Hartlepool United 2-2 AFC Fylde
Ryan Croasdale scored twice as AFC Fylde came from two goals down to maintain their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-2 draw at Hartlepool.
Pools got off to the perfect start, with Gime Toure's stunning curling finish into the top corner giving them a third-minute lead.
Nick Haughton fired a shot inches over the crossbar and Danny Philliskirk headed wide as Fylde settled.
A cross-shot from Haughton clipped a post, while Niko Muir, who scored Pools' winner at Maidenhead on Saturday, crashed a shot against a post just before the break.
Fylde started the second half well but it was Hartlepool who doubled their lead just before the hour with another superb curling effort from former Coasters forward Toure.
The visitors pulled a goal back with 10 minutes remaining as Croasdale turned the ball home from close range and levelled from their next attack when Croasdale looped in a header.
