Chorley whets appetite
JIM Gannon’s men return to Edgeley Park this weekend to play host to play-off chasing Chorley.
The Hatters have failed to beat them on home soil since dropping into the sixth tier of English football in 2013 – and the Gannon is looking forward to a “bumper tie” back in front of County’s home support.
And after an ugly point at Boston on Saturday, Gannon is relishing a more attractive prospect this time around.
“I’m delighted that the hard work and endeavour we showed at Boston paid off.
“I’d have been really disappointed with the nature of the defeat had it been to two long throws – we knew it was a threat as they’ve caught teams cold with it recently, and they’re a tough side to deal with.
“But it wasn’t a pretty game, and I’m really pleased that we kept ourselves in it.
“We’ve come to three tough places in Darlington, Nuneaton and now Boston and come out of them unbeaten – and now we’re in a position where the Chorley game on Saturday is a really exciting one.
“If we win then we jump above them into the play-offs, and so we’ll be hoping for a really good game of football in front of a bumper crowd, and the chance to get ourselves right into the mix heading into the usual busy Christmas period.”
