AFC Fylde 2-0 Ebbsfleet United
AFC Fylde picked up their promotion push with a commanding win over Ebbsfleet at Mill Farm.
In the opening stages Arthur Gnahoua threatened with a stinging shot that flew just over Nathan Ashmore's crossbar.
The Coasters' Ryan Croasdale did break the deadlock from close range though on the half-hour mark, turning in Andy Bond's low cross.
After the resumption, Nick Haughton came close to extending the lead with a deflected strike that hit the top of the crossbar.
Bond missed a sitter from two yards, but the home side did fully secure the three points with Danny Rowe's 16th goal of the season.
The striker picked up the pieces nicely from a blocked shot from Serhat Tasdemir.
