AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor has set his sights on maximum points from their last four games but knows such a haul could see them still miss out on the Conference North title.

The Coasters are at home to Solihull Moors on Saturday and go into the game three points behind leaders Barrow.

Challinor then takes his side to Bradford Park Avenue on Monday night, a game which was postponed last Saturday because of a waterlogged pitch.

A slip-up by Barrow in the next couple of weeks could let in Fylde but Challinor is just concentrating on what his own players do.

“We play Saturday and Monday, starting with a tough game against Solihull,” said the Kellamergh Park boss.

“The Bradford match means we have another chance to play before Barrow do on Tuesday night.

“We know we need four wins and if that isn’t enough for the title, then we will go into the play-offs in good form.”

In the Conference, there is a tough trip for Southport on Saturday. Paul Carden takes the Sandgrounders to second-placed Bristol Rovers, who are looking to regain their Football League status at the first time of asking.

Southport, who are almost safe from the drop, lost both of their Easter games to Altrincham and AFC Telford, after previously being unbeaten in six matches.
