TRANMERE Road hit the road tomorrow for what promises to be 'tough' League Two clash with Yeovil Town.

Last Friday, Micky Mellon's side celebrated an odd-goal victory against rock-bottom Macclesfield Town at Prenton Park.

As a result, they are fifth on the table and in the playoff pack.

During a press conference at the club’s Solar Campus training ground ahead of Saturday’s game against 16th on the table Yeovil, Mellon said he hoped the squad would grind out a result and return with what vital points.

Looking forward to this weekend's trip to Huish Park, he said: "I know it's going to be a tough match. They (Yeovil) are well capable of anybody problems if they make mistakes.

"We've got to be as best prepared as we can be.

"Yeovil is a very, very difficult place to go. We're ready to pick up a valuable three points."

Saturday's game will be followed, on Tuesday night, by another away game, this time against eighth-placed Forest Green Rovers at The New Lawn.

Two games with, as Mellon explained, different challenges.

He said: "No two games in this league are the same, everyone is different and we have to make sure we go out there and give a good account of ourselves, it's just part and parcel of playing football. They have to adapt.

"As long as the goals and chances keep coming and we take them, I'm not really bothered who scores them."

Assessing Saturday's opponents, striker James Norwood said: "They've got a lot of pace. It almost looks like they've been unlucky with their results at the minute.

"From what I've seen they shouldn't be 16th in the league, but we’ve got to go there and treat it like they're 16th in the league and we're fifth.

“I think we have shown over the last 13 games that we can hold our own and get the wins, obviously we could have had a few more points as well, so things are positive for us.

“We've just got to go into these next two games and try to get as many points as possible.

"They are two tough away trips and, hopefully, we can go there and get results.”

Asked why he thinks Rovers have managed to adapt so well to League Two, he continued “We've always been one of the best teams in the league below.

"We've spent a long time there and most of the teams in League Two are from the conference and we’ve got players capable of playing at this level and the level above.

"So, we've got a chance to shine at this level; it's just the performances.

"We've played some good teams and are more than capable of holding our own."
