Farsley Celtic failed to make it back-to-back wins as they let slip a 2-1 lead at Victory Park, falling 4-3 to Chorley.

The Celts put in another excellent first-half performance, leading at the break, before failing to build on that in the second 45.

Chorley would take an early lead through Jack Sampson, but Russ Wilcox’s side responded superbly.

Frank Mulhern fired in a stunning free-kick from 25-yards out, before Carlton Ubaezuonu powered home a Luke Parkin cross for his first Farsley goal, and to give his side the lead.

Ubaezuonu would have a big opportunity to extend the Celts’ lead before the break, only to be denied when one-on-one by Chorley ‘keeper Matt Urwin.

And it would be a chance he would be left to rue.

Connor Hall levelled from the spot 10 minutes after the break, after he had been felled by Owen Mason, with Sampson then completing the turnaround with a stunning overhead kick.

Harvey Smith would add a fourth to put the game beyond Farsley, with Ubaezuonu’s last-minute second no more than a consolation.
