Chorley faced a possible banana skin against basement team Tyldsley as they rested a few players although captain Phil Callander was back from injury.

After a quiet start on a slippery surface the Chorley backs, led by stand off Martin Whitfield, started to ignite after about quarter of an hour.

Martin Whitfield sprinted in to score in the corner, then almost straight after the forwards won another scrum against the head to let the backs loose again and Steve Ashcroft finished magnificently.

Just before the break new boy Steve Pearson ran in at the corner and Martin Whitfield ran in his second try.

In the second period Chorley took there foot off the gas and played some sloppy rugby that led in Tyldsley for a try.

That led to a call too arms by captain Phil Callander and he soon almost scored himself.

Soon after, Steve Pearson ran in his second try, centre Ross Cottom ran under the posts and Martin Whitfield bagged his hat-trick, with Matt Bates adding the conversions.

Despite the referee keeping Chorley pinned back with some suspect decisions, they ran in comfortable winners to stay fourth in the table.

They have no match next week and there next two games are against promotion teams Thornton Cleveleys and Wigan.

Captain Phil Callander said: "It was a good solid performance again. We had a lot of ball and the backs were excellent today Steve Pearson had a cracker on his debut, and Martin Whitfield played very well."
