AFC Fylde 2-2 Yeovil Town

Courtney Duffus grabbed a late double as Yeovil battled back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 National League draw at AFC Fylde.

Yeovil keeper Stuart Nelson was called into action early on as he easily kept out Danny Rowe's effort, before the 38-year-old produced a superb stop to deny Mark Yeates from point-blank range.

Fylde took the lead after 35 minutes when Dan Bradley's cross cannoned against Glovers defender Gabriel Osho and flew into the net.

Yeovil piled on the pressure after the break. Chris Dagnall went close twice, Rhys Murphy had a volley tipped over the bar and substitute James Tilley fired over.

But Fylde hit on the counter to double their advantage on 72 minutes as Bradley rounded off a flowing move.

Yet the Glovers showed their mettle and roared back as Duffus scored two goals in as many minutes.

The forward first headed in from close range before capitalising on a defensive blunder to equalise 10 minutes from time.
