Micky: I think it's all credit to the players

24 November 2021

Rovers boss Micky Mellon credited the players as they battled back to earn a well-deserved victory at home to Bradford City on Tuesday night.

Goals from Kieron Morris and Paul Glatzel saw Rovers turn the game on it's head and bag the three points for Mellon's side, who climb to 10th in the league standings.

Mellon revealed that he had anticipated a tough game against Bradford and expressed his happiness that Rovers were able to backup their showing from the weekend.

"It was a hard-fought game and it was a game that to backup a good result at the weekend, you've always got to try and win the next one.

"We knew it was going to be tough against a really well organised Bradford team, who we knew were going to make it very difficult for us. 

"So to come from a goal down and play the way that we did, I think it's all credit to the players and I always say that it is, we give them the framework and they have to go and execute that and today they went and executed it, so it's all credit to them.

Mellon also provided a detailed analysis on the encounter, highlighting the threat of turnovers from Bradford, he explained how his side were able to nulify this threat and praised the team for sticking to the task at hand.

"I thought the goal they scored was massively against the run of play. I think they always had wee bit of a threat on turnovers, I think they were going to try and hit us on turnovers from our deep to middle block, they were going to try and turn us over and run into the gaps they thought we were going to attack in. So you've either got to be really good with the ball to nulify that or stay at home and wait to get a good position and then leave.

"But, the players kept going and we just kept saying to them let's stick to what we're doing, don't come off what we're doing. We moved things around a wee bit to cause them some problems and give them some things to think about and I think that the boys carried that out well as well. 

"We scored a couple of goals so it's a good night for the club."
