Teenager Oliver Byrne to make Chorley debut in FA Cup tie against Fleetwood



Posted Sunday, November 05, 2017 by PA

Teenager Oliver Byrne will start in goal for Chorley in their FA Cup tie against Fleetwood despite only joining on Thursday.

Boss Matt Jansen, the former Blackburn striker, will be without regular stopper Matt Urwin and Nick Haughton, who scored a hat-trick in the last round, as they are both on loan with them from the Cod Army.

Jansen has therefore acquired Byrne from Cardiff on a youth loan specifically to play in this tie.

Haughton's role in the team could be filled by former Rangers midfielder Ian Black, who signed on non-contract terms earlier this month.

Bobby Grant is unlikely to feature for Fleetwood having left Ewood Park on Tuesday on crutches.

The midfielder picked up a first-half knee injury in the Cod Army's 2-2 draw against Blackburn, with Fleetwood waiting to see how serious the issue is.

Forward Conor McAleny, who has been troubled by an ankle problem throughout the campaign, was missing from the squad in midweek through injury too.

Boss Uwe Rosler could consider changes and long-serving defender Nathan Pond may be among those coming in.
