James Norwood was pleased that his goal helped Tranmere Rovers pick up all three points from the local derby away at Chester FC.

The striker scored his 14th goal of the season from the penalty spot and said that he works well in high pressure moments and wasn’t phased by the thought of his kick to win Rovers the game.




He told Tranmere Player HD: “It was good work by Adam Mekki down the right to win us the penalty. We defended brilliantly throughout the game and kept a clean sheet so all I needed to do was tuck the penalty away.

“I imagine that I’m in a park taking a penalty against my mates, that takes your mind off it. It takes the pressure away from it and I know that if I hit it well, it’s going to go in.

“I thrive on pressure situations and long may it continue.”

Tranmere were backed by 1,110 of the Super White Army in two sides of the ground and Norwood gave them due praise.

He added: “Our fans were terrific. It was a sell-out from our end and it makes the game easier for us when we have 1100 fans right behind us away from home and they pushed us on to win the game.”
