Gary Brabin was delighted with his Tranmere Rovers team after they picked up another victory, this time over Barrow at Prenton Park on Tuesday evening.

An Andy Cook header and James Norwood penalty gave Rovers the three points as brabinBrabin’s team start the season with a 100% record in their first two matches.

It was an eventful evening, particularly at kick-off as a late change was enforced when Liam Ridehalgh was withdrawn after the warm up with replacement Lee Vaughan only allowed onto the pitch after the kick-off.

Brabin explained: “We were in a little bit of disarray before a ball had been kicked as Liam had a knock in the warm up. We thought we had let the officials know in time but the referee started without us!

“Full credit to Vaughany (Lee Vaughan) who came in at the last minute and overcame the disappointment of not being included in the starting eleven and grabbed the opportunity with both hands.”

In therms of the game itself, the manager was pleased with the performance of his players and felt it was a thoroughly deserved result.

He added: “We started really well, were on the front foot and created chances so it was another good performance.

“Teams are going to come here and try to frustrate us and we need to keep our discipline and keep creating chances.

“At 1-0 you can never quite relax so it was nice at the end to get the penalty and the second goal which I think we deserved.
