Micky's reaction after well earned point at Forest Green

25 September 2021

Micky Mellon was pleased with his side’s performance in their goalless draw at league leaders Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.

Both sides had chances in an end-to-end fixture in Nailsworth, with TRFC going down to ten men late on following Calum MacDonald’s second booking.

And Mellon was pleased with the desire showcased by his Tranmere players to earn a point on their travels.

Mellon said: “We could possibly have punished them, but I always try to be fair and honest because that’s what we are here at Tranmere, but it could have gone either way at any time.

“The two teams have really gone for it and tried to play good football, so it was a really wide-open game and some of our defending was fantastic, and their goalkeeper has made some great saves as well.

“If we are thinking of our performance, we got into some really good areas away from home at a team at the top end of the league, there were enough opportunities for us to do a bit better.

“We got into some good crossing areas as well and we could have been a bit better at that, but over the course of the game, the desire and the fight were what Tranmere is all about.

“We were roared on by a fantastic crowd and we’ll take the point, but we’re a bit disappointed as if you come here and get those opportunities, you want to take them, but it was an open game.

“We wanted to find a way of playing which suited the group and I think that we have found that now, we didn’t have to change the shape to deal with their shape, we had enough in us to deal with them when they got their wing backs out, and we caused them problems when our wide-men got into pockets and out wide.

“We got in behind them really well, so I’m pleased with the shape but always want to win every game that we play.”
