Match Preview: Chorley (H)

Friday 19/02/2016

For the third time in a week we return home to Keys Park with Chorley set to visit us this Saturday.

Although the two previous home games have yielded just one point, the Pitmen have been unlucky not to gain more having being denied late on during Tuesday’s clash with North Ferriby United.

Keys Park hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Chorley with ourselves having completed three victories out of three in the matches that have taken place here.

Our first ever meeting in 2011 saw us record a 2-0 victory, which was followed up by a 3-1 triumph in 2013 as we edged towards promotion.

After a two year break hostilities were resumed last season when a Marvin Robinson double saw all three points going to the Pitmen.

Earlier this season Kennedy Digie came to the rescue to earn us a point in a 2-2 draw at Victory Park after Adam Thomas had headed home to open the scoring.

Meanwhile, manager Frank Sinclair  is looking for another good performance from his side as they look to put the disappointment of conceding in the 95th minute on Tuesday evening to one side.

He said:

“We brush that under the carpet and we have another massive game against Chorley on Saturday.

“They are the local side to me and I have watched them a number of times in the last couple of years, they always prove a threat to opposing sides.

“The games are coming thick and fast for us and we will have to recover as quickly as possible and put a team out that can give out that kind of performance again.”

Sinclair is set to be able to call on nearly all of his squad for the fixture with only striker Kyle Perry serving the last of a three game ban and midfielder Andy Todd still missing after breaking his arm over a month ago.
