Chorley Ladies kept up their Northern Combination title challenge with a 3-1 win over rivals Stockport County.

The visitors started strongly and took an early lead after the Chorley defence failed to clear a free kick.

However, they were soon on level terms when Vicky Coope drilled home a long range effort which seemed to galvanise the Chorley team.

A sweeping move rounded off by Sam Cadwallader saw Chorley take the lead for for the first time.

And Olivia Millington made it 3-1 when she outpaced the Stockport defence and hit an unstoppable shot into the net.

Chorley remained in control in the second half but failed to add to the score despite creating a number of chances.

They now need to win their final two games and hope that title favourites Huddersfield slip up.
