TRANMERE striker Luke Norris could barely contain his relief after scoring the goal that saw Rovers beat Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground.

The 30-year-old has struggled with injuries this season restricting him to just a handful of appearances since his move from Stevenage.

But he is now hoping his winner against the Welsh side can kick start both his career at Prenton Park and a strong end to the season for Rovers.

He said: "I've had a really tough year so to score today in the circumstances was really nice.

"I came here off a promotion and I wanted the same so it's been tough but to finally get back to where I want to be is great and to do it today with what it means to the fans is a great feeling. 

"We've had a tough week with the games but Stockport were top of the league and we've beaten them, Mansfield came when they were top of the league and we beat them and Wrexham are up there for a reason and we had to dig deep and defend really well.

"They win a lot of games here and you can see why because they have a great squad and for us to come here and get a clean sheet is a really good sign."

Unsurprisingly, Norris sees the arrival of Nigel Adkins as manager as the turning point this season.

"We've got a great squad here and it's showing its qualities now," he added. "We've had up and down moments this season but since the gaffer has come in if you look at the table we would be right up there with Wrexham. 

 "We have a few games left and who knows? Let's go on a winning run and see where it takes us."
