TRANMERE Rovers return to National League action this weekend, after an enforced two-week break, facing Torquay United at Prenton Park.

Rovers have been without a game since the 4-0 win over Maidstone United on November 25, but with Woking in FA Cup action last weekend, it was a blank weekend for Tranmere who were scheduled to travel to the Kingfield Stadium.

During a press conference at Prenton Park ahead of Saturday's game, Micky Mellon says the side have made the most of the break, with more training.

He said: "We always look at the positives and the break has given us a chance to get some of the injured players back into the group.

"We've had a bit more training ground under our belts, so we've made the most of that.

"The players look very sharp in training and we’ll be ready to go in what will be a tough game against an improving Torquay side.

"We've got the lads as best prepared as we can and they’re all raring to go.

"Everybody is champing at the bit to play so it’s a good position for me to be in as the manager."

Assessing this weekend's opponents, Mellon said: ""It's going to be another tough game.

"I think they are improving under the new manager and are training very hard.

"But at the end of the day, we have to focus on our performance. We've got the quality of players that can win games.

"We have to get as many points as possible."
