Micky's reaction to Exeter win

11 December 2021

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon says he is very pleased with his side’s performance, after the 1-0 win away at Exeter.

Elliott Nevitt scored the game’s only goal to give Rovers all three points at St James Park. 

He said: “I think we knew the type of performances we were going to need to come to tough places, like Exeter. Especially on the back of a long journey yesterday. To put out a performance like that in front of the brilliant travelling support, we’re obviously very pleased.

“Elliott’s goal was fantastic, and we were on the right foot from minute one. We expected to be 1-0 up, and not being able to find a second goal, and Exeter to have the amount of possession that they had.

“But we had some unbelievable chances to put the game to bed. Some one-on-ones, we hit the post twice. The goalkeeper’s made a couple of good saves. There was opportunities for us to get that second goal. 

“All credits to both sets of players, I thought they attacked the game really well. I think the crowd would go home today and think they’ve seen two very competitive teams, both trying to win.

“And all credit to the defensive lads, Doohan’s only had to make one save. I can’t remember many more. Every game is different, it asks you different things, and I think we answered our own questions, and got a valuable three points.”
