Skipper Andy Teague is hoping Chorley can bounce back from a dip in form at home to promotion rivals Worksop Town tomorrow.
he Magpies are still top of the NPL Premier Division table despite losing 1-0 to FC United in front of 2,171 fans at Victory Park on Tuesday night.
And Teague is expecting to return to winning ways against the third-placed Tigers.
He said: “I’m expecting a tough game.
“They are a free-scoring team but they also let a lot of goals in.
“It isn’t a six-pointer – there are still a lot of games to go. We’ve been on a bad run but hopefully we can put that right on Saturday.”
Teague was devastated by the manner in which the Magpies lost on Tuesday night but is certain they can end their current run of four games without a win.
He said: “It was disheartening losing to a last-minute goal but we are still top of the league with a game in hand over Skem.
“We need to get that winning mentality back.”
Chorley beat Worksop 4-1 away back in October and Teague is expecting a similar test.
He said: “Like I said, they score a lot but hopefully we can exploit the cracks in their defence – no doubt it will be an entertaining game.
“We are just concentrating on getting back on track.”
James Dean has missed the last few games but is expected to start against the Tigers, whilst Josh Hine is still recovering from a hernia.
Teague said: “Hopefully Deano will be back tomorrow and Josh started light training on Tuesday.
“He is still a few weeks away but we need him back for his goals, power and pace.”
