Micky's thoughts ahead of Salford

17 September 2021

Micky Mellon feels his side are moving in the right direction ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two home fixture against Salford City at Prenton Park.

TRFC will be hoping to build on Tuesday night’s 4-1 victory over Leeds United U21s in the Papa John’s Trophy, when Gary Bowyer’s Ammies visit the Wirral.

Speaking to the local media, the manager says his squad are capable and moving in the right direction.

Mellon said: “We’re definitely moving in the right direction, and I definitely know the type of football that I want to play, and we’re still working with the players to try and do that.

 “We are very good defensively, very strong and resolute and those kinds of qualities can help us get better with the creating and scoring of chances.

“There’s a process that we have to go through to create more chances. We have to get the right team shape and system in order to do that.

“We are a very new group, and we are finding out about each other all the time. We recruited 18 players in the summer which is a lot of players to hit the ground running with.

“It’s about finding the consistency of what we want to see all of the time, and that takes time. To get good at something, you have to do it a lot, and keep doing it, and we are doing it all of the time in training.

“What I do know is that we are very capable and it’s putting the necessary training sessions on and encouraging the boys to go and do it on a Saturday, and I have no doubts at all those things will sort themselves out, because the signs are good.

“We will continue to put the best teams out that we think can get us results, by trusting the squad and letting them play.”

Mellon provided an update on goalkeeper Joe Murphy, who was forced off injured with concussion during last weekend’s game at Rochdale.

He added: “Joe is back in with us but not fully recovered, we need to take time and go through the process and make sure he’s okay.”
