Glossop North End go in hunt of a cup upset this weekend when they travel to Conference North high-fliers Chorley.

The two sides will meet in the FA Cup second qualifying round at Victory Park, with £4,500 up for grabs for the winners.

Chris Willcock’s side realise the size of the task, but they will be confident of their chances given their recent form.

The Hillmen warmed up nicely for the tie with a resounding 8-0 midweek victory at Stockport Sports.

Garry Flitcroft’s Chorley have impressed since winning the Evo-Stik Premier Division last term.

They have started this season in fine form, and are currently third in the table, after ten games.

If required, a replay will take place next Tuesday.
