Micky: I'm really pleased for everybody

9 February 2022

Rovers boss Micky Mellon was full of praise for his squad in his post-match interview after Tuesday's victory at home to Swindon Town at Prenton Park.

It was an emotional night at Prenton Park as the Rovers family came together to pay tribute to young supporter Nate Gidman, after his passing earlier in the week. 

The celebrations after both the first goal and at the end of the game will live long in the memory of those in attendance, the boss praised his side for paying tribute to Nate in the best way possible.

"That just shows you what kind of club we are, we care, we care about our supporters, we really do.

"The players have done that offering back and celebrating the victory they wanted to make sure that they paid tribute to young Nate and his family, who we're all thinking about and are a part of the Tranmere family.

The gaffer also gave his verdict on proceedings to local media, he emphasized the importance of good decision making.

"It was a really hard-fought win, we knew we had to get an awful lot right, we were focused on knowing that because we know Swindon are a good side.

"We managed to make really good decisions and when we had the ball we also made good decisions, it was a really good night's work. We scored goals at good times and I'm really pleased for everybody.

Tuesday's triumph saw Kane Hemmings open up his Rovers account with a mightily impressive brace, Micky talked about the striker's impact since his arrival from Burton last month.

"I think he's been brilliant for us since he came. I know that people will judge him on his goals, but I think he's just given us that knowhow at that end of the pitch and the young players around him are just thriving off it.

"His work rate is second to none, his competitiveness is second to none, he's a very driven lad and we're delighted to have him here.

"It's great that he got rewarded tonight with a couple of goals, I'm really pleased for him.
