Dave Challinor Hails The Perfect Day For Fylde

4 months ago By Tom Feaheny

A 6-0 win against the league leaders left AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor delighted with what he had seen.

The Coasters moved to within two points of the play-off places after a scintillating performance saw them gain a comprehensive victory, writes Tom Feaheny.

"I couldn't ask for anymore than that, it was a simply brilliant performance and result," Challinor said.

"It was important to back up the last few weeks, we've been playing well really since the end of November."

"We are on a run and we need to keep that going, we've faced the top side in the league at present and beaten them the way we have means I am delighted.

"We go 4-0 and at half-time we could have dropped the intensity but we would not let that happen, I'm more pleased with the second-half goals."

A win on Tuesday at home to Maidstone United could see them end the night sixth and Challinor knows the importance of it.

"We now look to Tuesday, three points and we are in the play-off places that is a real aim for us, right now the aim is 50 points, then we can reassess and move on."
