Date: Saturday February 14th\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\nVenue: Victory Park, Chorley\r\nKick-off: 3pm\r\n\r\nGloucester City travel to Chorley for the very first time on Saturday hoping to continue their recent good form.\r\n\r\nThe 2-0 victory over Lowestoft Town lifted the Tigers further away from the relegation zone, but it has been a long wait after last Saturday’s derby game against Worcester City was postponed.\r\n\r\nIn that victory at Whaddon Road, Sahr Kabba was dismissed for an off the ball incident, with his three match ban starting this Saturday after a lightning start in a Tigers shirt.\r\n\r\nThe Magpies are enjoying a successful first season in the Vanarama Conference North and currently sit in fifth position, targeting promotion at the end of the season.\r\n\r\nThey are managed by former Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers midfielder Garry Flitcroft, and have former Premier League striker Matt Jansen as assistant manager.\r\n\r\nFormed in 1883, the same year as the Tigers, Chorley have spent much of their existence in the Lancashire Combination and the Northern Premier League.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers will be able to welcome back Nathan Modest from his recent suspension, Harry White is back from a knee injury and French striker Mo Diop is being lined up for a first start.\r\n\r\nThe club announced yesterday that Lewis Hall has extended his loan spell from Bristol City for an additional month and Ross Staley, a new signing from Yate Town, will be featuring at Victory Park.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch all of the action from Victory Park on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial) from 2.45pm tomorrow afternoon.\r\n\r\n Gloucester City’s media coverage is sponsored by Baylis Motors.
