Tranmere Rovers will look to pick themselves up for the game against Doncaster Rovers tomorrow.
It’s a big ask for any team to get back up from a 5-0 loss in the previous match, but manager Micky Mellon insists his players want to put things right.
It will be a tall ask however, with the opponent sitting in at 7th in the table currently, compared to the 20th place for the home side.
Doncaster will be in high spirits coming off the back of the 7-1 beating they gave Southend in the last round, making the Super Whites job that much harder.
Speaking to the local media ahead of the fixture on Saturday, Mellon said:
“Everybody knows where they are at, and the good thing is that the boys are keen to learn and get better and keep improving all of the time.
“We want to get the maximum out of them and squeeze and squeeze and try and make them the best that they can be, and ultimately you need to win games and that’s what it’s about.
“They (the players) are not robots, they are humans with emotions, and they want to put things right.
Tranmere’s task of getting a result will be even harder with their forward Stefan Payne being suspended after accumulating too many yellow cards.
A hefty injury list including Harvey Gilmour, Calum Woods, Mark Ellis, Evan Gumbs as well as Ollie Banks, Ishmael Miller, and Morgan Ferrier will not feature.
A potential boost for the Super Whites could be the returns of Corey Blackett-Taylor and Darren Potter.
Trivia: Tranmere’s last win over Doncaster Rovers came back in February 2007 with a 1-0 triumph at Prenton Park.
