FA Trophy: Tamworth 1 Chorley 1
5:41pm Saturday 11th January 2014 in Sport
CHORLEY will get another shot at FA Trophy glory after drawing with Skrill Premier outfit Tamworth at The Lamb this afternoon.
More than 500 travelling Magpies made the trip to the Midlands to cheer Garry Flitcroft's underdogs on and they started well, pushing Tamworth onto the back foot in the last-16 tie.
But it was 0-0 at the break as neither side could manage a breakthrough.
However, that changed on 52 minutes as Adam Mather put the Magpies ahead to send the visiting fans wild.
But former Everton youngster Nick Chadwick levelled matters seven minutes later as the game heated up.
James Dean and Darren Stephenson both went close for Chorley late on but they are already looking forward to Tuesday when a bumper crowd will turn out for the replay.
