Chorley have already faced 50 games this season and now they face another quick turnaround with a trip to Harrogate on Sunday in their National League North play-off semi-final.

Matt Jansen’s side saw off Stockport on Wednesday night in their play-off eliminator at Edgeley Park. But they are raring to go again on the Yorkshire side’s artificial surface (kick-off 3pm).

He said: “We have hit form at the right time, we have had a stupid amount of games that we have had to battle through. “They have done that with strength.

“On Wednesday we went to a hostile environment, a big crowd behind them, it was always going to be difficult but I never doubted my men. They deserve it, not just for Wednesday but for the last 10 weeks.”
