Jim Bentley is still looking for the right balance from his AFC Fylde side after their first defeat since he became manager.
The Coasters were roughed up by a direct Solihull Moors side, who won 3-1 on Saturday, and Bentley spoke of the need to add physical strength to their game without compromising on technical ability.
The Fylde boss said: “We’ve got to get the balance right with regards to being strong and physical. Being an all-out passing team is all nice on the eye but you can’t defend those set-plays at key times. We’ve got to be more rounded as a group.
“When we do come away to some of the top sides, we have to stand up and be counted in those key moments in games, like the first 25 minutes on Saturday (when Moors scored all their goals).”
