AFC Fylde go into their home game on Sunday against Lowestoft top of the Vanarama Conference North table after a fantastic New Years Day victory away at Barrow.
Goals from Liam Tomsett and former Barrow loanee Danny Rowe saw The Coasters come out on top in a 2-1 away victory at Barrow yesterday and that also saw Fylde stretch their lead at the top of the league to three points, with a plus 14 goal swing in their favour too.
It was a great December for The Coasters as wins against Stalybridge Celtic, Gainsborough Trinity, Leamington, Brackley and Barrow on Boxing Day saw Fylde win all five of their games and the start to 2015 has been as good as the end of 2014 after that victory on New Years Day.
Next up for The Coasters is Lowestoft Town who travel to Kellamergh Park on Sunday. Lowestoft currently sit 13th in the league, having collected 28 points from their 24 games so far, winning seven and losing 10.
The Trawlor Boys haven’t been consistent this season in general in terms of results, but two wins and a draw in their last four league games is a steady improvement from the men from Suffolk.
However, The Coasters have only lost one of their last 19 league games and will go into this game full of confidence that they can maintain first position in the league table by defeating their east coastal opponents.
The previous game between these two sides this season finished 1-0 to Lowestoft back in August 2014, so Fylde will be looking to avenge their defeat.
Previous to that, Lowestoft’s only other encounter with the Warton based side was the 2008 FA Vase final at Wembley Stadium, where the former known Kirkham and Wesham defeated Lowestoft 2-1 thanks to a brace from Matt Walwyn in the final game as Kirkham and Wesham before the re-branding of the club as AFC Fylde .
The game in two days time is sure to be entertaining and you’re bound to get your fill of goals as The Coasters have scored 13 goals in their previous five before this game and Fylde are also the league’s top scorers, scoring one more goal than Solihull Moors.
Ticket prices are as follows;
Adults: £10. Concessions: £7. Armed Forces Personnel: FREE.Under 16’s: FREE.
We’d like to see as many fans down at Kellamergh Park to cheer on The Coasters in their quest to stay top of the Conference North league table!
