Tranmere Rovers boss Micky Mellon was delighted with the resolve his players showed in recovering from the disappointing of losing a 2-0 lead against Sutton United to go to 2-2 and going on to win 3-2 with a 92nd minute strike from Michael Ihiekwe.

The manager admitted it could and should have been more comfortable, but he was pleased with the response from his team to get the three points.

He told Tranmere Player HD: “It was hard to know what had happened, but to show the character and the composure to find a way back into it again, the boys deserve a lot of credit.

“It was brilliant the way that they never panicked and kept believing they would get another chance and we had two in the dying moments in fact with Cookie (Andy Cook) having a shot which he will feel he could have done better with.

“To see that goal going in at the end makes it worthwhile being a Tranmere fan.

“We should have been comfortable and out of sight but their lad has hit a great strike for 2-1 and I just don’t know what’s going on for the second one.

“We have got a great result and we’re still very much in the race.”
