Get behind us, urges Magpies skipper

Andy Teague believes the Victory Park crowd could be a decisive factor in tonight’s showdown against fellow high flyers North Ferriby.

The inspirational Chorley skipper knows it will be a tough call to see off the Humbersiders, but he hopes home advantage will prove enough for his side to extend their fine start to the Conference North campaign.

“North Ferriby lost on Saturday but we know they are a very good side,” said Teague.

“But the gaffer has targeted six points from the next two home games and the supporters can help us make the most of home advantage.

“We have had great crowds and great backing for the first three home games this season, and it would be great if they back us like that again.”

The 3-0 win at Tamworth on Saturday and the convincing manner of the victory has buoyed everyone at the club.

“And it has not gone unnoticed that fellow new boys AFC Fylde, who won 8-1 at Oxford City on Saturday, have also made a big impact since their elevation.

“The promoted sides have both started well and have shown they can compete at this level,” said Teague.

“We had some momentum from our promotion last term and we aim to continue that form as long as we can.”

Teague has been troubled by a knock in the build-up to the game but said he was confident he would start.

Colleagues Jake Cottrell and Dale Whitham have also picked up knocks and will be monitored in the build up to the game.

A reminder to supporters that Saturday’s league game at Worcester City will be played at Kidderminster Harriers’ Aggborough ground which Worcester currently share.
