The 21-year-old joined the Quakers on a short-term 28-day loan last week, with Nelson expected to go out on loan to a club higher up the footballing pyramid in January.

Nelson started at Chorley and scored twice at Victory Park but it wasn't enough to prevent Darlington slipping to a 3-2 defeat.

Both times he chipped the Chorley keeper with superb skill.

Despite the defeat, Darlington boss Tommy Wright was full of praise for Nelson, who won the supporters' man of the match award.

"You can see what Andrew Nelson is going to bring to us. I thought he was outstanding," reflected Wright.

"It’s a skill and it shows the lad’s confidence. He hasn’t played much football at all, that’s his second 90 minutes in three months.

"He’s looking sharp, we knew that on Thursday and he’s took that sharpness into the game."
