Ben Gordon says Tranmere can get result against Norwich

Tranmere loanee defender Ben Gordon says his side are more than capable of getting a positive result from their Good Friday fixture against Norwich.

The 19-year-old joined Tranmere last Thursday on a months loan from Chelsea.

"It's a big game and Norwich are doing well and are top of the league," Gordon told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"But with the ability of the players that I've seen in training, playing to their best, hopefully we'll be able to get something from the game."

The left back says he has noticed a difference dropping down the football pyramid, although he believes he will learn from his time at Tranmere.

"It's a bit different from Chelsea and it's my first loan spell," he continued. "It brings you down to earth really in this league and things maybe like this for me when I'm older.

"It's a good reality check. It's a learning experience and with Tranmere fighting out of the relegation zone, it's going to be a good experience and a good battle."

Despite being loaned to the Wirral side, Gordon still hopes he can impress the scouts and coaches back at his parent club.

"It is very difficult at Chelsea," he continued. "But hopefully I can get out on loan this season and next season as well.

"You never know really, if I can push on in League One, hopefully show Chelsea what I can do."
