Chorley stay on top

Evostik Premier League

Chorley 1 Buxton 0

STEVE Foster was the hero yet again for the Magpies as they maintained their 100-per-cent record this season.

The ace-marksman took his tally to five for the season with the winner on 72 minutes from the penalty spot.

However, it was not plain-sailing for Garry Flitcroft’s side as Matt Parry hit a shot just over Russell Saunders goal.

The hosts was spurred into action on 33 minutes with both Foster and Andy Russell going close.

Defender Andrew Teague went closest for the hosts after the interval when his drive from 15-yards was blocked off the line.

Foster was tripped in the box and the experienced forward dusted himself off to fire home his third successful spot-kick in as many games.

Chorley: Saunders, Williams, Ince, Teague, Russell, Whitham, Roscoe, Flitcroft, McEvilly (Whalley 60), Foster, Payne (Walker 65). Subs not used: Maden, Fairhurst, Howarth
