Matt Jansen wants his Chorley side to embrace the togetherness and team spirit after a last gasp victory away at Worcester City.

Chorley looked all set to take a point from Aggborough after Daniel Nti equalised for Worcester in the 76th minute.

But super sub Lewis Guy was the Chorley hero as his 89th minute tap in at the back post sealed a valuable three points.

The Magpies are without a midweek fixture as they prepare themselves for a Bank Holiday double header.

On Saturday they welcome Harrogate Town before travelling to Stalybridge Celtic on Monday.

Boss Jansen said: “The lads kept going to the end and that’s what I am asking them to do all the time.

“We want togetherness, we want a great team spirit and I want a great dressing room.

“I want the lads to be together and go out onto the pitch and put in a performance.

“Sometimes you’ll have the odd one who isn’t playing well, but if they dig each other out and look after each other, then we’ll get more results than we don’t.

“Harrogate are an in-form team, they’ve spent a lot of money.

“But we will take the same attitude, if we cut out the minor issues then I’m sure we will be fine for Harrogate.”

Kick-off on Saturday at Victory Park is 3pm as is Monday’s trip to Stalybridge.

l Chorley FC Under-18s made it two wins on the spin, thrashing AFC Blackpool 7-2.

The young Magpies put in a first half to remember running in seven goals and conceding just one.

More than 70 fans turned out to show their support at Bishop Rawstorne, Croston.

Hot shot Jordan Darr was the star man scoring four goals.

Callum Darcy bagged a brace whilst there was another goal for Lewis Kelsall.

The victory built on last week’s impressive win over a young Chester FC side.
