Tranmere Rovers boss Micky Mellon says his side “won’t be reckless with anything” ahead of their winner-takes-all match up against Salford City in the Trophy on Tuesday.

The Super Whites are currently second in Northern Group C, only behind Salford on goal difference, with both already through to the knockout stages of the competition.

Mellon said: “We are a football club that is expected to get results and I expect Tuesday to be no different.”

Mellon’s men are in sparkling form of late, cruising to victory away at MK Dons, thanks to Aston Villa loanee Rushian Hepburn-Murphy’s superb hat-trick, and earning a replay against League One rivals Wycombe Wanderers.

Their 5-0 away defeat to promotion hopefuls Sunderland is Rovers’ only blemish since October 5th, stemming back six games in all competitions.

Last time out in the EFL Trophy, against Villa under 21’s, Conner Jennings capped off a Man of the Match performance with the winning goal.

Despite the competition’s poor reputation with fans, the game was watched by over 900 fans at Prenton Park.

Mellon said: “We want to try to win the game; it is another opportunity for us to try and get another result.”

A number of changes are expected from Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Wycombe, as Tranmere prepare for a busy Christmas schedule.

The game will be played at 19:45 on Tuesday.
