TRANMERE Rovers take a break from League Two tonight to face Walsall in the Carabao Cup at Prenton Park.

Kicking off at 7.45pm, it is the first cup competition of the season for Micky Mellon's side.

Looking forward to the game in an interview on the club's website, Mellon said: "We'll pick the best team that we think can get us a win.

"When we're playing at home so we've got to win, that's what we've installed in the players since I've been here.

"It's great competition and it gives us an opportunity to keep moving the club forward.

"We know it's going to be a tough game and we're looking forward to it.

"Back here under the lights with that atmosphere and who wouldn't want to play on that pitch?"

Micky was asked about the prospect of going up against former Tranmere players Andy Cook and Josh Ginnelly.

"Two lads that gave us great service and I think that's now seven or eight lads that we've had, since I've been here, that are playing in League One now.

"It shows that we're doing the right things in training and improving them as players so they're good signs.

"We're obviously disappointed that they're not still playing for us but that's the nature of football.

"We'll keep producing good players and moving forward as a club".
