Micky Mellon is happy Tranmere kept ‘the momentum going’ with Tuesday night’s 1-0 victory over Dover Athletic at the Crabble Athletic Ground.

Andy Cook’s first-half strike – his 25th in the Vanarama National League – gave Rovers the points and kept them still in with a chance of winning the title. Tranmere consolidated second spot and are now seven points behind leaders Macclesfield Town, still with a game in hand.

If Tranmere won their final three games and Macclesfield failed to win in both of their last two matches, Rovers could clinch the title and automatic promotion. While it still remains a slim hope, Mellon was delighted with the spirit of his side to grab victory that keeps the dream alive after the long trip to Dover.

The Rovers’ boss said: “It’s a massively important win for us. We know how difficult it is to get results down here, they keep asking you question after question, so I’m delighted to get a valuable three points.

“The battling qualities and fighting spirit right throughout the team and togetherness to come down here and get a result was great.”
