Match RecapNuneaton 0 Chorley 1

The Magpies made it three victories on the spin without conceding a goal as Nuneaton were handled expertly at Liberty Way. Showing superior experienced to their hosts, Jamie Vermiglio’s side were never in trouble once Marcus Carver’s late first half strike put the visitors ahead.

Team News

The hosts were forced into changing goalkeeper Louis Gray after his opening day red card at Ashton United. Ross Etheridge deputised. Theo Wharton also came in for Dior Angus.

The Magpies brought in Matt Urwin, Stephen Jordan & Louis Almond to replace Cameron Belford, Courtney Meppen-Walter & Josh Wilson.

Action

01′ YELLOW (Chorley): Scott Leather halted Harry Panayiotou’s route to goal. The resulting Courtney Richards’ free-kick sailed just over Matt Urwin’s bar.

34′ PENALTY SHOUT (Chorley): Elliot Newby fell under a challenge when he was about to shoot, but the ref waved it away.

42′ CHANCE (Nuneaton): Freestone’s cross from the left dropped to Harry Panayiotou, who couldn’t react quickly enough, and shanked his effort from close range behind for a goal kick.

43′ GOAL (Chorley): Straight up the other end and The Magpies took the lead. Teague’s left-footed centre somehow hit Marcus Carver before reaching the ‘keeper and rolled into the empty net.

63′ CHANCE (Chorley): Josh O’Keefe tested Etheridge’s concentration from a long way out.

74′ CHANCE (Chorley): Challoner’s cross caused mayhem in the Nuneaton box before Louis Almond’s shot was superb palmed away by Etheridge.

79′ YELLOW (Nuneaton): Michael Calveley tugged back Elliot Newby when he was away.

81′ YELLOW (Chorley): Andy Teague for afters with the ball out of play.

84′ YELLOW (Nuneaton): Enoch Andoh with a blatant dive trying to win a penalty. Looked guilty as he got to his feet.

That’s what he said

“It was always going to be difficult coming here. Nuneaton were a totally different package than our opening games. They are a tough team to break down. But we’re delighted to start the season with nine points” – Jamie Vermiglio
