Micky looks ahead to busy Christmas period

24 December 2021

Rovers boss Micky Mellon gave his thoughts on the upcoming Christmas period ahead of Sunday’s fixture against Barrow at Prenton Park.

“There’s nothing like Boxing Day and New Years Day games. It’s always been a place in the calendar that we always look forward to. It’s a period we look forward to performing in and seeing fans come together to watch football at this time of the year."

With both Liverpool and Everton games being postponed this weekend, Prenton Park will host the only professional game on Merseyside and Micky is urging as many people as possible to back the lads at Prenton Park.

“If anyone wants to see live football then get to Prenton Park on Boxing Day! It’s a really big game for us and we’re really looking forward to it. 

“We’re in a great position which we’ve worked very hard to get into. There’s always things that we can improve on and there’s things that we’re doing very well in order to try and get the results but now it’s about keeping that consistency and improving on the things that we’re doing."

With the halfway point of the season approaching, Mellon outlines that he and his team just want to keep improving and picking up results as often as possible.

“It’s a tough time of the season and we’re getting towards half way through the season now so it’s important that you keep trying to chalk off those victories and finding a consistent way of doing that.

“We’re not asking the players for anything complicated or anything they won’t have seen before. Of course there will be small tweaks but there’s been nothing outrageous for us to get used to.

“What’s important is that we’ve got to know each other and build those relationships. We’ve had little spells where we’ve not won games but on the whole we’ve done fine so far and we want to get better. We’re picking up results and we just want to carry on doing that.
