AFC Fylde survive early scare against Dover

AFC Fylde moved into the play-off places after a comeback 3-1 victory over fellow top-seven rivals Dover at Mill Farm.
The hosts dominated a goalless first-half but Dover were the side to take the lead after 57 minutes when Azeez Adebayo found Mitch Pinnock free at the far post to tap in.
However, their advantage only lasted 12 minutes as Lewis Montrose slipped a pass through to Vanarama National League top goalscorer Danny Rowe to cut inside and rifle an effort into the bottom corner for his 19th strike of the campaign.
Serhat Tasdemir drilled in from 15 yards to put the Coasters in front for the first time in the match with 13 minutes remaining before James Hardy rounded off the scoring in stoppage-time by thumping in the rebound from Tasdemir's initial effort which hit a post.
