Micky's reaction to Salford draw

12 January 2022

Rovers boss Micky Mellon gave his verdict on Tuesday evening's encounter after a second-half strike from Paul Glatzel earned his side a well-deserved point on the road at Salford.

Mellon spoke openly about the affair at the Peninsula Stadium, going into detail on the physical nature of the match, while also speaking about the goal that gave Salford the lead and how his men reacted in the second-half.

"It wasn't a game for the purest, that's the first thing to say. But, like I always say, you've got to be good at what the game's asking you. It was a physical game, it was about knockdowns, it was about coming out on top.

"We obviously gave away a goal in the first half that was uncharacteristic of us, but, you have to show the qualities and the resilience and keep banging away and keep believing that the opportunity will come at some stage.

"We spoke about it at half time, we said look, we don't know when it's going to come but we know that we will be good enough if we continue to do what we're doing and keep pressing forward to gain an opportunity. We did that and we were very grateful that we were able to take that opportunity.

"I don't remember Salford having many opportunities, they got a lot of corners and throws in, and probably the same for us. It was just a good old-fashioned league two battle, frosty pitch, floodlights, pitch starting to get rutted, all that kind of stuff and that's what you'll get now for the next couple of weeks, so, we've got to be good at that."
