Chorley headed north as they continued in their quest for promotion against a Carnforth side high on confidence after recording their first win of the season the previous week.

Due to heavy wind and rain the early exchanges were between the two sets of forwards with Chorleys pack coming out on top which resulted in a Steve Pearson penalty giving Chorley a 3-0 lead.

It wasn’t long before Chorley went over for the first try of the game after a good break by Andy Kavanagh enabled Pearson to score under the sticks.

Chorley were dominating the game but a mixture of handling errors and poor decision making stopped them racking up more points, they did get another try before half time through Kavanagh.

The second half continued in the same fashion with Kavanagh grabbing his second of the game after quick thinking from stand off Gav Slater.

The experience of substitutes Tony Dodd and Steve Goodman helped the cause and it was Goodman who went over to finish off the scoring.

Man of the match and skipper Michael Jessiman said after the game: "It was a good defensive display today and we got the two points.

“We have got four games left and promotion is our aim."
