A debut goal on his return to Chorley by Adam Roscoe and a wonder strike by Tom Ince sealed Chorley's 2-0 win at Lancaster City on Tuesday.
All the pre-match talk was all about our capture of city captain Andy Teague, but a gentlemen's agreement between the two clubs meant the central defender will have to wait a little longer to make his Magpies' debut.
Even though Chorley dominated possession for long periods it was the host how came closest to opening the scoring right from the kick-off.
Fortunately Lloyd Rigby, in for the injured Aaron Grundy, thwarted the attack.
John Cunliffe continued his recent fine form up front, linking play and creating openings for his teammates as well as being unlucky on a few occasions.
The opening goal was a scorcher of a volley from the corner of the 18-yard box.
Ince picked up the ball following a corner routine and hammered it first time across the keeper into the far top corner.
The second goal was smashed home by Roscoe from eight yards following a bit of ball juggling from the big striker.
It meant he has now scored on both his Chorley debuts.
The Magpies could have added to their tally, but in truth they were comfortable throughout the night without needed to move into top gear.
