Chorley boss Garry Flitcroft described this week’s home games against Witton Albion and Droylsden as vital, as his side hunt Evo-Stik League

Premier Division glory.

The Magpies will be looking for maximum points at Victory Park as they take on Witton Albion tonight, Tuesday, and basement side Droylsden this Saturday.

Flitcroft said: “They really are massive games, especially the Witton game as they are fighting for every point at the bottom of the table.

“But you expect to win your home games, especially with the form we have at home.”

Flitcroft set a target for his team before the 3-2 success at Ilkeston on Saturday.

And with the first box ticked, he hopes the other two will have followed come Saturday evening.

He added: “We know the situation we are in and that we need to keep winning.

“We need these two wins and I said we wanted three before the Ilkeston game.”
