Chorley boss Matt Jansen is set to snap up a new striker from a Football League club later this week.
Jansen is set to bolster his attack as the Magpies are set to lose striker Marcus Carver after Saturday’s clash at Stockport.
Carver’s 93-day loan from League Two outfit Accrington Stanley ends this week and ex-Premier League star Jansen says one of his former clubs is set to supply him with a goalscorer on-loan to fill the void left by Carver - who has only netted once in his spell at Chorley - later this week.
He said: “We lose Marcus after Saturday’s game as his loan ends and we can’t get him back until January. So I have approached one of my old clubs and we should be able to get another striker on-loan.”
Chorley’s Adam Dodd has joined Bamber Bridge but Jansen says the technicalities of the deal still need to be ironed out.
Back on the pitch Jansen is looking forward to starting the Magpies defence of the Lancashire FA Challenge Trophy at lower league North West Counties Premier Division opposition Nelson tonight.
And he hopes Chorley can lift the trophy yet again.
He said: “I want to win it again, we all want a good cup run. We will go into this game like it is a normal league game. But I will be making a few changes to freshen things up.”
Chorley captain Andy Teague missed Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Brackley Town due to a swollen knee and Jansen said he is set to rest the skipper in preparation for Saturday’s big National League North clash at Stockport County.
Darren Stephenson - who scored Chorley’s winner on Saturday - bagged the only goal of the game in the Magpies victory over County back in September and Jansen is hoping to put a run together and get 10th-placed Chorley rising up the table. He said: “We got the result we deserved against Brackley. I’m looking to build on that by getting a good result tonight and on Saturday.”
