Top of the table AFC Fylde host rock bottom Hyde this Saturday looking to stay top of the Conference North league table with a victory at Kellamergh Park.
The Coasters climbed back to the top of the table after a convincing 4-0 victory away at Worcester City on Tuesday night courtesy of goals from Danny Lloyd, Danny Rowe and a Josh Wilson brace.
A win for The Coasters in two days time will guarantee top spot for at least another week, although Barrow have a game in hand over Fylde which they play in April.
The Coasters go into this game on the back of three games unbeaten, all away from home. Tuesday night’s game was the second game in the space of 10 days in which The Coasters scored four goals to win a game away from home.
This will be the first league game in three weeks to be played at Kellamergh Park,and The Coasters will have to wait another two weeks before playing a home game after this Saturday.
Since the 1-1 draw between these two sides in February, Hyde have only lost one of their five league games, winning one and drawing three.
The Tigers have done well recently in the league and after the previous game between these two sides, they may fancy their chances despite being 11 points adrift at the bottom of the league table. The previous fixture between these two sides ended 1-1 at Ewen Fields in a bizarre game that saw The Coasters take the lead inside a minute before having two men sent off.
Whilst Hyde could be relegated in the near future if they don’t win the majority of their games, The Coasters are looking to also get out of this league, but at the other end of the table. Although Fylde’s destiny is not in their own hands anymore, the belief is still alive and kicking in the hope of automatic promotion and a league title.
Admittance to this game is just £10 for adults, £7 for concessions and FREE to all U16’s and Armed Forces Personnel.
The match will kick off at 3PM.
Your support has been exceptional so far this season and we’d love to see it continue on Saturday by coming along to support the lads once again.
SEE YOU THERE!
