TRANMERE Rovers' boss Micky Mellon says his side will take lessons learned from their FA Cup exit with them when they face Gateshead in the National League on Saturday.

The team were beaten 5-0 by Peterborough United in the Emirates FA Cup first round replay at Prenton Park last night and left the competition.

During a press conference at the club’s Solar Campus training ground this afternoon, Mellon said the priority is now on winning National League games as the campaign continues.

He said: "We will try to take the lessons from the game, in order to try to improve us.

"We always like to try to take everything from every game.

"I don't believe many of us thought we would win the FA Cup, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t take it seriously or wanted a good run in it.

"But now it's done and dusted, we’re back on with our priority now, which is very much about winning league games at our own level."

Looking to this weekend’s fixture, Mellon continued: "It will be a good game, we’re looking forward to it.

"We will go up there and keep fighting for Tranmere.

"We know that we can cause them (Gateshead) problems, because we've got good players."
