Angry manager Dave Challinor promised his AFC Fylde players a hard-working week on the training ground in a bid to improve “all facets” of their game ahead of the holiday weekend double-header against Halifax and Harrogate.
It follows Saturday’s 4-1 home defeat to Woking, which was the Coasters’ first loss in five National League games this season but the display disappointed Challinor so much that he threatened changes unless lessons are taken on board quickly.
The Fylde boss said: “We’ll work our socks off to make sure next weekend we are better in all facets, not just on the ball but off it and in terms of all the individual stuff.
“If we aren’t better it falls within my remit to go and get players who are. I won’t suffer fools lightly and if things need to change they will.
“You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to work out who is responsible for those goals. Everyone is going to make mistakes but we have to do better.”
