AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor was delighted as his side came from a goal down to win 2-1 away at Maidenhead United.

Second-half goals from Lewis Montroe and Jack Muldoon sealed the points and Challinor was pleased with the reaction of his side in difficult circumstances.

Challinor said: “I’m absolutely delighted with the result. We had to overcome adversity at times and I don’t think we had the referee on our side because it was never a penalty. That poor decision on another day could have cost us. 

“I don’t ever have a go at referees because it is a tough job but incidents and decisions like that can cost people their jobs so they have to be right.

“We should have already been in front before they scored though. You will never see two goalmouth scrambles like that where the ball doesn’t end up in the net. 

“Their keeper has made an unbelievable save after Rowey has hit the bar and then the defender has cleared another off the line with his chest. God only knows how we didn’t score. 

“We could have been forgiven for feeling sorry for ourselves but we weathered the storm and played against the wind and slope in the first half.

“Second half we improved and thoroughly deserved the win. We had plenty of chances and scored two really good goals to boot. 

“Performances have been okay recently but results haven’t been going our way so to dig in and come away with three points a long way from home was massive.”
