Micky on visit to Orient

6 May 2022

Rovers boss Micky Mellon said that the squad are looking forward to Saturday's trip to Leyton Orient, which they must win to stand any chance of breaking into the playoff spots.

After a long and gruelling season it will come as good news that Micky was able to provide a positive injury update ahead of the clash, with the Boss revealing that 'Everybody's fit and ready to go'.

"Everybody's fit and ready to go. All the ones that are missing were the ones that were missing before, the longer-term ones like Knight-Percival. 

"Apart from that, everyone is fit and ready to go."

Micky didn't play down the importance of having a good squad selection, saying it gives the SWA 'the best possible chance of getting a result'. He also touched on what he expects from the encounter in East London.

"Obviously we want to be able to go there and give ourselves the best possible chance of getting a result and we will have a full squad to pick from, so that should give us a good chance.

"We honestly know it's going to be a tough game but we are excited and pleased to be involved in games like this but obviously we've got to take care of business and try get a result against a good Leyton Orient side. We're looking forward to it."

Saturday is the definition of a must-win game as Tranmere will need to secure three points to stand any chance of making the playoffs, Micky gave an indication as to what these sorts of games are like and the mindset of the squad going into Saturday.

"We understand that we've got to win a game of football but that should never change, Tranmere should try and win every game and should be expected to win every game.

"We like the levels of expectations on us and Saturday is no different."
