Micky: We've got a valuable three points

2 February 2022

Micky Mellon praised the reaction of his side in his post-match interview after Rovers returned to winning ways with a 1-0 triumph against Stevenage on Tuesday evening.

A second-half strike from Kieron Morris proved to be the difference as Rovers got back the winning feeling after a defeat at the hands of Forest Green on Saturday.

The gaffer gave his thoughts on Tuesday's win to local media, after the final whistle at Prenton Park.

"(It was) A really important win. I felt like the whole place felt like we knew that we'd lost a big game at the weekend, my experience as a manager gets that.

"But I said to the players at half time, you've got to remember to smile and remember how well we're doing, it became very, very serious. You've got to embrace the situation that we're in and go and enjoy it and take part in it.

"But I understand that's difficult psychologically because after Saturday that could've been a big body blow to a team with a weaker mentality, but the way they've gone out and got a result is terrific. It was all about the result, we had to get a win and we got another win and a clean sheet on an important night. So we keep going, that's what we do.

"I thought the crowd were tremendous, they knew that we needed them this evening because I know that they're experienced as well, I think we all felt on Saturday that we wanted to do much better.

"We've got a valuable three points."
