No matter what the outcome of last night's home match against Colwyn Bay, Chorley will have a lot to do this weekend when they travel to Cumbria to meet Kendal Town in a quick reversal of fixtures.

Tony Hesketh's Kendal side grabbed a draw in stoppage time at Victory Park last Tuesday - thanks to a goal by former Magpie Kenny Mayers.

This cancelled out a superb opener for the Magpies from Chris Thompson, who had to sit out Saturday's disappointing 1-0 home defeat by new boys Goole because of a hamstring problem.

Next Tuesday Chorley travel to Spennymoor again to take on Bishop Auckland in a First Division fixture before the FA Trophy first round qualifying tie at Guiseley on Saturday week. Player-manager Shaun Teale, was unavailable for a week but will be back in time for Tuesday's trip to Durham.

Assistant-manager Ray Stafford, who last night welcomed striker Peter Wright back after a one-match ban, admitted the Magpies missed Wright's incisiveness against Goole.

He said: "If we had scored early on I'm sure we would have won easily."

But he and Teale were delighted with new signing Tony Sullivan, who took the sponsors' man of the match award with a sparkling debut performance on the right flank.

Sullivan was one of a number of Lancaster City players who manager Phil Wilson had to let go in another round of budget cuts.

Full-back Ian Callaghan hopes to be back in training soon after injuring ligaments in a bad tackle during the Kendal game.

Defender Martin Clark has been out with calf problems and striker Franny Barry has been having treatment for a foot injury.
