For the second time in 10 days County and Fylde couldn’t be separated as they recorded the second 0-0 draw between themselves this season. Both sides came into the game on the back of wins in the FA Trophy that sat in the middle of the two league meetings and like at Kellamergh Park 10 days ago, neither side could break each other down as they fought out a goalless draw.
Fylde showed the early promise and started brightly, and despite being a threat they didn’t test Danny Hurst with a few long range efforts. County then grew into the game and Scott Spencer showed how dangerous he can be as he twice threatened the Fylde goal as well as earning himself a yellow card for simulation after a harmless tackle in the box by the Fylde defender.
With the game goalless at the break, neither side made any changes for the start of the second half as both teams searched for a goal to break the deadlock. Chances were few and far between as both teams fought a hard midfield battle. Danny Rowe came the closest for Fylde and Spencer and Owens both went close for County.
In the end the spoils were shared in what was a hard fought match and a draw the deserved result.
