CHORLEY could secure their National League North play-off place with three points at Gloucester City tomorrow.

Victory for Matt Jansen's side, coupled with Salford City failing to win at Worcester and Stockport County dropping points at Bradford Park Avenue, would secure Chorley a place in the top five.

The Magpies, in fifth, are just two points off FC Halifax in third. Those two sides meet at Victory Park on the final day of the campaign and two wins would ensure Chorley at least fourth place in what is a complex end of season picture.

But for now Jansen is concentrating on the trip to 10th-placed Gloucester on Saturday aiming to build on two 1-0 wins over the Easter weekend.

"We are excited and full of confidence," said the Magpies boss. "We will dust ourselves down and rest injuries and hopefully it will be a healthy squad."

One of those injury concerns surrounds goalkeeper Richie Branagan but Jansen is hopeful the stopper, who picked up a knock in the win over Stalybridge last time out out, will be fit for the weekend.

Of his No.1 Jansen added: "He has had a knock and we will assess him and see how he is and we will decide from there."

And Jansen was pleased to see his side extend their unbeaten run to four games with two Easter weekend wins.

He added: "Six points from the two games over Easter is fantastic for us.

"People say our form is not great but in the last 11 games we have 21 points and no one else in the league has done that apart from Darlington.

"We have played a lot of difficult games as well so our form isn't bad."

The play-off semi-finals are scheduled for Wednesday, May 3 (7.45pm) and Sunday, May 7 (3pm) with the final on May 13 at the ground of the club who finished highest in the league.
