Micky looks ahead to Friday night football

8 October 2021

Rovers boss Micky Mellon praised his in-form Tranmere team in his press conference ahead of Friday night's showdown with Colchester United at Prenton Park.

Rovers have been in a rich vein of form in recent weeks, with just one defeat in the last seven games and Mellon will be hoping his team can maintain this level of form with another strong result against a Colchester side who will be looking to break a three-game winless streak in the League.

Mellon expressed his happiness at Rovers' recent run of form and his hope that they will continue to improve.

"It's good that we are where we are but we still believe that we can get better. We still want to keep improving and that will happen with time, as relationships will build and grow and from that, the performances will get better. So we'll continue to keep getting better."

"We feel we're in a good place at the minute, but we still know that it's going to take a lot of hard work to stay there and to keep moving it forward. We'll keep pushing it all the time in order to keep trying to improve."

Mellon also offered his thoughts on Colchester, who have an impressive track record away from home, with Hayden Mullins' side yet to lose an away game in the league so far this season.

"They have a good set of players, a very good squad. They have unbelievable experience within the group, players who have played for good clubs, so you know there's a lot of talent in that group."

"So you've got to make sure that you turn up with your best performance because if you don't you know they are capable of causing you a lot of problems because of the talent they have in their squad."

Mellon also added that there are no fitness issues within the Rovers ranks at the minute and confirmed that 23-year-old Callum Macdonald will be back available, having served his suspension.

"We're ok, everyone's back. Callum Macdonald is also back from his suspension so we should have a full side to choose from."
