TRANMERE Rovers are preparing for what promises to be a tough League Two clash with seventh on the table Exeter City this weekend.

Micky Mellon's side renewed assault on the playoffs gathered pace last Saturday after a hard-fought narrow victory over rock-bottom Notts County at Prenton Park.

Connor Jennings' second half goal put Rovers at ninth on the league table.

The victory was the SuperWhites' third in four matches, a run that has also seen Mellon's team only concede one goal.

During a press conference at the club’s Solar Campus training ground in Leasowe, the manager said he was keen to see the run of good form continue through the remaining 12 games of the season.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s trip to Exeter, he said: "There all important now, wouldn’t say there are any more important than others.

"We're looking forward to getting down and playing, finishing off the preparations.

"It should be a good game."

He continued "Everybody knows, roughly, what they're fighting for now.

"There's lot of desperation to get more points and work their way through the league.

"There's an opportunity to do something, so every game's tough for different reasons, because everybody’s fighting for different prizes.

"Saturday will be the same.

"It's always a difficult place to go and a team that's up at the right end of the division and contesting their way out of it.

"So, it will be a difficult one, but one that we're looking forward to, because we are in good form and enjoying our football.

"We've got to go out there and pick up the points in what is a really exciting part of the season."

Assessing his side's performance, Mellon said: "We're defending better as a group, quite honestly.

"We're really focussing and showing the right mentality and seeing the benefit.

"We're working hard on the training ground, working hard in the analysis room and looking to improve on our performances."
