James Norwood has netted two important goals to help Tranmere Rovers into next Sunday’s Promotion Final at Wembley Stadium.

After his goal at Aldershot on Wednesday, Norwood scored the final goal of the game to make it 2-2 on the day and 5-2 on aggregate.




He told www.tranmererovers.co.uk that the entire squad had put a lot of effort into getting the result and praised his team mates.

“We put a lot of hard work in the first leg and gave ourselves a great chance today, and then scored the first goal but it got a bit nervy at 2-1, I have to say.

“But we had enough character and leadership in the team to pull through that and scored late on to make the game safe.

“It’s full credit to all the lads. We have pushed from minute one to 180 in this tie, the lads have worked our socks off and they need to be praised for that.”

The striker also gave praise to the Super White Army who sang and cheered the lads on at Prenton Park.

An attendance of 10,241 witnessed the second leg and Norwood said they can play a big role in helping the team on the pitch.

“It’s unbelievable. We had more than 10,000 fans here today and it really makes a difference.

“When we were under the cosh, they started singing their songs and helped ease the pressure to be honest.

“They gave us that lift and we can get anything like that or more at Wembley then it gives us a really good chance.”
