Micky's thoughts ahead of Barrow trip

4 February 2022

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon says he expects a difficult game away at Barrow on Saturday afternoon, and expects his side to be at their best to get something out of the game.

Speaking ahead of the trip to The Dunes Hotel Stadium, Mellon highlighted the Bluebirds’ strengths going into the game.

He said: “It’s always a difficult game [away at Barrow], they’re a group of committed players, good players. At their best, we know we’ll have a difficult afternoon. It’s always a difficult place to go. We know we’ll have to go up there and be a good version of ourselves to get something.

“We have the usual bumps and bruises that you get when you play two games a week, but we have a squad that can deal with that. We’ll get on with that, and it’ll give someone else an opportunity if they need to come in.

“We’re enjoying our football, we don’t care where we play. Every week is another challenge, and it’s another challenge this weekend. We want to see how we deal with that challenge, and pick up another three points. 

“Never have two games been the same, and the two games were close together. It’ll make for a really tough game, and I really mean that. It’ll be a tough game, but we’re looking forward to that.

“We’re also really excited about getting Lewis Warrington across, it’s great that we’re building these relationships with the local clubs, Premier League clubs, and the teams in Scotland. In order to build good teams, we need good players, and Lewis is a good player.

“He had his first day of training, and he showed all the qualities that we expected. Even at this early stage, we’re pleased for him to be here. We’re looking forward to helping him with his development.

“He’s industrious, and very technical. He has a huge energy, and he's pretty much an all-round midfield player. You couldn’t really pigeon-hole him into a single position. You couldn’t say he’s a holding midfielder, or an attacking midfielder. He’s local, so he knows what it means to the people.”
