Calum: We can't have our own way all the time

21 March 2022

Defender Calum Macdonald offered his assessment to local media after Saturday's draw with Sutton United in South London.


The defender started his interview by talking about the tough conditions, which he believes played a massive factor in the game.


"You can tell that the wind was a massive factor in the game, first half we didn't deal with it as well as we would've liked to, but then saying that going in at 1-0 wasn't the end of the world, we knew if we could get through the first half and stay in the game the second half was going to be a different match and it definitely was.


Calum also revealed what Micky Mellon told the squad at the halftime break and how they were able to make such a drastic improvement in the second half.


"The message from the gaffer was that we were poor, we didn't compete as well as we wanted to, we didn't get high enough up the pitch. 


"We did know that second half if we were better in duels with the ball because we're a good team when we pass the ball around and we should probably get it down more often, but when we do we play some good stuff.


Calum also spoke about the physical nature of the game and the importance of Rovers matching their opponents.


"You know what you're going to get when you come to Sutton and teams like this they're physical and they put themselves about and it's up to us to match that, we can't have our own way all the time.


"Tranmere are historically well-known for being a good battling team as well, so we can stand up to them challenges and definitely beat them."
