The Coasters made it 2 wins from 2 last Tuesday night with an impressive 1-3 away win at York City. This was a huge game for the Coasters as York, like Fylde was in the bottom half of the table and both teams needed the points to steer clear of the relegation zone.

Goals from Joe Westley, Jon Ustabasi and a screamer from Ashley Hunter gave Fylde all 3 points in a game where Fylde possibly could have had more goals.

The Coasters now sit in 15th position which is only 4 points above the relegation zone however Fylde have a better goal difference than most teams around them.

The Coasters are also taking points off teams in and around the bottom half which is absolutely crucial at this time in the season as it means dragging teams back into relegation battle whilst also propelling themselves up the table. 

With 7 goals scored in the last two games, attention now turns to league leaders Chesterfield who have only managed to gain 5 points from their previous 5 games and haven’t won at home since the 27th of January. Could the Coasters pile even more pressure onto the Spireites and cause a surprise this coming Saturday.

The Opposition

Chesterfield are quite comfortably running away with the league and with 10 games to go they remain 17 points clear of 2nd place Barnet. However, a recent wobble has put fear and pressure into Paul Cook’s side but surely they can’t lose their grip on 1st place.

Recent form has been uncharacteristic of Chesterfield who normally dominate games with large amounts of possession and clinical finishing backed up by a solid defence. However, in there last 5 games they’ve conceded 12 goals and only gained 5 points.

In those five games the Spireites have travelled down south 3 times to play opponents and come up with 3 points however the win wasn’t all that convincing despite beating nearest League rivals Barnet. However, with the Spireites surely returning to the EFL this season many will be glad as nobody has travelled to Chesterfield this season and come away with all 3 points in fact the last time to do so in a league match was York City in 2023.

With that record still intact and with a league title to win Chesterfield will be all guns blazing to rectify last Saturday’s performance. But with the Coasters also scoring plenty and in good form, this Saturday’s game could be end-to-end.

Classic Clash

The Classic clash this week comes from 2020 when a Nick Haughton strike earned the Coasters a deserved point on the road in a game where they should have managed to get all three points. An absolute masterclass from the Chesterfield keeper and poor finishing from the Coasters kept the score down however it was still a good point on the road.

Key Players

Armando Dobra – An absolute gem of a signing by Paul cook, the albanian can be seen as one of the most exciting players in the national league. A beautiful goal in the playoff final last year shows his quality and proves he should be playing a couple of leagues higher. An exciting player with a bit of flair to get fans off their seats.

Tom Naylor – Another player that once again should be playing levels above the national league. Joined in the summer from Wigan and hasn’t looked back since. A key player in the heart of midfield and is a starter most weeks for the Spireites. Not afraid to do the dirty work but is also decent when on the ball, could cause a problem for the Coasters midfield.

Will Grigg – Something of a coup for Chesterfield, Grigg links up with former boss Cook after being together at Wigan. The Northern Ireland international certainly knows where the goal is and could be the difference between getting over the line and not. A wealth of EFL experience, defenders will be wary when coming up against Grigg who completes a formidable attack which in reality could be playing at the top end of League 2.
