League

The Magpies returned to winning ways to severily dent Skelmerdale’s hopes of automatic promotion.

With Dale Whitham and Jamie Vermiglio returning from injury, the Magpies controlled the midfield throughout the game and thoroughly deserved the three points.

Chorley went in front on four minutes when Steve Foster, through the defence, chipped the visiting keeper Tom Brocklehurst from the edge of the area, with the ball going in off the inside of the post.

Shortly afterwards Mark Houghton could have doubled the lead, but Brocklehurst closed down the former Skem player and made a fine blocking save.

Skem had two great chances when a Lloyd Rigby clearance fell straight to the attackers, but the keeper made a quick amends, saving one effort and forcing another onto the bar.

However, the lead was extended on 37 minutes.  A flowing midfield moved saw Tom Ince square the ball to Vermiglio on the edge of the area, and the midfielder netted at the second attempt, capping what was a fine display for Jamie. 

There were few clear chances in the second half for either keeper.  Rigby showing quick reflexes to make a smart save at close range with the only really bit a work for either stopper in the final four-five as Skem battled hard to get into the game while the Magpies did enough to ensure the points stayed in Chorley.
