WE’RE back at home this Saturday at the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium to take on Peterborough Sports in the Vanarama National League North.

The Magpies came away from Scarbrough Athletic in midweek with a well-earned point after Carlton Ubaezuonu was on the scoresheet with his second league goal of the season.

"I thought it was a really good, open game, both teams wanted to win the game by being really positive - I think we had the better of the first-half and deserved to be ahead, they started the second-half reasonably well and got the goal but we responded really well, changed our system to go with two up top and we gave it a good go." - Andy Preece

Peterborough Sports come into this fixture as one of the in-form sides within the Vanarama National League North with 11 points from their last five games (three wins, two draws).

Ben Fowkes is the Turbiners' top-goalscorer so far (four), while Michael Gash's side hold only the 15th best away record in the division (two wins, two draws, four defeats)

Our last meeting with Peterborough Sports at home, last season ended in dramatic style as Jack Sampson smashed home a penalty in the first minute of injury time to earn the Magpies a 1-0 win back in April.
