Chorley 1-2 Yeovil Town

Rhys Murphy headed an 85th-minute winner as Yeovil beat Chorley in the National League.

Murphy nodded in emphatically as the final whistle closed in after a fantastic delivery from James Tilley.

Prior to that, it had looked as if Ntumba Massanka had earned Chorley a point when he replied to Matt Worthington's seventh-minute opener.

Massanka was in the right place to convert after a long throw fell to him in the box, with Worthington having earlier scored after fine set-up play from Murphy.

Jimmy Smith also hit the woodwork twice for Yeovil, who had a Tom Bradbury goal ruled out for offside.

Yeovil play again on Tuesday, with their abandoned FA Cup tie against Haringey to be replayed after the initial match was halted after allegations of racism in the crowd.
