TRANMERE Rovers' boss Micky Mellon believes a run of positive results is around the corner as their National League campaign continues.

During a press conference at the club's Solar Campus training ground in Leasowe ahead of Saturday's away game against Bromley, the manager said his side was working hard to overcome the frustration caused by poor results in the season's opening weeks.

Rovers – currently 18th on the league table – have so far won three, lost five and drawn four of their games.

During today's press conference, Mellon said he hoped to use this poor run of results as motivation to do better.

He continued: "Under the circumstances we've been able to hit the grass and keep people ticking along.

"We're hoping to get a lot of work done.

"When you're not getting results and it's not going your way then it has to have an effect.

"There are lot of emotions, and I don't know how you put a measure on that.

"There's a lot of frustration because we know that we haven't had the rub of the green at times and could be better in certain situations at times, but have been good at others.

"So, there's a lot of frustration and, of course, the measurement of where we are on the league table and results isn't good enough.

"We're aware of that and always honest enough to admit that.

"So, we're looking forward to putting it right.

"I can't fault any of the lads or any of the staff."

He added: "It's important that you’re able to fight hard and get back up.

"We have to get on the pitch and do our job, so can't let emotion get too much in the way of that.

"Scoring goals is the responsibility of everybody. I like to keep football simple.

"I know that the blame game has well and truly begun, but I’m very focused, trying to do the best I can to help my players.

"As long as we’re creating, or trying to create, chances and trying to give the team a plan, we’ll just keep trying to improve on that.

"There are little things that we can do better."

Assessing his team, Mellon added: "I have a strong group of players with an awful lot of talent.

"We're very tight, very united and very determined to do well for Tranmere because it's such a fantastic football club.

"We will be good to go and ready for a good result on Saturday.

"Defensively, we're still very, very strong.

"We're working very hard to try to score goals and will continue to do so.

"We have to keep believing and keep going."
