Micky: The players are attacking everything we want to do

22 October 2021

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon says that his side are moving in the right direction, but need to keep up the right consistency.

Speaking ahead of the visit of Northampton Town to Prenton Park on Saturday, the boss says he is pleased with the side’s recent form, but doesn’t want to see performances slip.

He said: “You want rewards for your hard work, and you want to see what we’re doing is giving us a good chance of winning games.

“The players are attacking everything we want to do, they’re hungry to want to do better as well. We keep pushing and pushing, keep that consistency.

“We’re obviously pleased with where we’re heading, and moving in the right direction, but need to keep getting better and better all the time.”

Rovers are back at home, following back-to-back away games, and Mellon says the players love playing at Prenton Park.

“We love playing in front of the fans. That’s what the football club is all about, the fans. We’re here trying to create a football team for them, and that they feel worthwhile coming to watch.

“All the things that we’re doing now is expected of a Tranmere team and a Tranmere player. We’ve got to make sure that we deliver on that for them.

“One of the other things we need to deliver on is consistency. We’ve created that level now, and we want to keep getting better and better.”

The visitors, Northampton, sit a place below Rovers in sixth in the League Two table. The manager says that it will be another difficult fixture, but is looking forward to playing at home.

“Another difficult game, another different game. So we’re going to have to find a way of how we play and the strengths we have. We’ll go into that game, and we’re excited by it because we love playing at home. 

“Another day of training on Friday to fine tune things, and we’ll pick a team that will represent us properly. One that will try to get us another positive result against a strong Northampton team.”
