TRANMERE Rovers face Cheltenham Town in what promises to be a ‘difficult’ League Two clash at Prenton Park this weekend.

Micky Mellon’s side kicked off their return to League Two with a 2-2 draw against Stevenage on Saturday.

During a press conference at the club’s Solar Campus training ground in Leasowe this afternoon, Mellon said he was pleased with the performance on the season’s opening day, but added there was room for constant improvement.

Reflecting on his team's performance last weekend, he said: "We did very well for all, of most of the game. We were pretty much in complete control.

"I was disappointed with the goals that we gave away, but I kind of understand why and we will improve with that.

"We have spoken about that on the training ground this week and will continue to do what we’re doing and keep trying to win games.

"I was very pleased with the performance.

"The lads did really well. It was a good start for us and a good platform for us to get better.

"It's still very early days, but you can only gauge from what you have already seen.

"From what we've seen the league’s going to be tough so we’ll have to make sure we can match that every week. We have to take one game at a time.

"Prenton Park should always be a fortress.

"It should always be a tough place to come to because it’s a fantastic football club.

"It's a place teams should come to and know they have to be very, very good to beat Tranmere. So that will never change.

"We have to stick to the principles that will bring us the success that we already have.

“We have to make sure we compete in every game we play, take the chances when we get them, keep clean sheets and ensure we comb over every game to see where we can improve.

"It will be great to see the fans here, good atmosphere.

"It's good to see Tranmere back in the Football League and I’m pleased to be a part of that, but the focus will always be on winning games.”
