Manager Micky Mellon has said he’s backing the players to bounce back from their FA Cup disappointment and take all three points from Cambridge United this weekend.

We travel to the Abbey Stadium on Saturday looking to continue our charge on the League Two top spots and Mellon knows we can’t take anything for granted because Cambridge will prove to be a very tough opponent again.

Speaking to the Official Site the manager explained.

‘They have a great attitude as a group. They have won a lot of games at home in the last few seasons after getting promoted so we will have to go there with the right mentality. It will no doubt be a tough game, they’re doing very well and it’s a tough place to go. They are very competitive and we know Richard Money will have the organised.’

Mellon goes on to say that all the ‘warning’ signs are there if we take them lightly because he knows we will get punished so it’s important that the team go there with the right attitude and the right mentality and approach the game as we have approached games so far this season that we have done well in and if we do that he backs us to get the result that we want.

Looking back to the FA Cup game against Preston, he added that he felt we were very unlucky on the day and that we were obviously disappointed with the loss, but it was a tight game and he felt we played very well in the second half so he’s expecting the group to show a reaction to that and put in another good performance and learn from the mistakes in the game that had been highlighted so we continue to improve.
