Chorley upset depleted Derby in FA Cup

Non-league Chorley beat a decimated Derby County to reach the FA Cup fourth round for the first time.

A Covid-19 outbreak meant the Championship club were without their entire first-team squad, boss Wayne Rooney and most of their under-23 side.

Nine of their starting 11 were making senior debuts and they fell behind when Connor Hall headed in from close range.

Chorley wrapped up victory six minutes from time when Mike Calveley stretched to divert Elliot Newby’s cross home.
