AFC Fylde 2, Harrogate 1

It was a Red Letter Day for Fylde as they bolstered their promotion hopes in front of a record crowd at Mill Farm

They came from behind to win a game watched by a record 1,935 to enhance their position at the head of Vanarama National League North

A measure of the way in which Fylde are progressing is the fact that only 115 of that impressive crowd figure were from Harrogate.

However, Fylde were hardly in a happy mood in the first half as they trailed 1-0 to a goal by Tom Platt.

But they staged a stirring fightback after the break.

Sam Finley got the first goal on 62 minutes - four minutes later James Hardy, just called up to the England C squad, clinched victory.
