Fresh off the back of a fantastic result on Tuesday night, Chorley return to Victory Park today for another tough fixture with Hereford the visitors. The Bulls will consider their current eighteenth place to be a reflection on their poor start to the opening month of the season. With Paul Caddis taking over the helm at Edgar Street in the summer and bringing in a wealth of new players, an argument could have been made that the team needed time to bed in.
Results have picked up since mid-September and passage to the next round of the FA Cup was secured by defeating National League’s Rochdale to set up an away tie with Gillingham next weekend. The Bulls followed this result up with a creditable victory over Curzon Ashton 3-1, but defeat on Tuesday night by the same scoreline away at Alfreton Town may have stopped the Bulls in their tracks somewhat. They will be looking to make amends this afternoon.
