Micky Mellon praised his Tranmere Rovers side for the way they kept going and going to secure a dramatic victory over Burton Albion.
Stoppage-time strikes from Ollie Banks and Stefan Payne ensured a breathless turnaround after the Brewers had looked well set for the win, thanks to Lucas Akins’ 66th-minute penalty.
But his opposite number was understandably delighted with the resilience of his own players, given they had looked more likely to concede again rather than level things up following Akins’ opener.
“They keep going and they keep going and they keep going, and to win a game like that in the last minute when you’re 1-0 down is obviously a moment in football that you have to really enjoy,” said Mellon.
“It was a mad game. I’ll look back over it and I don’t really know how we ended up with three potential left-backs in a back four if you include Manny Monthe, so all credit to the lads.
“It was all about battling, determination and guts, making sure when that ball came into their box, we had to make sure people got on the end of it and we managed to do that.
“The crowd were brilliant, they stuck with us and they know we will keep fighting and keep going.”
