FC United 0 Chorley 1
7:28am Monday 16th September 2013 in Chorley FC
CHORLEY took their fine league form in to the FA Cup to come out on top in a hard fought first qualifying round tie.
The Magpies, who are unbeaten and sit on top of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League always knew they were in for a tough test against a team that sit just three places and two points behind in the division.
In the end it was a solitary goal from Dale Whitham just past the hour mark that separated the sides.
It came seven minutes after the home side were reduced to 10 men when Tom Davies was dismissed for a very bad challenge on former FC United player Jake Cottrell.
Chorley took advantage of the extra player when the impressive Paul Jarvis burst in to the area and played the perfect ball for Whitham who poked the ball home in to an unguarded goal.
