AFC Fylde scored in the 93rd minute on Tuesday to secure a third consecutive victory in the National League. The 1-0 win against Gateshead meant they are now unbeaten in their last nine league games and still boast the best defence in the division having conceded just seven goals in 18 games.

Tomorrow they welcome Leyton Orient to Mill Farm. The O’s currently sit in 3rd just two places above AFC Fylde.

Head to Head

Tomorrows match will be only the second meeting between the two sides. The first meeting came in September 2017 as AFC Fylde came away 2-1 winners in a memorable victory for The Coasters. Danny Rowe hit a spectacular winner on the day.


It was a different story in February as The O’s became only the third team to beat AFC Fylde at Mill Farm. It came courtesy of a 1-0 win with a penalty from prolific striker Macauley Bonne.
