Fylde can pile more pain on woeful Woking

National League
Kick-offs 3pm Saturday

AFC Fylde have climbed from 19th to sixth in the National League in the last month and their stunning rise can continue with an away victory over Woking.

Given the congested nature of the fifth tier this season there are opportunities for almost any club who can put a run together.

And Fylde have done just that by collecting 19 points from the last 21 available.

They were 3-0 winners at home to Maidstone on Tuesday and look decent value to defeat 16th-placed Woking despite being a shade of odds-on.

Promotion had looked possible for Woking in the early stages of the season.

They were third in mid-October but have been on a dreadful run since late November, picking up three points from their last nine games.

The Cards' points tally (36) is still six more than at the same stage of last season but the pressure is increasing on manager Anthony Limbrick, who was appointed last summer.

Woking stopped the rot with a 1-1 draw at Gateshead on Tuesday but Limbrick admitted that it felt like a defeat after his team conceded the equaliser in the 80th minute.

The result extended Woking's winless run in all competitions to 13 and it will be difficult to turn the tide against a strong, confident Fylde side.

Eighth-placed Bromley are among Fylde's rivals for a playoff place and they can enhance their promotion hopes by beating Halifax at Hayes Lane.

The Ravens are the second highest scorers in the division with 50 goals and have won three of their last four league games.

They are growing in confidence and look solid favourites against the struggling Shaymen, who have won just two of their last 17 matches.
