AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor insists the result will always be more important than the performance after his side’s 2-0 victory over Torquay United.

Danny Rowe’s brace lifted him to the top of the National League goalscoring charts whilst also getting the Coasters back to winning ways.

Challinor said: “It wasn’t a great performance but it was a brilliant result. It was important that we bounced back from last weekend’s result.

“We now have to back it up with another home game on Tuesday night.

“A more complete performance would have been pleasing but we’ll take not playing well and winning. The table looks a whole lot better for those three points.

“Rowey’s not particularly in great form as such, that’s just him all over. Regardless of him having a good game, bad game or an indifferent game, there’s always a more than even chance that he’ll get an opportunity and stick it away.

“The first goal put us ahead when we weren’t playing particularly well and the second is a great header that got us over the line.

“The clean sheet is another massive positive, I just wanted more fluency to our game. When we got playing we looked like a real threat but it didn’t happen enough.

“Ultimately three points is the main thing but we can play a whole lot better and hopefully we do on Tuesday.”
