Micky's reaction to Bradford defeat

14 September 2022

Rovers boss Micky Mellon expressed his disappointment at Tuesday night's result, as the SWA were edged out by Bradford City at Prenton Park.

Speaking to local media, Micky offered a summary of the game, highlighting the poor defending which led to Bradford's second goal, while also admitting his frustration that the squad didn't build on Kane Hemmings' equaliser.

"I think the first half we were well off the tempo of what's needed in order to create any kind of threat, we huffed and puffed. We had a chat at half time and we came out second half and we upped the tempo, we started to look more like what we should be doing in order to try and get results and we score a really good goal and get ourselves back in the game. Then we have a couple of chances to make it two and we don't take them.

"Then the game goes into a lull and we keep trying to get the tempo up. Then to give away a goal like that, when we've got three centre-backs, cross into the box, is difficult to understand. It's going to be difficult if you don't deal with them to get results, because that's why you have three centre-backs in the box to go and deal with that.

"So, it's a sore one for us, because we did come out and show a lot of fire. But we just didn't do enough, we didn't take the chances when they came and Bradford did."
