Norwood: "People know what we're capable of"

10 September 2018

Tranmere Rovers striker James Norwood feels that it was a point gained rather than two dropped following Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Colchester United at Prenton Park.

Norwood, who was named as the EFL League Two Player Of The Month for August after scoring six goals in six games for Micky Mellon’s men, was on the scoresheet again as Rovers settled for a point.

The in-form striker opened the scoring for Tranmere on 42 minutes, profiting from a well-worked team move to notch his seventh of a prolific campaign to date.

Harry Pell levelled for the U’s on the hour, steering side-footing into the net after the ball dropped to him in the box.

However, despite Rovers having to settle for a point, Norwood believes that Tranmere should take the positives from the performance, which has extended their unbeaten run to four games in Sky Bet League Two.

“We are in good form at the minute, the important thing is that we are taking points.

“It is a bit disappointing for Scotty (Davies) today. He has been outstanding for us since he came three years ago, but he’s man enough to put it behind him and he’ll be back to his solid self, next week.”

“It was a good move, Luke McCullough started it then Cole Stockton got involved and I was just lucky to be on the end of it and put it into the back of net.

“We are a good team, and when we pass the ball, my movement seems to be from behind and I’m getting on the end of them at the minute.

“It has been a tale of the season so far, we have been in a lot of winning positions and dropped probably a couple too many points than we should have done, it’s obviously new to everyone as teams are coming at you fitter and stronger.

“Nobody is beating us with good play at the minute, it is mistakes and we’ll cut those out, and when we cut them out we’ll hit great form and take a lot of three points.

“We’re the new kids on the block and Colchester came here happy to take a point, coming to Prenton Park, so people are wary of us and they know what we are capable of.”
