Micky disappointed not to take all three points after improved second half

20 March 2022

Rovers boss Micky Mellon gave his assessment on the Sutton game to local media post-match after the SWA fought back to earn a point on the road in South London.


Micky was as honest as ever after the final whistle, he spoke about the first and second half performances and his overall thoughts on the result.


"(In the first half) We didn't compete, we didn't do the necessaries that were needed in a game like this. We didn't win enough headers, we never turned them around, we never did the running that was necessary, we lost too many battles and the only positive in the first half is that we stayed in the game.


"We came out for the second half, (we) made a little change to the way we wanted to play, we started to run forward, we started to win the knockdowns and we are really disappointed we haven't won the game in the end, (with) the opportunities that we created we would have expected to take them.


"So we're disappointed that we didn't get the three points, (we) understand that we're playing against one of our rivals at the top end of the division away from home and a point is always the minimum you would want to take in terms of being positive.


"(We're) disappointed with the first half performance, absolutely disappointed. But second half we were much, much better and more like a team that's challenging to be in the shakedown at the end of the season.
