TRANMERE Rovers travel take a break from National League action this weekend to face FC Halifax Town in the fourth qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup.

In an interview on the club's website ahead of Saturday's game at the MBi Shay Stadium, manager Micky Mellon spoke about some of his FA Cup memories and hopes he can create some more at Prenton Park during this campaign.

He said: "In a good career of 15 years, you only play in 15 FA Cups so you must embrace it, enjoy it and get as much history and memories out of it as you can.

"The fans enjoy it and it always has a special place in the football calendar.

"As a player, we got through to the quarter finals here at Tranmere which was very, very special, and as a coach, we got through to the same stage with Barnsley, so I've had some good times and got through to the latter stages in the competition and enjoyed the spotlight."

After a little run of three matches without defeat, the boss is looking to continue that momentum with a good result in the FA Cup.

"We don't prioritise any game over the other, we want to win every game we go into so the priority is always the next one.

"We're prepared and we’ll go there looking to continue the good things we’ve been doing and get a good result.

"Dylan (Mottley-Henry) has been given permission to play in the cup tie, so has Gerry (McDonagh) so that's positive that we can build on the momentum of them being in the group."
