Chorley 1-1 Stocksbridge Park Steels

Saturday Devember 15th, 3pm

THE Magpies ended their five game losing run, but should have been celebrating a win rather than wandering how they allowed ten-man Stocksbridge to snatch a point.

Despite the first half being goalless Chorley were well on top with Xavier Parisi in the visitors goal the busier keeper.

The second half was only six minutes old when Dale Whitham got on the end of a flowing Chorley move to side foot the Magpies in front and to hinder Stocksbridge’s chances in the remainer of the game Will Senior was dismissed for desent before the game restarted.

So will little under 40 minutes to play, a goal up, numerical advantage against second bottom of the league – easy?  Nope, this is Chorley FC after all!!!

As in the first half, Chorley had the lion’s share of possession in the second half, but other than Whitham’s strike it was another case of near misses and the woodwork rather than more Magpies goals!

Chorley were made to pay for not adding a second in the 79thminute.  Matt Jansen lost possession in his own half, springing a Stocksbridge attack.  Andy Russell’s mistimed and short clearance wrong footed the defence and landed at the feet of Danny South and the substitute slotted in the far corner with Jack Cudworth a spectator

In the final nine minutes Chorley pushed forward for a winning with Andy Teague going the closest with a cross bouncing off the crossbar.

Deep into injury time Stocksbridge’s Jeremy Mitchell and Jamie Vermiglio were both dismissed after a flare-up on the half way line.
