Burscough 1 Tranmere Rovers Reserves 2
TWO late goals from Cole Stockton earned Tranmere a place in the Liverpool Senior Cup semi finals.
Rovers included Danny Holmes, Jason Mooney, Max Power, James Rowe, Abdulai Baggie and Akpo Sodje in the starting line-up but a goal from Jordan Williams gave the Linnets the lead five minutes before the interval in difficult conditions.
The home side looked set to reach the last four but with six minutes remaining Stockton headed in from Max Power’s right-wing free-kick to level the scores.
The pair combined a minute later, with Power playing a one-two with Rowe before finding Stockton who fired in the winner.
Goalkeeper coach, Dave Timmins, said: “It was a good, professional performance. They showed the right attitude and work ethic and there were two well taken goals from Cole.
“The only disappointment was conceding just before half-time.”
TRANMERE RESERVES: Mooney, Holmes, Morris, Boland, Gumbs, Riley (Duggan), Power, Rowe, Baggie, Stockton, Sodje. Subs (unused): Ramsbottom, Newton, Jago, Smith.
