AFC Fylde vs Stalybridge Celtic

Saturday 31st October, 2015 (kick-off 3pm)

Kellamergh Park

Vanarama National League North

After a week of FA Cup excitement, focus returns to the league on Saturday as the Coasters take on Stalybridge Celtic at Kellamergh Park.

Both clubs progressed to the first round of the FA Cup, but will be keen not to let the lure of matches against League One clubs distract from this weekend’s fixture.

The Coasters go into this afternoon’s match looking to maintain their position at the top of the table, following a 2-1 win at Corby Town last time out in the league.  

Stalybridge have made a solid start to the season and head into the match in 10th place. They were beaten 2-0 away at AFC Telford in their last league outing, however that has been their only defeat in their last 12 games in all competitions.

The spoils were shared last season with both teams earning a 3-0 victory on their own turf.

Captain Brad Barnes will be hoping to be involved after recovering from a neck injury, whilst Josh Langley has trained all week and is not far off making a first team return.
