AFC Fylde 3-1 Harrogate Town

Jay Lynch
AFC Fylde goalkeeper Jay Lynch saved Jack Muldoon's first-half penalty

Two early goals helped AFC Fylde beat Harrogate in their National League play-off eliminator.

Ryan Croasdale prodded in from close range before Andy Bond made it 2-0 after just 15 minutes after a mistake from visiting goalkeeper James Belshaw.

Jack Muldoon could have reduced the arrears before the break but Jay Lynch saved his penalty.

The visitors got themselves back in it after the break through a Luke Burke own goal but could not find an equaliser and Dan Bradley settled the game in the final with a fine low strike.

Dave Challinor's side will now travel to Solihull in their play-off semi-final on Saturday.
