keeper Matt Urwin is in line for a recall as second-placed AFC Fylde attempt to make ground on runaway leaders Solihull Moors when they take on promotion rivals Nuneaton at Kellamergh Park on Saturday.

Uriwin missed last weekend’s 2-1 win over FC United with a groin injury, Ben Hinchliffe taking over between the posts.

Coasters’ manager Dave Challinor said: “Matt has responded really well to treatment – we are looking to have him back in the fold.”

Challinor has high hopes too of a return to the squad for Caspar Hughes, who hurt a thigh in the recent match with Corby.

In midweek, leaders Solihull Moors suffered a 2-1 defeat against FC United, meaning that the Midlanders’ lead is still nine points, though AFC Fylde have a match in hand on their rivals in the National League North.

Challinor said he did not regard the resultas a shock. He said: “I don’t think any results in this division surprise me –there are no ‘gimmies’ in this league.

“If you don’t perform to the required level in this league then you are liable to lose.

“We can say that Solihull Moors is a good result for ourselves but looking forward, we are only concentrating on what we do.”
