Barrow vs Tranmere Rovers – Man of the Match

By Peter Tscherewik

Tranmere snatched a point at the death away to Barrow on Saturday, in what was a thrilling 1-1 draw at Holker Street.

After the final whistle we asked you to vote for your man of the match out of James Norwood, Rhys Taylor, Eddie Clarke and Ollie Norburn.

We can now reveal that your man of the match is none other than Norwood!

The speedy striker took up 39% of the overall result, after he scored the dramatic late equaliser for Micky Mellon’s side. Clarke came a close second with 35%, after putting in a hard-working shift at left-back.

Norwood made the difference for Tranmere on an afternoon where it often looked like they’d never break the deadlock, but his persistence over the course of the 90 minutes paid off with his 94th minute strike.

Credit has to be given to Barrow goalkeeper for keeping Norwood out on a number of separate occasions throughout the match, although he couldn’t keep out the the 27-year old’s poked effort at the back post.
