AFC Fylde will be without suspended pair Harry Winter and Tom Eckersley for Saturday’s long trek to Norfolk to take on Kings Lynn.

The duo are banned for one match apiece after they picked up five bookings.

However, the Coasters will be boosted by the likely return to fitness of Winter.

He has been missing recently with a calf injury, but made a successful return to action earlier in the week when AFC Fylde drew with Chester in a behind-closed-doors friendly.

Winter was due to confirm his fitness for the fray with a reserve outing last night.

It is by some margin the Coasters’ longest away trip of the campaign, though their record on the road is exemplary, having lost just once in 12 games on their travels.
