MATCH PREVIEW | Nuneaton v Chorley

The Magpies (9th, 44pts) head to Warwickshire on Saturday for their Vanarama National League North encounter with a galvanised Nuneaton Town (12th, 39pts), writes Alex Birch.

Sitting four points back of the playoffs with 12 games remainingMatt Jansen’s men remain locked in a battle to secure their third post-season berth in four years.

A tricky opponent awaits at Liberty Way, however, as five wins in six games have propelled ‘The Boro’ away from the drop zone, with Dino Maamria’s charges now firmly entrenched in mid-table.

Team news

Matt Jansen has a fully-fit squad to choose from, with Jake Cottrell back in contention after missing Saturday’s victory over Gainsborough through illness.

Quotes

“All games at this level are difficult, but I believe we can go the rest of the season unbeaten. We’re more than good enough to do that” – Matt Jansen speaking to Harry Lyons

Last meeting

The Magpies came from two down to salvage a draw under the lights in a pulsating game back in November. Josh Wilson and Matty Hughes were Chorley’s scorers, cancelling out earlier goals by Jordan Nicholson and Ashley Chambers, in front of 1,306 fans.

Magpie In The Spotlight ...

DEFENDER

Stephen joined the club following the expiry of his contract at League One side Fleetwood Town, where he was a regular during their successful battle against relegation from League One.

A former apprentice with Manchester City, he went on to play 64 times in total for The Sky Blues, 53 of those in the Premier League.

He has a loan spell at Cambridge United while on City’s books before moving on to add further Premier League experience (25 appearances) with a stint at Burnley prior to spells with Sheffield United, Huddersfield Town, Rochdale and Dunfermline Athletic before signing for Fleetwood Town in the summer of 2013.

He made 77 appearances with The Cod Army over three season, including 21 last season where he was a key figure in their battle against the drop.

Fleetwood manager Steven Pressley said releasing Jordan was one of the toughest decision he has made in his managerial career and Stephen turned down offers from other Football League clubs to join the Magpies.

FORMER CLUBS: Manchester City, Cambridge United (loan), Burnley, Sheffield United, Huddersfield Town, Rochdale, Dunfermline  Athletic, Fleetwood Town
