Tranmere Rovers striker James Norwood is in a confident frame of mind heading into Saturday’s game at Eastleigh.

Tranmere travel to the Silverlake Stadium in seventh place in the National League with two fixtures remaining, though a win would see them jump above Eastleigh and potentially into fifth place.trfc

The striker, who reached the twenty goals for the season mark in last weekend’s match against Wrexham, told Tranmere Player: “There’s so much on the line we’ve got nothing to lose. We’ve got to go for two wins out of two and we’ll see whether other teams can deal with that.

“We’ve had a good training session today and we’re confident going into the game.

We’re going there to win. We know we have to move on [from the Wrexham game].

You come in on Monday and go through what went wrong and then you get it out of your head and look forward to the next game.

“It’s just about doing what we’ve been doing all season. A lot of people get nervous and change the way they play, and teams might sit behind the ball more, but it’s about maintaining the quality we’ve had for the last 43 games.

“We know we’ve been decent on the road, we just haven’t made that transition to home games. We’re confident going into every game and going into Saturday I think we’ve got a good shot.”
