TRANMERE Rovers will be aiming for a repeat victory against Cambridge United when the two sides face each other in League Two action this weekend.

When they last met, at Prenton Park, in December James Norwood earned Micky Mellon's side a 1-0 victory.

During a press conference at the club's Solar Campus training ground, Mellon admitted Saturday's match at Abbey Stadium will be a challenge.

Rovers, 12th on the table, head to the Abbey Stadium having returned to winning ways in League Two after goals from Kieron Morris and James Norwood saw off nine-man Stevenage at Prenton Park with a 2-0 victory last weekend.

Colin Calderwood's Cambridge side are currently 19th in the League and seven points clear of the relegation places. They beat Port Vale 1-0 at home last weekend.

Assessing Saturday's opponents, Mellon said: "I've watched Cambridge’s last five or six games and I know that they are a much-improved team with pace and power.

"They are well-organised as a group so it will be a tough game, to win games you have to get most of the important things right, and that is my mentality and Cambridge will be no different to that.

"At both ends of the pitch you have to get them right and then you get what you deserve at the end, so it will be a tough game, one we are really looking forward to as we believe that we are playing well."

With the season entering its finishing straight, Rovers find themselves on the cusp of the play-off positions.

Mellon believes that if his players show consistency in their form, then Tranmere can be in and around the promotion shake-up for the play-offs come the end of the campaign in May.

He added: "We have a good group of players who can make an impact at this level consistently, we believe.

"We'll keep working on that consistency and we know that we’ll be in an amongst it at the end."
