Worksop Town saw their promotion dreams end in a 3-1 defeat in the play-off semi-finals at Fylde.

The Tigers went ahead on 17 minutes when Tom Burgin’s long throw was nodded down for Conor Higginson to score on the half volley.

The lead lasted just two minutes as Fylde’s Richie Allen fired low past Jon Stewart.

Tom Denton ten headed against the post from a corner on 63 minutes but against the run of play Fylde went 2-1 up when Allen rounded Stewart from a ball into the box for his second of the game. With Worksop pressing for an equaliser deep into stoppage time the home side broke to win a penalty which Allen converted to complete his hat-trick.
