James Norwood inspired Tranmere to roar back from a two goal deficit to draw at Stevenage on their first game back in League Two. Stevenage took the lead when defender James Ball punished Rovers for failing to clear their lines as he fired home from just inside the box. Joel Byrom, in his second spell as a Stevenage player following his return to Broadhall Way in June, bent the ball past Scott Davies to make it 2-0.

Tranmere were now in trouble. However, all was not lost. Tranmere were not about to go down with a whimper, with play-off hero James Norwood slotting in to make it 2-1 just before half-time.

After the break, Rovers were level through Norwood’s second of the match, the forward converting after Ritchie Sutton nodded down a free-kick.

Stevenage were reduced to 10 men as full-back Johnny Hunt picked up a second booking for chopping down Ben Tollitt.

The game ended two-a-piece with Tranmere happy to get their first points on the board.

Well done, guys!

Next game is against Cheltenham Town at Prenton Park next Saturday.

  1. It’s a shame you have to pay to even listen to Tranmere on the radio now. I know it makes money for the club but many people felt excluded yesterday!

  2. Always look on the positive side . James Norwood has now scored two more goals in League Two than Messi and Ronaldo put together ! And he’s only played one game .
