Micky Mellon sat down for his weekly press conference on Thursday afternoon to discuss the visit of Carlisle United to Prenton Park.
The Boss reflected on the past weeks of results and is satisfied that he has a ‘good team’ at his disposal following performances in recent weeks.
“We’ve got a good team. A good, young team who we said at the start of the season would be developing and improving all of the time. We just need to keep pushing them on and keeping going. We always want to learn from the game before and get better at things we feel we need to get better at.
“The main thing is that we are pleased that we’ve got a good team. The team represent Tranmere properly and plays football in the way that we want them to play. I’m enjoying working with the players.
“I see us making the right decisions at the right times and the having right qualities in certain moments. The important thing is that we understand how we want to play and what ‘good' looks like playing that way. We have to keep standards high and keep doing that.”
Paul Simpson’s Carlisle make the trip to the Wirral having only suffered three defeats so far this season. Micky is under no illusion as to the challenge in front of his side this weekend in what promises to be an exciting encounter.
“They obviously know how to not lose games. They stick together and they keep going. All games in this league are tough, it doesn’t matter where teams are in the league. Every team that you play against is a really good challenge.
“Carlisle is our next obstacle and it’s a very tough one but we’re looking forward to the challenge of it and the challenge of playing the way we want to play. We’ll need to find their weaknesses as we always try to do."
Rovers will become very familiar with The Cumbrians over the next week having been drawn against them in the Emirates FA Cup. However, Micky is not looking beyond an important three points at stake this weekend.
“All of our focus is on Saturday’s game, all of it. We only really turn our attention to any future games at quarter to five on Saturday night once we’ve reflected on that game.”
