Jim Bentley was glad that AFC Fylde came away from the first round of the FA Cup without being one of the shock losers.

Fylde travelled to Nantwich Town and won 1-0 to earn a visit to Kingston-upon-Thames club Kingstonian of the Isthmian League in round two.

Bentley was grateful the Coasters weren’t a scalp and said: “Away from home in the FA Cup, the fever, the weather, all aspects. There will be upsets up and down the country in any round of the FA Cup.

“It’s important when you come away from home to stand up and be counted, so to come here against a very good side and keep a clean sheet was massive for us.”
