Tranmere Rovers midfielder Harvey Gilmour believes that the change in formation allowed Rovers to get a grip on the match, which Rovers went on to win 1-0.
Gilmour was part of a tactical switch at half time in the 1-0 victory against the league leaders LincolnCity.
“You could tell we were struggling a bit because we were playing 4-4-2and they were just overpowering us. We stuck to it and got to half time when we changed to a 4-3-3,” Gilmour told the media.
“They just put balls into the box and credit to the back four and Scotty, who dealt with it very well,” he added.
The on loan Sheffield United midfielder was quick to praise his team mate and goal scorer James Norwood for his way of playing.
Norwood scored the only goal in an end to end match, slotting past goalkeeper Josh Vickers, after beating the offside trap.
“He just surprises me in every game. He can be quiet in a game and then comes to score the winner,” Gilmour said.
The 19-year old has had to wait for his chance this season and after playing for half an hour against MK Dons, Gilmour got another 45 minutes in the bank tonight.
“The Gaffer has a lot of belief in me and I waited for my chance which I got. I played half an hour last week and I keep improving, hopefully I’ll get my start sometime.
Ollie Banks and Luke McCullough were linking up with the nineteen year old and they are a massive help to the young midfielder
“They help me massively in training, even off the pitch, always giving me advice. It is great to be on the pitch with them, helping me throughout the game.
Gilmour is still learning the trade and learning from Steve McNulty is exactly what the midfielder has done since joining from Sheffield United, he looks up to him like a “dad”.
“He is like a dad to us, he is literally the heart of the defence. He talks to everyone and is good to have at the back, we learn so much from him."
