Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week and didn’t have to suffer Tranmere’s goalless draw at Yeovil yesterday. To be fair, neither side did enough to secure all three points in their League Two clash at Huish Park. Yeovil arguably had the better of the few opportunities in the game as a flicked header from Alex Fisher in the first half was tipped over by Scott Davies. After the break, the Glovers went reasonably close again as a cross from Jake Gray turned into a shot and, with Davies stranded, Luke McCoulough expertly headed away from under his own bar.
Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week – which is more than we can say Tranmere have. Rovers fell to a 6-0 defeat at the hands of League One side Shrewsbury Town in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night. Micky Mellon made ten changes from the starting team that faced Morecambe at the weekend meaning we were starting with a much weakened team against a team who are two leagues higher than Tranmere.
Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week – Tranmere have had a fantastic week with two games and two wins. Tuesday night saw the Super White Army return to winning way after a superb second-half performance to clinch an impressive 1-0 victory over league leaders Lincoln. The visitors had dominated the first half but James Norwood – who was sent off in injury time – scored his eighth goal of the season on 62 minutes and Rovers were able to hold out for a gutsy win.
Hi everyone, it is nice to be back after our little break. I thought I would change the name of my column because I am not just covering Tranmere but any sports I like. The past couple of days I have been glued to Sky Sports watching the Ryder Cup Golf. It has been really exciting and Europe are doing really well and I have enjoyed booing every time USA plays at half-decent shot – which hasn’t been very often. Anyway, back to the Tranmere games during the past week.
Tranmere felt the rebound from Newport’s hammering last week with a hard-fought defeat at Prenton Park. Fraser Franks’ fifth-minute goal was enough for the Exiles to register a third successive away league win. It was also Franks who ensured Newport held on to the win as he got his body in the way of James Norwood’s thunderous effort in injury time. Newport remain third in League Two but open up a three-point gap to fourth; Tranmere drop a place to 14th.
An own goal and a late Paul Mullin strike ended Carlisle’s unbeaten home record in the league and helped Tranmere to post their first away win of the season with a 2-0 scoreline at Brunton Park. Carlisle had cause to rue a missed penalty by Jamie Devitt in the 75th minute as Rovers hit back, forcing a Tom Parkes own goal before making it safe with Mullin’s fine solo effort.
James Norwood did it again scoring his seventh goal in as many matches but unfortunately it was only enough for a point as Tranmere were held to a draw by Colchester at Prenton Park yesterday. Norwood drilled home three minutes before the break to give Rovers a half-time lead but a mistake by goalkeeper Scott Davies allowed Colchester to draw level through Harry Pell.
James Norwood is on fire so far this season scoring his sixth goal of the season as Tranmere earned drew at Northampton. Norwood’s strike arrived just after half-time and handed Rovers the lead, but it was cancelled out by Junior Morias’ first Cobblers goal as the spoils were shared. Connor Jennings lifted onto the roof of the net and then Sam Foley was denied by a goal-line clearance before spooning the follow-up effort over the crossbar in an entertaining first half.
Acouple of games on offer this week with Mansfield Town the visitors to Prenton Park on Tuesday night. So Mansfield’s unbeaten start to the League Two season continued after they were held to a goalless draw by Tranmere. Tyler Walker squandered the Stags’ best chance when he blazed wide on the counter attack with 10 minutes left to play. Otis Khan also missed a golden opportunity for the visitors, putting a free shot on goal weakly into the hands of Scott Davies.
Tranmere suffered their first defeat of the season yesterday as they were rescued by Joe Romanski. They fought back from two goals down to win 3-2 against 10-man Tranmere at the County Ground. Jonny Smith and James Norwood fired Rovers ahead after just 13 minutes, but Town responded through goals from Elijah Adebayo, Marc Richards and Romanski after Jay Harris’ sending-off.
