has supported his players to bounce back from the heavy defeat and regain their form. 

“We are a group that’s very new to this level,”

Mellon told

DUTV. “It’s not an excuse, we are, and now it’s up to me to keep moving them forward, with hard work.

“You make the players aware of the things they need to do better at and then you work with them, not against them. You work with them and you encourage them to improve because they are in the process of trying to move forward.

“We will keep attacking it and trying to get better all the time.”
