Salford City 0-2 Chorley 29/04/11

Friday April 29th

Third place in the league was secured with a confortable two-nil victory over Salford City on a bone hard, but perfectly flat playing surface.

The concrete like condition accounted for a short return to action for striker John Cunliffe, missing throughout April due to injury, as he was withdrawn after a little over 20 minutes to avoid any chance of a relapse.

In a quite first half the only thing of note was Jack Dorney’s 42nd minute header which opened the scoring. Not sure how much Jack knew about the ball to him as everyone expected Shelton Payne to shoot, and no doubt he did too, but his wayward strike was perfect for Jack and he nodded Chorley toward a home semi-final in the play-offs.

The second half was one way traffic, with Salford becoming more petulant as the game drew closer to a close, and ended the game with ten men following the dismissal of Josh Tinker for a second yellow.

With a slight breeze on the backs of the Magpies, it was Chorley that made all the running in the second period and it was only a matter of time before a second goal arrived, and it was Payne who netted with a curling ball beyond the keeper just after the hour mark.

Tom Walker, making a rare appearance as a substitute was unlucky not to score, as was Andy Teague, but with three points in the bag it’s back to The Chorley Group Victory Park for Monday’s Play-Off Semi-Final against Curzon Ashton.
