James Craigen believes AFC Fylde’s hard-fought point against Harrogate Town on Bank Holiday Monday can act as a turning point for the Coasters.

Dave Challinor’s men stopped the rot with a goalless draw at Mill Farm, having previously suffered back-to-back 4-1 defeats.

Fylde were again far from their free-flowing best, Craigen and his team-mates having to do plenty of defending to earn their point.

But the summer signing believes the result can spur the team on to bigger and better things in the coming weeks.

Craigen said: “We’re disappointed not to get three points being at home but there are plenty of positives to take from it.

“We played well in the first half and were unlucky not to be ahead.

“And in the second half, although we didn’t create as much, we did well to dig in and get that clean sheet.”
