AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor was delighted that his side extended their unbeaten start to the season following yesterday’s 4-1 victory at Bradford Park Avenue.

The Coasters currently sit top of the pile in the National League North and despite his disappointment at conceding a sloppy goal, Challinor was pleased with a successful bank holiday weekend.

“I wasn’t overly happy with how we started the game because I wanted us to play high up the pitch from the off.

“We got ourselves two goals ahead and the game is dead but we switched off and let them back in. So from a position of the game being over at half-time, they are suddenly back in it and it was important we started the second half well.

“Thankfully we did that and got a slightly fortuitous third goal and then the fourth goal has killed it and we just had to see the game out, which we did very professionally.

“The result was more than justified – the only slight disappointment is that we have conceded a poor goal again but that’s just me being super critical because we played well overall.

“We have a lot of goals in the side, Rowey has got 30 goals for two seasons running now and he has started this season really well and I think there is still more to come from him.

“It’s been a great weekend for us – to take six points from the two games is massive for us. In that time we have got our first win at Mill Farm and kept our unbeaten run going so long may that continue.

“We will have a couple of days off now after a very busy weekend and make sure we are ready for games on Saturday and Tuesday.”
