Made hard work of today’s game. First goal came from a set piece following the stupidest handball I’ve ever seen. Defended in numbers after our late winner. Brad Pearce is looking more impressive with every passing game following his graduation from the academy side. We’ve yet to play well but we’are in the playoffs

He's a serious c*** that keeper is. Looks like teams have had trouble with him before
No, he’s been racially abused by oppo fans before. I imagine your Kop end were solely innocent and he reacted angrily out of the blue.

Only had brief look at Red passion. .like suicide watch on there. I was in the opposite stand so saw it kick off but wasn't sure why. If any idiots were spouting any format of racist abuse they will be dealt with. ..no excuses for such behaviour.

Right yea lovely guy https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/7766776/ebbsfleet-goalkeeper-jumps-in-with-boreham-fans/ He was having 'you fat bastard' chanted at him, i didn't personally hear anything else, although obviously i haven't got supersonic hearing to pick everything up

any reaction to him can not be condoned at all, but he shouldn't spend so much time trying to wind fans up, he instigated it all. he should be a lot more professional for someone with a history of getting involved with things as well.

Expected a tough game against Fylde and it played out like that until a bizarre injury and 10 min break in play. Hope the lad is ok, stretchered off and left in an Ambulance.
They deserved the early lead but our response like it was in the week vs Sutton was spot on.
Both had our spells in the game today and at 2-2 Fylde had the momentum. They’d used all subs by the time the injury happened and we took full advantage of the extra man.
One of those freak moments.

Note to the handful of quality Fylde fans that we met today. Good bunch of lads who were up for a good laugh. Some of the funniest chants I’ve heard in ages.
“Are you still in the trophy?”
Made me laugh.

Are you excited for your 3 points on Tuesday night? We've never won a league game on a fake pitch.

I expect you’ll respond to today and it’ll be another tough game. Okoye went off injured so hopefully it’s not anything major. He’s been key to our recent run.

Always a good game between us at ours.

Think you're still unbeaten in our games at your place, wish I could make the trip down to see how we fare with an actual striker. I suppose he'll feature but won't start.

By all accounts there was a few of their subs and the keeper at it trying to wind up the fans. If you’re going to dish it out then you’ve gotta take it. Looks like he’s played the race card again, tool

It was stupid of the few fans that ran on the pitch, but they've been through a lot and had sod all to cheer about for a few years. I find it hard to slam them too much to be honest

Do you know for certain that he wasn’t racially abused? If so then I’d be careful throwing insults around like that, could come back to make you look very silly indeed.

Just an awful display. No idea why Barrow hasn't realised that we need a bit squad rotation, so the players don't become to fatigued. It just seems he has one plan and doesn't want to change it.

We've blown a great chance to grab the top spot and I doubt with our away form, we will get anything from Tuesday's game.

Leyton Orient's membership in particular is under threat. They'll be asked for their observations on what went on.
Despite today’s debacle might I remind m’learned Brother that Orient remain the only Brotherhood club standing between The Evil and League Two.

We had a number done on us today, we gave away a cheap early set play which they scored from and it really rattled our cage, 2-0 down and heads spinning before you know it and then it was attack v defence for the remainder of the game.

Salford literally parked the bus and sat back, sadly for us we struggle to break down mid table teams who do this to us, let alone the top sides. Third goal came from a debateable free kick - their only shot in the second half and only their third out of the whole game until that point.

We just kept passing from side to side, didn't put enough balls into the box as Salford defended for their lives. Josh Koroma missed a one v one right at the start of the second half which would've been a game changer.

The run of fixtures for us took its toll today of all days, today for us was one game too far in this current period, as we also lost Josh Coulson to a hamstring injury, we've been playing mainly the same team all season.

Hopefully we'll rest the majority of our squad next week in the trophy and look to push on with less of a fixture pile up.

Finally a special mention to the dopey official we had today, who had to be reminded by his 4th official that a player doesn't have to leave the field if a physio hasn't been on the pitch to attend to him if he goes down injured.

There's no excusing that of course, but I have to agree with the Chesterfield fans above unfortunately. Ashmore was time wasting from the moment we went ahead and was giving it a bit. It's what he does, but recently fans (and him himself) seem to be reacting. It's not going to end well.

Onto the game, it was a bit of a mad one. We were actually quite poor. Very clinical in the first half but I wouldn't say we were 3 goals better than them. Second half there we invited them onto us and they took advantage. I'm sure they'll stay up.

I actually thought the ref had an OK game. Could have sent one of their defenders off in the first half for a foul on the edge of the box when he was last man, but didn't do too much wrong for me. She lost a bit of control towards the end, but I think most refs at this level would have.

Players have to accept some responsibility for their own actions. If Nathan Ashmore sets out to antagonise home fans, which seems to be his urge, recalling our play-off semi-final with Ebbsfleet, then there is always the danger of provoking a reaction. That said the Chesterfield pitch-invaders behaviour is likely to cause trouble for their club and possible jail time for those assaulting Ashmore.

Orient and Wrecsam, wtf are you playing at :hb:

Game too far for us today, played virtually the same team all season innit. 5 games in two weeks I always feared would catch up with us against one of the better sides.

Can see it being an Orient v Wrexham in the playoff final at this rate.

Salford could win this if they actually bucked their ideas up against the so called weaker sides, they've come unstuck a few times this season, including against Braintree of all sides.

Anyone else's teams travel day before then train, stay over pre a match of circa 3 hours+ away?
Trying to work out whether Harrogate town are following most others at this level or does it seem to be another spend to come back and haunt the club when daddy and son move on?

For distant away games Dover usually travel by train from a London terminal, then a coach from the station to the ground, if its an evening away game up north, then travel by train on the day of the game overnight in a hotel returning to London next morning, very rarely stay overnight for an away game , There are 3 away game where we fly these being Gateshead Barrow and Torquay , we fly from Biggin Hill or Lydd airports , we used to fly from Mantson before it closed down,
more local games like Braintree and Woking we coach it and Central London games the players make there own way there

The keepers a grade A dick as are our fans who entered the pitch,it's been claimed on our msg board some who were stood at the front heard no racial abuse but proving one way or another isn't easy

I remember watching that match against you. He must have wasted about 20 minutes overall.

He definitely antagonises but nothing condones morons entering the pitch and confronting or attacking him.

Ashmore was physically assaulted while on the ground, but was asking for it? Are women allowed to wear short skirts in your world? Chesterfield should have points deducted for failing to control their fans.

Physically assaulted? Hardly. The more physical behaviour came from the Ebbsfleet players to be honest

As said above, running on the pitch like that is very dumb especiall from the 2 young guys that ran into the net area, but the keeper manufactured the situation by constantly goading the kop all game. Perhaps he should just concentrate on playing the game?
