Tranmere Talk’s Goal of the Month – February

By Josh Roberts

The month of February was one of ups and downs for Tranmere Rovers, dropping points against Leyton Orient away and a disappointing defeat at home to Macclesfield but picked up wins against Ebbsfleet, Bromley and Maidstone to currently sit in third in the table.

February also saw the Super White’s score a couple of fantastic goals as well as vital ones too, our list has a nice mixture of both.

Andy Cook vs Ebbfleet United 03/02/18

The first of two goals from the Ebbsfleet home game and it’s the goal Andy Cook thinks is his best of the season so far.

A long ball up from Rhys Taylor saw the ball reach Cook’s feet who showed strength and tenacity to hold off the United defender before unleashing a strike into the top corner.

James Norwood vs Ebbsfleet United 03/02/18

This goal is on the list purely because it James Norwood scoring a one-on-one, a goal that has eluded him for many a Tranmere match.

Again, another long ball up from Taylor was flicked on by Cook and Norwood raced away, keeping his composure to slot home past the ‘keeper.

A night to forget in terms of result but buried in the middle of a poor Tranmere performance is a great goal from top scorer Cook.

A hopefully ball forward by Adam Buxton was not given up on by Norwood who took the ball under control before looking up and picking out his strike partner to head in with a lovely weighted cross.

Not a conventional choice for a goal of the month list, but Buxton’s penalty is a worth inclusion indeed.

Tasked with taking the penalty in the 90th minute to complete a quick fire come back for Tranmere to secure all three points, Buxton stepped up and expertly dispatched the penalty into the bottom left corner giving the goalkeeper no chance.
