AFC Fylde’s match winner hailed a perfect Bank Holiday weekend for the Coasters.

James Hardy scored the winning goal in the second half to confirm a 1-0 win over Barrow.

The BT Sport game came to life when he headed home when Danny Rowe’s shot was pushed into his path.

The young attacker showed great instinct to confirm Fylde’s second three points of the weekend after Dave Challinor’s team beat Hartlepool on Saturday.

Hardy said: “Six points is great for us, we have to work hard for this.

“Two wins in a short space of time is great for us, and it sees us climb the table now.

“All of a sudden we are in a really good position and hopefully we can build from it and in the next few weeks carry on moving up the league.

“We have had two clean sheets in a row now too so all in all it’s been a very good weekend.

“So far we have seen the league is stronger than the National League North but I don’t think we have anything to be frightened of.”
