Tranmere boss Micky Mellon has been crowned EFL League Two Manager of the Month for December.

The Scot guided Rovers to four successive league wins that have pushed the Birkenhead club up to fourth in the table, leaving them well placed for a promotion push in the second half of the current campaign.

Victories against Oldham Athletic, Exeter City, Leyton Orient and Barrow were achieved without conceding a single goal.

But on receiving the news of his accolade, he remained typically honest.

Speaking to the Globe, Mellon said: "I'm really pleased, not just for myself - and I don't mean to be cheesy here - it's not just about me.

"I'm just the guy that comes up and speaks to you and tells you how everything is. But behind and around and above me are a lot of fantastic people, who deserve a lot of credit for the performances that we've put in, in the last month, and absolutely the players. It's about all this.

"And then - and I mean this - the fan base. They've helped drive this forward as well. It's a big massive collective.

"So whenever you get Manager of the Month I always say it's for the fans, because it belongs to the football club, it doesn't belong to me.

"So I shall be doing the same again with this award that we're very grateful for.

"But of course we've got to go again and we've got to keep winning games of football because the ultimate thing is to try and be successful at the end of the season.

"It won't really change the way I feel about the next game, but it's a big well done to everybody. It belongs to all of us."
