AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor cut a frustrated figure as his side dropped points at home against struggling Chester.

The Coasters looked set to secure a fourth win on the spin when Danny Rowe headed home, however Simon Grand’s costly error at the back handed the Blues a way back into the game.

Challinor said: “It doesn’t matter who you are playing against or where they are in the league – at the end of the day we haven’t won and that’s always disappointing.

“It was a frustrating evening and probably our worst performance of the season. We were lacklustre but we managed to get ourselves ahead. 

“If we had won the game 1-0 and put in the same performance then I still wouldn’t have been particularly happy but the result is the most important thing.

“We got onto the front foot and from that point they would have had to produced something decent to score. We didn’t make them do that, we put it on a plate for them.

“We knew if we could keep a clean sheet then we would probably win the game but we have made a shocking error. We gave them a goal that has ended up costing us two points.

“People make mistakes but we had to do the basics well and not take risks, especially when it was only 1-0, and unfortunately we didn’t do that.”
