Micky: That was a Tranmere Rovers performance!

18 September 2021

Manager Micky Mellon described his side’s win against Salford City as a ‘Tranmere Rovers performance’.

Rovers ran out 2-0 winners against Gary Bowyer’s promotion hopefuls, with goals coming from the penalty spot courtesy of Keiron Morris and a first professional league goal from Elliott Nevitt.

The boss was pleased with the way his side conducted themselves throughout the match, in a contest which saw both teams receive red cards, Jay Spearing the man to be dismissed for Rovers just before the half time interval.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Mellon said: “We were very much like the Tranmere I know we can be. We showed all the qualities needed to win football matches at this level and we were more like our old selves, and the entire place was like its old self.

“There was a great atmosphere and the crowd got right behind us. It was a really pleasing afternoon and a well-deserved three points.

“We feel we are still finding our way as a squad and we felt when we were playing against back threes, we didn’t have a dominate system. We had the opportunity today to play more of the way we want to.

“We still changed the system in the second half in order to keep a foot hold of the game as they (Salford) went very direct. We have got players who can come in at any time and that is going to be very important throughout the course of the season.

“That was a Tranmere Rovers performance, not only by the players but the supporters too. I really enjoyed today.”
