Mellon's reaction after hard fought point at Port Vale

14 August 2021

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon praised the travelling Super White Army for helping his team secure a well-deserved point at Port Vale on Saturday.

Mellon’s men were backed by a loud and strong support, and Rovers put in a display which was more than worthy of securing a point against Vale with the score 0-0.

The result means Rovers have yet to concede in League Two after their opening two league matches, and now have four points on the board, building on last weekend’s 1-0 victory against Walsall at Prenton Park.

Speaking to the local media in his post-match press conference, boss Mellon said: “I thought overall, across the full 90 minutes, we were superb and that is what we had to do, and we were always in the game. That is what we had to do, and we played some good football.

“We just needed to get on the end of some of the crosses and be more clinical, but I thought it was a hard-fought game which is what you will always get at Port Vale.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game, but we were roared on by an unbelievable support. They were brilliant, absolutely superb, and we really appreciate them, so that is why we thanked the travelling fans at the end of the game.

“We want them to know we appreciate them; they are spending their money to support us because we needed them today and we will need them throughout the course of the season.

“They gave us the legs, energy and desire that we needed due to the way that they supported us, but the players were really good. We played some controlled football; we showed a lot of bravery with the ball and it was a really hard-fought game.”
