Chorley skipper Andy Holdsworth is confident going into the final three fixtures of the Northern Premier League


Chorley have had an indifferent season showing quality in the cup just falling short against Shrewsbury in the National Knockout.

But the Windsor Park outfit have struggled to replicate that form in the league.

But Holdsworth is pleased with the sides current form.

He said: “Hopefully we can continue the recent upturn in performance.

“We want to finish the season on a high so we are looking for the win this weekend.”

Chorley didn’t manage a single ball in the weekend’s trip to Lancaster as rain put pay to any play.

Holdsworth and his boys have an away trip to Blackpool aswell as two home ties against Netherfield and Fleetwood to play.

And the captain is targetting two wins out of the remaing fixtures.

“We have to set our targets high and I know we have the ability to win the games.

“We showed in stages in the league and in our cup performances we are a good all-round side.

“So if we can replicate that form against Netherfield, Blackpool and Fleetwood, then we should be able to pick up victories.

“Our recent performances have given us plenty of confidence and their is a good buzz at the club.”

Chorley have an almost full strength side to select from this Saturday, with the only unavailability being all-rounder Will Moulton, who is away for the weekend.

But Chorley can welcome back Kieran McCullagh, who was missing through work commitments.

And opening batsmen Andrew Griffiths, who missed out at the weekend due to a wedding, should also return.
