TRANMERE Rovers boss Micky Mellon believes his side's 2-0 victory over Solihull Moors on Bank Holiday Monday has provided a much-needed confidence boost.

But during a press confidence ahead of Saturday's home game against Dover Athletic (5.30pm kick-off), he said there was no room for complaceny in the season's early days.

He continued: "The win on Monday was a real boost and gives us a great opportunity to go out and put points on the board.

"But I say that with caution, because there's hard work that needs to be done.

"We know how difficult the challenges are in this league, so we need to be prepared properly, attack and try to pick up some points.

"It's still very early days and the league is very, very tight.

"I expect it to be like that until the end of season, so we just have to concentrate on what we're doing and make sure we take care of business; working hard on the training ground and doing what you have to do on the pitch.

"We also need to go on run of results; we've got two results on the trot and so we will continue to try and build on our success."

Assessing this weekend's opponents, he said: "You always get a tough game against Dover.

"They will always be at the right end of the table and so you know they are usually one of the competing teams for the places and succes at the top end.

"We know pretty much what we'll expect to face on the day and will have to be prepared to deliver for what promises to be another tough game."

Praising the fans' contribution on matchdays, Mellon continued: "There's a great togetherness at Tranmere now.

"We all come prepared to do our jobs and the fans come along to get right behind the team and make noise, make the atmosphere and gives us something to enjoy watching.

"On Monday they turned up in great numbers and the Saturday before, when we go behind the crowd rally.

"They can be every bit as satisfied as the players for getting us back into the game."
