AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor reflects on a frustration evening at Nuneaton Town.

The Coasters led by a goal at half-time against 10-men but were held to a 1-1 by their fellow promotion hopefuls.

“There’s no question it’s two points dropped. I don’t really know where to start with the game. I think there were only two positives to come out of the match in my opinion – Rowey scoring another goal and Bohan Dixon’s performance.

“I thought he showed glimpses of real quality and potential. If we can get the right personnel around him then I’m sure he will be a very good player for us. He adds aspects to the game that we have definitely been missing this season. Aside from that, and obviously the point, I don’t think we can take anything else positive out of the game.

“We are in a difficult run of form at the moment and we were given a big opportunity tonight with the sending off so early in the game. We then go in front and we needed to finish them off.

“We are playing like a team that looks low on confidence. We are trying to see out games when we need to put teams to the sword.

“Once we gave them something to hold on to, much like we did against Alfreton at the weekend, then it became difficult and we started to get a little bit desperate.

“Our decision making in the final third has been a real concern of late and we are costing ourselves points because of it.”
