Here's an assessment of how Simon Weaver's men performed at Mill Farm. PICTURES: MATT KIRKHAM.

James Belshaw 8. Will be delighted with a second clean-sheet of the season. Denied Matty Kosylo one-on-one in the first half.
Ryan Fallowfield 8. ADVERTISER STAR MAN. Got the better of Fylde's talented attackers all afternoon and showed excellent fitness and athleticism to bomb forward and support attacks.
Will Smith 7. Like his fellow centre-half Connor Hall, Smith was certainly up for the physical challenge, dominating his opponents and nullifying a dangerous home side.
Connor Hall 8. Performed well up against one of the National Legaue's best strikers in Danny Rowe, particularly in the air, ensuring Town remained solid at the back.
Warren Burrell 7. Recovered from being forced off early on Saturday and almost produced a memorable winner when his overhead-kick came back off the cross-bar.
Josh Falkingham 7. Again demonstrated an excellent range of passing, spraying the ball around the park and anchoring the midfield from a deeper position.
Alex Bradley 7. Looks a real find in the centre of the park with his long-range shooting a particular threat. Replaced by Scott Brown in the 80th minute after taking a knock to the ankle.
Jack Emmett -7. Showed some good touches in midfield, helping Town boss the game late on and completed a second 90 minutes in the space of just 48 hours.
Brendan Kiernan 6. Was forced back into his own half in the first period but defended admirably and still managed to supply some good deliveries into the Fylde box.
Mark Beck 6. Caused problems with his flick-ons, but, as is too often the case, was fouled repeatedly with no repercussions. Replaced by Jon Stead in 62nd minute.
Jack Muldoon 7. Almost ended his search for a goal with a well-struck, low shot that cannoned back off a post. Put in an impressive shift, switching sides of the front three.
Jon Stead 7. (On for Beck, 62). His most encouraging appearance in a Town shirt. Looked a handful when brought on and would have won the game with an excellent finish if not for the intervention of the match officials.
Scott Brown 7. (On for Bradley, 80). Looked lively when introduced, getting forward to support the late Harrogate attacks.
