to fight and scrap for the points.

“I had a fantastic time there as a player, I loved it. But I’m going back there as Tranmere manager and I’m looking forward to going back there to fight for a valuable three points.

“There’s a lot of emotion involved as everyone knows the importance of the three-points.

“It’s a group, it’s a squad and when called upon, all the lads will be expected to carry that mentality forward, the work rate that we have got.

“You get your head around it and you get on with it. We’ll make sure that we are well organised, and we’ll make sure that we are ready to go to Blackpool and fight for a vital three-points.

“We try not to get too high or too low as they are hard to come by, and quickly we’ll get prepared for Blackpool in order to give the players a chance of getting another valuable result.”
