Tranmere Talk’s Goal of the Month – January

By Peter Tscherewik

Tranmere Rovers played five games in January, and but for a hiccup on New Years Day away at AFC Fylde, the Super Whites have been in fine form.

Micky Mellon’s side are well-placed in 5th position in the Vanarama National League table, and have scored nine goals this month.

Here are four goals that we at Tranmere Talk think are the best of the bunch.

GOAL 1 – Ollie Banks vs AFC Fylde: 01/01/18

Banks provided one of very few positives on an afternoon where Tranmere were comfortably beaten 5-2 away at AFC Fylde. At 4-0 down the midfielder played a quick one-two from a throw in down the left flank, before curling the ball into the bottom corner from just inside the penalty area.

GOAL 2 – James Norwood vs Maidenhead United: 20/01/18

Tranmere’s number ten gave his side the best possible start against Maidenhead United, scoring inside the first four minutes of the match. Four passes were made between Rovers players down the left flank before Jake Kirby found the feet of Norwood, who finished powerfully into the bottom corner from 25-yards.

GOAL 3 – Jeff Hughes vs Maidenhead United: 20/01/18

The 32-year old delivered a match winning goal for the Super Whites with only his third touch of the match, having just come on as a substitute. Norwood had his cross half-cleared to Ollie Norburn who passed into Hughes, giving the Irishman room to strike the ball low and hard from range past Carl Pentney.

GOAL 4 – Andy Cook vs Wrexham: 27/01/18

The man with the magic hat proved to be the hero for Tranmere at the Racecourse Ground last saturday, as his goal helped Rovers secure a valuable away point. Adam Buxton’s free-kick on the stroke of half-time was met brilliant by what can only be described as a bullet header from Cooky, that left Chris Dunn stranded.
