Pre-Match Micky Mellon (Wrexham)

Manager gives us his pre-match thoughts ahead of derby day at Prenton Park

Micky Mellon says that he and his squad are looking forward to the local derby against Wrexham at Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon (3:00pm kick-off).

The manager said: “They’re all big games and we want three points from all of them. This one has a bit of added spice to it because it is a local derby so we’re looking forward to it.

“The atmosphere is always different when it’s a local derby, we know we have to go out and represent the Club and the fans properly.

“We have one of the best defensive records in the league but we need to balance that up with scoring goals, we know that. We’ve got to make chances and take them so we’re working hard to address that.

“The boys are always working hard and they’re as determined as we all are to put the ball in the back of the net and get results.

“With Jay McEveley being unavailable, we have been looking at different things we want to try and do in order to score goals so we endeavour to try and find a way to do that.”
