TRANMERE Rovers' manager Micky Mellon believes his side is heading in the right direction for a positive end to the season as the National League campaign continues.

During a press conference at club’s Solar Campus training ground, Mellon said the players would use this Saturday's game against Woking as the perfect opportunity to grab much-need points.

Rovers are currently eighth on the table.

Victory on Saturday could lift them to fifth.

Looking ahead to Saturday's game, Mellon told the Globe: "It's a huge opportunity for us, as there are not many games in the league this weekend.

"The games are Saturday-Saturday now, so you want to try and get your players refreshed and well-prepared for the games.

"It's a huge game which gives us a chance to try and peck away at the table and jump a few places, there's no doubt about that."

Assessing their opponents, he continued: "Woking are doing well. They gave us a good game of football the last time we played them.

"We scored some good goals to get a victory.

"They are well capable, if you let them, to go any team in this league.

"So, we'll try to do everything we possibly can to keep the form that we have at the minute and try to get those massively important three points."

On his team’s performance so far this season, he continued: "I think we're in a good position to go and attack for a good finish.

"We will take every step as it comes, work hard every day in training and keep trying to improve all the time.

"There’s a lot of good work going on over the last 17 games.

"We're heading in the right direction, but still want to improve and keep winning games.

"We're pleased with the way everything’s going at the moment.

Rovers National League campaign continued with a 1-1 draw against Barrow last Saturday.

A 94th-minute equaliser from James Norwood cancelled out Byron Harrison’s early spot kick, which had given the hosts the lead.

Reflecting on the result, Mellon said: "We would rather have won the game, but you have always got to respect every point away from home and Barrow is always as tough place to go.

"Personally, I've never got much up there over the years. It's always a difficult place to go.

"You need to work very hard to come away with anything there.

"So under the circumstances, we're pleased about getting a goal late in the game, but we were disappointed not to have taken all three points."
