Micky: We'll get back on the things that have got us to second in the league

18 February 2022

Rovers boss Micky Mellon gave an insight into how the squad recuperate from setbacks as his side prepares for the weekend's clash with Port Vale at Prenton Park.

Saturday's encounter with Port Vale offers Rovers a welcome opportunity to return to winning ways after suffering from consecutive league defeats for the first time since October. Micky explained the process after a defeat and how the squad have been preparing for the weekend.

"Obviously we don't like losing games of football, but we come straight back in again and we'll get back on the things that have got us to second in the league.

"We looked over that as staff, we watch the games back again and if there's any area we believe we can improve or learn from then we'll have that ready for the players when they come in.

"It will be about making sure that we understand that all we've got to do is get on to the things that we know that we can do well and have been doing well, in order to win games of football.

"That's what it's been about today (Thursday) it will be the same tomorrow and then a cracking game at the weekend."

Off the pitch Rovers have appointed former striker James Vaughan as sporting director this week, Micky touched on his relationship with James and the important role he'll play within the club.

"I really enjoy working with James. It's an area that between me and the chairman, who is really busy, that needs to be filled in order to keep the club moving forward smoothly. That contact with James every day will help me to try and keep things moving forward."

The gaffer believes that James' prior experience with the club will help him in his new role, but cited his relationship skills and his drive as other key factors for his return to the Wirral Peninsula.

"It's got to, but, it will help because I believe that he'll be good at his job. It will help because I know that he's good at relationships and he gets on well with everybody and he knows, like me, that we're all here to make Tranmere better. It will be a good appointment for everybody."
