CHORLEY secured a dominant 3-0 win against Scarborough Athletic side on Saturday afternoon, three goals for the Magpies enough to seal a big win for Andy Preece's side to extend the Magpies' winning run at home to seven straight home wins in the Vanarama National League North.

The Magpies started the game well, but it looked all but set to be goalless at half-time only for JACK HAZLEHURST to pull out an absolute stunner in the first minute of stoppage time, driving towards goal before placing a wicked shot perfectly into the top corner past Ryan Whitley who stood no chance.

Andy Preece's side continued to push on after the restart and one goal quickly became two before the hour mark, MIKE CALVELEY tapping home his ninth goal of the season after a headed flick on from Jack Sampson inside the six-yard box.

The momentum continued to swing in Chorley's favour after scoring their second, Sampson heading one barely an inch wide of the post before ex-Scarborough man, Kieran Glynn saw his curling effort well-saved by Whitley.

Scarborough had one big opportunity and even that was cleared off the line brilliantly by Adam Henley, Harry Green firing off a powerful effort through a group of bodies only to be denied by the former.

Chorley then sealed the win with five minutes to go, CARLTON UBAEZUONU taking down the ball brilliantly with his back to goal before spinning his man and firing a shot past Whitley to add the Magpies' third of the afternoon.
