AFC Fylde enter this fixture following a 2-2 National League drawn game against Halifax.
The only name on the scoresheet from AFC Fylde was Taelor O'Kane (26', 95'). Jack Hunter (62') and Rob Harker (78') scored for Halifax.
An interesting trait of more recent AFC Fylde games is the number of nil scores.
Taking their previous 6 clashes leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on "Both Teams to Score" would have lost. Having said that, it remains to be seen if such a trend might be sustained in this upcoming match.
Dorking Wanderers will go into this encounter following a 2-1 National League win with the downing of Boreham Wood in their previous match.
For Dorking Wanderers, the goals were scored by Alfie Rutherford (26') and Haydn Hollis (82'). Tom Whelan (73') scored for Boreham Wood.
Dorking Wanderers have attacked well leading up to this encounter, having scored 8 times in their last 6 matches. While their manager Marc White will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Dorking Wanderers can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same games.
Coming into this meeting, Dorking Wanderers are without a win away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.

AFC Fylde will most probably be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
Conversely, Dorking Wanderers could well struggle getting goals although we do think it’s probable that they will be pulling one back during this clash, too.
