AFC Fylde danger man Danny Lloyd is hoping to end a rollercoaster season with promotion as his side prepare to take on rivals Harrogate Town on Saturday.

Both clubs are aiming to cement their National League North play-off place in the penultimate match of the season and the last ever league game at Kellamergh Park.

Winger Lloyd knows as well as anyone how difficult the play-offs can be after last season’s heartbreak, but is keen to sign off from Kellamergh Park in style.

“I think it would be a great send off for Kellamergh Park,” said Lloyd. “It’s going to take a lot of hard work and graft to win the play-offs but I think it’s something that’s definitely achievable.

“It would be a great way to introduce football to Mill Farm. It’s a stadium that deserves Conference football and hopefully we can provide the fans with that next season.

“I’m really looking forward to the move in the summer. It’s a fantastic stadium with some amazing facilities and it is going to be one of the best grounds in the Conference, if not the best, if we go up and the best by a long way in the Conference North.

“I think for all the hard work that’s been put in over the last couple of years the fans deserve to see the club play sides like Grimsby, Lincoln, Wrexham and Tranmere and to have these big games played at a great stadium like Mill Farm.”

Fylde narrowly missed out on the league title last season and whilst Lloyd admits his side haven’t hit the heights of last term, he believes it has still been a successful campaign.

“It’s been an interesting season,” added Lloyd. “But I don’t think we’ve played quite as well compared to last season. We’ve had spells where we’ve been fantastic but only for 45 minutes or so. We’ve not had as many games where we’ve been consistently top draw.

“However, despite not being at our best, we’re still third in the league and virtually guaranteed to finish in the play-offs. We know the play-offs are going to be very difficult but we also know we’re capable of beating any side in this division and when we’re at our best not many teams can cope with us.

“From a personal point of view, I think I’ve probably played in a similar number of games to last season and even though I’ve not scored as many goals, when you consider the minutes I’ve played, I don’t think my record is too bad at all.”

The Coasters boast an abundance of attacking talent in wide areas, but Lloyd insists is happy to wait his turn for the good of the team.

“Last year we had myself, Richie Allen, Mike Barnes and Dion (Charles) and this year it’s myself, Dion, Matty Hughes and young James Hardy so it’s always been four players competing for two spots. Each one of us has had spells this season where we’ve played really well.

“Dion had a great start to the season where he scored a lot of goals and James has been playing well recently too. I’m always one to support my teammates and I’ll sit with them and tell them how good they’ve been even if it means they’re keeping me out of the team.”
