Blytha Spartans 1, AFC Fylde 3

AFC Fylde won this first qualifying round tie in the FA Cup, riding their luck at times and coming from behind to win.

The home side took an early lead thanks to Matthew Wade on five minutes, but Danny Lloyd levelled the contest, shooting on the turn into the bottom corner 10 minutes before the break.

The Coasters went in front for the first time on 52 minutes through Matty Blinkhorn’s well taken goal and they wrapped up the victory in stoppage time when substitute Jamie Rainford grabbed the third.

Blyth had a number of chances, but failed to take them.
