CHORLEY FC manager Matt Jansen insists he will not be putting pressure on his players after they missed the chance to pick up their first win of the season against Kidderminster Harriers.

The Magpies have failed to convert their spot-kicks against in their opening two matches of the campaign with Jason Walker not hitting the back of the net against FC United of Manchester and then Adam Jarvis against the Harriers on Saturday which ended 0-0.

Instead ex-Blackburn Rovers star Jansen insists they are just focused on the Boston United game on Saturday.

"They were a strong side and they are still full-time and have a huge budget for this level so to get a point from it was good.

"I felt they were stronger in the first half but did not cause us too much problems or many clear-cut chances.

"We created a few opportunities in the second half and could have come away with all three points.

"We missed the penalty but you cannot dwell on it or it will create pressure on ourselves.

"You can practice them in training and score nine or 10 of them but it can be so different when you come to the match.

"Anybody who is happy to step up and miss or try to score that is fine.

"Who knows in our next match we could score one and then get a run of getting them."

That next tie in the Vanarama Conference North will be against Boston United at Victory Park and Jansen insists he will be hoping they can pick up a result.

He said: "Boston started slowly last season and it is the same this year.

"We beat them last year to go above them in the table and we are desperate to get a win under our belts.

"There are no easy games in this league and it is difficult because anyone can beat anyone.

"If we can stay unbeaten in our next few games then that would be good."

Jansen hopes to have skipper Andy Teague back after suspension on Saturday but he cannot fault his squad so far this season.

He said: "The all-round work-rate, communication and organisation of the players has been great.

"Against FC United of Manchester we made two mistakes but we managed to keep a clean sheet against Kidderminster.

"I have been trying to get the lads to work hard and not let themselves and the shirt down."

Games are coming thick and fast for Chorley but Jansen is enjoying the challenge.

He said: "I remember when I was in the Championship as you had games Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, early in the season.

"It can be good because you get the chance to put things right sooner rather than having to wait.

"Teaguey was suspended for Kidderminster but I had to leave Will Beesley out on Saturday.

"It is a good problem to have and I have told the players that even though they were not in the 11 that they are part of squad and they will be part of the 11 during the season."
