Former AFC Fylde striker Richie Allen makes a timely return to action on Tuesday night against his old club.

At Kellamergh Park he comes back from suspension to take his place in the Nelson line-up for the Lancashire FA Challenge Trophy quarter-final against the hosts and holders.

Allen played a big part in the Coasters’ success story - he is the club’s record goal-scorer and figured in the side that won the FA Vase in 2008.

Allen has just completed a three-match ban after being sent off against Irlam.
