MATCH REPORT | Curzon Ashton 0-2 Chorley

Four games without a win for the Magpies and without a goal to their name in that time meant Matt Jansen rang the changes up front for this visit to Curzon Ashton.


Marcus Carver, Jason Walker and Dale Whitham were moved to the bench in place of Nick Haughton, Josh Wilson (who were both rested for Tuesday’s defeat to Harrogate Town) and Delilal Brewster, who made his first start for the club.


Early pressure from the hosts was well dealt with by the Chorley defence before a searching cross from a corner was gathered up by Cameron Mason in the Curzon goal.


But Chorley’s long awaited goal came in the 13th minute when Wilson jumped to meet Adam Blakeman’s corner to head past Mason for a deserved lead.


Chorley almost grabbed a second two minutes later but the free kick was turned over the bar and the assistant had his flag raised for offside anyway.


Curzon had their first real effort on the half hour when Joe Guest forced a good save from Matt Urwin after Nial Cummins had laid him off on the edge of the area.


The home side saw another effort go to waste nine minutes before the break when Jonathan Hunt headed over Sam Walker’s free kick.  Andy Teague almost headed into his own net as the half came to a close but the cross bar came to his rescue.


15 minutes into the second half Carver was brought on to replace Brewster and almost had an immediate impact – his first attempt sailed narrowly wide before a through ball from Haughton saw him go one-on-one with Mason but he shot straight at the keeper’s legs.


Chorley finally doubled their lead, and sealed all three points, on 76 minutes. A short throw-in from Matt Challoner to Haughton saw the midfielder dribble past three Curzon players and fire into the bottom corner for a 2-0 scoreline.


Chorley: Urwin, Challoner, Blakeman, Teague (C), Leather, Jordan, Haughton (Whitham 84), O’Keefe, Wilson (Walker 78), Brewster (Carver 61), Cottrell; Subs: Anson, Mooney.
