More Micky Reaction To The Albion Game

More Micky Reaction To The Albion Game

Manager Micky Mellon has spoken in more depth following our game against West Bromwich Albion.

Speaking to the Official Site having had more time to reflect on the performance, Mellon explained that obviously we had hoped for a very good test against the Premier League side and in his opinion all over the pitch we certainly got that, and he also felt we definitely improved and grew into the game as time ticked by.

'We knew we were going to be tested all over the pitch and that's what happened. It was a fantastic workout for the lads and we've seen how they operate against players from that level. I'm really proud of the boys as they hung in there and continued to try to play the way we wanted them to. It's been a tough couple of days for them and it's important that we get their fitness in and they certainly have had to work (tonight).'

Mellon goes on to say that he feels we can be disappointed with the manner that we conceded the two goals, because we him in the build up we had probably given the ball away too cheaply, but of course that kind of sharpness comes with more games and more fitness so he hopes it will be an area that takes care of itself as we edge nearer to the start of the season properly, but overall for him, there were more positives than negatives that came out of it.

'When you do that against top quality opposition they will punish you so that is a lesson learnt.'

Another plus point from the night was the second half appearance of goalkeeper Callum Burton, with the England youth international making his first appearance since turning pro at the end of last season and it was obviously a big night for him and the manager feels he acquitted himself well and is continuing to show that he's an incredibly gifted stopper.
