AFC Fylde 0, FC United Of Manchester 2

The Coasters forfeited valuable ground in the promotion race in Evo-Stik Northern Premier League to their close rivals, who lost their goalkeeper to injury in the second half.

Goals by Greg Daniels and Callum Byrne clinched it for the vistors in front of more than 700 fans, the biggest attendance of the season.

United won despite having an outfield player in goal in the second period.

The game was held up for the best part of a quarter of an hour when the referee was injured and a call for a replacement was finally heeded.
