From the kick off Chorley took full control over a struggling Stafford side passing the ball around well on what was a poor surface.
The midfield and forward line were causing allsorts of problems for there opposition with Chorley attacking down the wings.
It's was a breakdown in play deep in the Chorley half that the ball was fed to James Dean who swept the ball out wide to Josh Hine, finding himself in acres of space Hine charged down on the Stafford goal before trying to round the keeper only to be dragged down. The referee rightly pointed to the penalty spot and after dragging himself back to his feet Hine smashed the ball into the back of the net sending the keeper the wrong way.
As the half continued Sam Ashton's goal never looked in trouble as Chorley stayed on top creating more opportunities but unfortunately the 2nd goal just would not come.
As the second half started the ball was passed around in midfield and again James Dean spread the ball out wide, the ball was then passed out to Josh Hine who's cross to the back post was put away be the impressive Dean.
With Chorley continuing to press the Stafford side more attempts on goal came but the Stafford goalkeeper kept his team in the game with some fantastic saves.
Stafford then managed to open up the Chorley midfield and the ball made its way to Kinsella who hit a speculative shot that took a deflection off Kiel O'Brien and and left Sam Ashton wrong footed to pull a goal back. The pendulum the swung right back in Chorley's favour when from a set piece captain Andy Teague managed to edge the ball over the line dispite the best efforts of the Stafford defence to restore the 2 goal cushion.
It wasn't long until Darren Stephenson who had worked hard throughout the game was replaced by the returning Paul Jarvis who did not disappoint teasing the Stafford right back with some mazy runs. Adam Roscoe then made way for Dale Whitam who himself had missed the last 3 games through suspension.
Chorley pushed for a 4th goal that did not come again thanks to some excellent saves by the Stafford keeper.
As news of scores from around the league were coming through chants of "we are top of the league" and "we are going up" came from the Chorley faithfull that must of attended in the region of 200+.
