Dave Challinor was delighted with the Coasters’ comeback victory at Alfreton Town.

AFC Fylde came from a goal down to secure a vital victory with a fantastic second-half showing and Challinor impressed with his team.

“In the first half we didn’t move the ball quickly enough and we barely created a chance.

“We have got into a habit of relying on certain people to pull something out of the bag and create something out of nothing and that’s a bad habit to get into.

“We had a bit of a dig at them at half-time and they reacted fantastically in the second-half. We looked a completely different team after the break. We moved the ball better and played some very good football and looked a real threat.

“We had to defend some long throws and set pieces, but on the balance of the game – especially in the second half – we deserved to win.

“We could have probably had a couple more in the end, but overall it was very pleased.

“We brought James Hardy on at half-time because something needed to change and he gave us that fresh creativity that we had been lacking. I thought he did really well, got into some little pockets of space and grabbed himself a goal.”
