Preview | AFC Fylde (h)

21 September 2018

MANarama National League – The Hive London – Saturday 22nd September 2018 – KO 15:00

The Bees will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Saturday after Leyton Orient prevented John Still’s men from recording their sixth victory on the bounce last weekend.

Josh Coulson opened the scoring for the O’s just after 10 minutes from close range before Wes Fonguck unleashed a stunning strike to level the scores going into the break. Barnet fell behind again on 68 minutes after James Dayton curled the ball round Mark Cousins from inside the area. Macauley Bonne made sure the three points were Orient’s 10 minutes later after latching on to his initial effort that cannoned back off the post.

Attentions now turn to tomorrow afternoon where the Bees host Fylde as they aim to pick themselves up from last weekend’s defeat.

Last Meeting:

Tomorrow’s encounter will also mark the first ever competitive meeting between the two sides.

Manager: Dave Challinor

This year will prove to be Dave Challinor’s seventh at the helm of the club after he was appointed manager in November 2011.

He has since gone on to help Fylde climb up the non-league pyramid and guide them to England’s fifth tier for the first time in their history.

In his first season in charge, Challinor lead a Fylde side to Evo-Stik North glory after winning the title against Salford City but suffered play-off heartbreak the campaign after, losing in the final. However, it was a much happier outcome the year after as Challinor’s side clinched Evo-Stik Premier promotion after going up through play-offs. In their first year in the National League North, Fylde finished second but lost to Guiseley in the play-off final before suffering a similar outcome the following season. Challinor’s side then clinched promotion to the National League after being crowned champions before achieving a play-off spot yet again but were beaten in the qualifying round. Last season saw the Fylde boss guide the club to their highest ever league position in 7th and also reach the FA Cup second round for the first time in the club’s history.

Before taking charge at his current side, the Chester-born manager was in the Colwyn Bay dug-out, taking up a player-manager role in May 2010. It was a debut season to remember as he helped the club to a second place finish in the Northern Premier League Premier Division before achieving promotion through the play-offs.

Away from management, the Fylde boss also played for Tranmere, Stockport, Bury and Colwyn Bay during a playing career that lasted 17 years.

One to Watch: Danny Rowe

Striker Danny Rowe joined Fylde in August 2014 from Lincoln City and has since gone on to become a goal machine at the club.

During his first campaign, where The Coasters suffered National League North play-off final disappointment, he bagged an impressive 35 goals in all competitions.

His prolific goal scoring form continued the season after, finding the net 31 times in all competitions before clinching the golden boot alongside Boston United’s Dayle Southwell.

In Fylde’s National League North title winning season, Rowe was named the division’s player of the season after bagging 47 league goals.

Last season was no different either as he finished the campaign having scored 24 goals.

With his incredible habit of finding the net, it’s no surprise that the front-man is joint top scorer so far this campaign with seven goals to his name.

However, Rowe has failed to score in his last three games but will be hoping to end that mini drought when he comes up against the Barnet defence tomorrow.

Recent Form:

Fylde currently sit fifth, occupying a play-off qualifying spot and go into tomorrow’s game off the back of a convincing 3-0 win over Aldershot. Ryan Croasdale and Serhat Tasdemir found the net just before the break to give the hosts a two-goal advantage going into half-time before Joe Cardle rounded off the win just past the hour mark.

In their last five games, The Coasters have picked up eight points, clinching two wins and two draws, suffering one defeat in the process. A goalless draw with table toppers Harrogate was followed up by a 3-1 away win over Ebbsfleet. However, they suffered their first loss of the season three days later, finding themselves on the receiving end of a 2-0 score-line at the hands of Salford. They quickly picked themselves up by sharing the points with Eastleigh after drawing 0-0 before their 3-0 victory over Aldershot last weekend.

Fylde have been solid in defence so far this campaign and having conceded only six times so far this season, only Wrexham have let in fewer goals.

As for their away form, The Coasters have only managed to win once on the road but still remain unbeaten having drawn the other four outings.

Report | Barnet FC 1-1 AFC Fylde

22 September 2018

Danielle Machin

The Bees bounced back from last weekend’s defeat by claiming a draw against AFC Fylde.

Shaq Coulthirst opened the scoring for Barnet on 20 minutes but it was short-lived as Daniel Philliskirk’s header five minutes later meant the points were shared at The Hive.

The visitors had the ball in the net with just eight minutes on the clock after Philliskirk beat Mark Cousins from close range but the linesman raised his flag for offside.

A sigh of relief from Barnet was nearly followed up by the perfect response when Coulthirst saw his shot-on-the-turn well saved by Jay Lynch.

The Bees’ number 10 was in the thick of it soon after when he played in Cheye Alexander on the right flank before the full-back laid off Jack Taylor who fired into the hands of the Fylde ‘keeper from the edge of the box.

Up the other end, Jim Kellermann tested Cousins at his near post but the former Dagenham shot-stopper did well to palm his effort out for a corner.

That chance came six minutes before Barnet broke the dead-lock. Coulthirst, who instigated the majority of the Bees’ early pressure, opened the scoring with a well-placed low shot from 20 yards out to give John Still’s men the lead.

However, the one-goal advantage only lasted five minutes as Fylde’s Philliskirk latched onto a cross, heading home from close range to level the scoring.

The Bees could have gone in front again just past the half-hour mark when a corner was cleared to the feet of Taylor who blasted low and hard into the hands of Lynch from the edge of the area.

A succession of chances fell Barnet’s way moments before the break with the first falling to David Tutonda whose effort whistled over the bar.

Charlee Adams fired low from distance but it was comfortable enough for Lynch before Wes Funguck’s attempt from inside the box was blocked on the line.

The first chance of the second period fell to the visitors when Danny Rowe pulled the ball back before forcing Cousins into a low save from close range on 56 minutes.

Fylde’s Kellermann became the first player to pick up a yellow for kicking the ball away before Zaine Francis-Angol joined him in the referee’s book five minutes later for a foul on Alexander.

A golden chance fell to The Coasters on 69 minutes when Serhat Tasdemir’s shot was well saved by Cousins before Joe Cardle pounced on the rebound but failed to convert from close range.

Rowe could have put Fylde in front with five minutes of normal time remaining but his left-footed effort from mid-way inside the Barnet box was well saved at the near post by Cousins.

The Coasters’ number nine continued to cause problems minutes later after his thunderbolt of a strike from the edge of the area cannoned out of danger off the outside of the post.

Despite Fylde’s chances in the second half, the Bees managed to hold on to claim a point.

Still’s side are back in action on Tuesday night when they welcome Havant & Waterlooville to The Hive.
