Esher 27, Fylde 24
A Luke Daniels penalty right at the death denied Fylde away to National League One high flyers Esher.
At one stage, Fylde led 24-10 thanks to tries by Chris Johnson, Stephen Briers, Oli Brennand and Steve McGinnis, but they couldn’t hold on.
Esher launched a major fightback during which Fylde were reduced to 14 men when Mark Rylance was yellow carded.
Two late tries by Esher and that last-gasp penalty meant Fylde missed out on a famous win.
