CHORLEY FC boss Matt Jansen believes the club is building success at Victory Park.

The Magpies moved up to second in the Vanarama National League North after a 4-1 victory against fellow promotion rivals Gloucester City.

Jansen said: “Everybody was fantastic, the midfield, the back three, the wing backs were all great.

“Jason Walker’s movement was clever and you need that (clever players) and we have that.

“But more important than that, is the type of dressing room we have got, as they all want to pull together for each other and they are all friends.

“They are demanding stuff from each other and they are all mates.

“There is a great team spirit and that is what is building this success and you cannot buy that.

“We are just going to hopefully keep going on this wave and push on to be there or there abouts at the end of the season.”

Jansen insists Chorley were good value for their money.

He said: “We got ahead in first half, deservedly so, but they got back into it(the game).

“We had pressed and took the game to Gloucester and were always on the front foot and were clinical in front of goal.

“But the goal we conceded was the only disappointment as it could have been avoided.

“It was a great ball in but I thought we were a little bit deep and the keeper could have got it but it was a fantastic performance by all 11 players and the subs that came on.”

Jansen admits that the goal by Jake Cotterill was a wonder-strike.

He said: “It was one of those where you shout don’t shoot from there as they usually sail over the bar.

“It was a fantastic strike, he deserved it because his work-rate was phenomenal covers every blade of grass.

“We went ahead with one goal and then kept on pressing.

“We went 2-0 up and they nicked one back but we dominated for large parts of the game and deserved the win.”

One of the highlights was striker Alex Samizadeh taking his tally to two goals in as many matches.

Jansen said: “He is a goalscorer and is a little pocket rocket, impact player.

“He is brilliant and is so loveable, great character and is such a nice lad.

“He has been a great asset and hopefully we can have him for a few more weeks.”

On Saturday, the Magpies entertain Stafford Rangers at Victory Park in the Buildbase FA Trophy third qualifying round.

Jansen said: “It is a nice distraction because it is financially beneficial to the club.

“So it is always nice to get a home tie and we will do our research on them and approach it like every other game and try to go on a run in that.”
