James Norwood was happy after scoring his 12th goal of the season for Tranmere in a 2-1 victory over Torquay United at Prenton Park.

After three matches without a goal, he was delighted to get himself back on the scoresheet and help the team to another victory.

He told Tranmere Player: “It’s been a couple of games since I scored so it was nice to see it hit the back of the net.”

Gary Taylor-Fletcher netted Rovers’ other goal with a 30-yard strike which flew into the top corner of the net.

Norwood says that you shouldn’t be surprised to see things like that from his fellow forward.

He said: “Gary has hit it really well. He knew if he took a bit off the shot that the wind would take it and he watched it sail into the top corner.

“He has undoubted quality. You see it when he has played that he’s a cut above, and you can see the standard that he’s been at, so you expect that sort of thing from him.”

It was a game played in very blustery conditions with hailstones also appearing at times throughout the 90 minutes.

Norwood said that it was difficult but felt that Tranmere were good value for the victory.

“It was a tough game for both teams with the wind. When we went 1-0 up, we were comfortable.

“Getting the second goal obviously helped us but then they pulled one back soon after. But I thought after that, we saw it out really well.”
