Burrow brace bags the points

TWO goals from Jordan Burrow warned the Shrimps' Reserves an entertaining victory over Tranmere.
Burrow gave the Shrimps the lead from the penalty spot on 13 minutes after John Holmes had brought down Dan Parkinson in the area.
Burrow stepped up to send Nathan Jones the wrong way from the spot and the Shrimps went on to dominate the early stages of the game.
Parkinson had a golden chance to make it 2-0 just three minutes later when another storming run caused the Tranmere defence all sorts of problems but he fired over the onrushing keeper when he looked set to score.
The rest of the half saw the Shrimps, with Joe McGee back in the side after his recent loan spell with Workingon, playing some neat football alongside Andy Fleming.
The chances were few and far between however until the second half when Parkinson's header was cleared off the line by Holmes who made up for giving away the earlier penalty.
Oscar Durnin then fired the visitors level on 64 minutes after a shot from the left came back off the left hand post and the young striker, son of former Liverpool man John Durnin, slotted home the rebound.
The scores were only level for five minutes as Burrow headed the Shrimps in front for a second time after Joe Mwasile's header came back off the crossbar only for the young striker to head home the follow up. 
Tranmere went close to an equaliser when Chris Doley diverted a left wing cross against his own post but Stewart Drummond's side held on for a solid win.
