Chorley 0-2 Harrogate Town

Jack Muldoon struck his 10th goal of the season as Harrogate maintained their play-off challenge with a win at bottom club Chorley.

Muldoon gave Harrogate a half-time lead and former Huddersfield striker Jon Stead extended it midway through the second half to make it back-to-back wins for Simon Weaver's side.

Ex-Lincoln forward Muldoon, who scored twice in Harrogate's 4-1 win against Hartlepool on Boxing Day, latched on to Connor Hall's ball over the top and made no mistake in the 27th minute.

Chorley goalkeeper Matt Urwin pulled off an excellent save on the hour-mark to deny Will Smith but was helpless soon after when rounded by Stead, who neatly slid home the visitors' second.
