Chorley face FC United with no-show from away fans

 SECOND-placed Chorley aim to return to the top of the Evo-Stik League tomorrow and forget an off-field spat as they welcome FC United to Victory Park for a game set to be played out in front of a strange atmosphere.

A big crowd was expected for the clash but the Magpies and the Manchester outfit have been involved in a war of words ahead of the game with Chorley making the match all-ticket after consultations with Lancashire Police.

FC United declined to take their allocation 520 tickets in protest against the decision and will have no supporters inside the stadium for what would have been one of the league’s largest crowds of the campaign.

The game is all-ticket for home fans as Garry Flitcroft’s Chorley go gunning for a return to the top spot they lost in midweek when Bradford Park Avenue beat Marine.
