TRANMERE Rovers League One campaign continues tonight, when Micky Mellon's squad face Southend United at Prenton Park.

Rovers will be aiming for a second win in a row in the third-tier when they host the Shrimpers (kick-off 7.45pm).

Assessing tonight's opponents in an interview on the club's website, Mellon said: "We've watched a lot of Southend and we know that they have some good players and it will be a difficult game so we will have to be at our best in order to try and get a really, really important result under the lights.

"We know what it is going to be like on a Friday night, we know that the atmosphere will be absolutely electric at Prenton Park.

"The crowd are creating a culture here, they are becoming a part of what we do, and they know that they have an important part to play in everything that we do, knowing what their share of the performance is.

"It's a great relationship at the minute. it is a very together club and we are enjoying that, we are in a good place as a football club, we just have to keep facing forward, keep on improving and always understand what all our parts are in a performance, in moving this fantastic club forward."

Mellon added that there always room for improvement.

He said: "Everybody is looking for consistency and I think the important thing is to not believe we have got anywhere close to where we want to get to.

"We want to make sure that everyone, players and staff, understands that we have to keep improving.

"We want to get better all the time.

"We want to keep getting better and of course we want consistency and good performances from the players as that will give us a good chance of getting results in games.

"We probably have to be a bit careful in saying we are where we want to be yet.

"We have had a couple of decent results and on the whole there have been some really good performances so we want to keep improving all the time and I want us to keep getting better.

"All games in this level for us are very difficult and we know how hard we have got to work.
