Vanarama Conference North
Chorley v North Ferriby United
Tuesday 9th September; KO 7.45pm
Ferriby will be looking to avoid a third successive defeat when they travel to third-placed Chorley on Tuesday.
Chorley will prove difficult opponents. They are always a hard side to beat. Their only defeat so far has been a four-nil defeat to leaders Barrow.
Tuesday would certainly be a good time for Ferriby to hit form and Ferriby Manager Billy Heath will be looking for a good performance from his players following two generally poor displays in the last two games.
The defeat against Solihull on Saturday was a big disappointment but The Villagers could have few complaints. They were below par and Solihull deserved the win but Ferrriby can bemoan their lack of luck to some extent.
Nathan Jarman, in particular, is having wretched luck on the goal-scoring front. On Saturday he hit the inside of the post and had a goal-bound shot deflected over.
The Villagers were a goal down at half-time and started the second-half in control but Solihull had a massive stroke of luck that turned the game. A Ferriby pass ricocheted off the referee into the path of Solihull’s Omar Bogle and it left him with a clear run on goal to score.
Heath commented, “We were poor in the first half but we did much better in the second. It was frustrating because we came close to scoring on a number of occasions.”
NFU’s probable squad : Adam Nicklin, Antoni Pecora, Josh Wilde, Nathan Peat, Danny Hone Matt Wilson, Gregg Anderson, Mark Gray, Liam King, Jon D’Laryea, Russell Fry, Nathan Jarman, Tom Denton, Tom Corner, Jamie Yates, Dan Clayton, Louis Bruce
