Women's football: Classy Chorley coast past Rovers as they chase the Terriers

First published in Sport

Chorley started the day needing to beat Tranmere Rovers and then win their last match to have any chance of catching hot title favourites Huddersfield.

Chorley elected to play into a very strong wind which made it difficult for both sides to play any quality football but a cross from Vicky Coope was superbly headed into the corner of the net by Kathy Bonner to give Chorley a hard-earned half time lead.

With the wind now behind them Chorley began to take control of the game and it was no surprise when Olivia Millington`s left foot shot found the bottom corner to make it 2-0.

She then turned provider as her cross was met by Rachel Wood who gave the Tranmere keeper no chance. Shortly afterwards Sam Cadwallader hit a fourth to give Chorley, what turned out to be, a comfortable 4-0 win.
