Things are not so good for Iain Swan’s Garstang who are still searching for their first win.

Ashley Rowley’s goal condemned them to a 1-0 defeat at Thornton Cleveleys on Saturday before the went down 4-2 at Fleetwood Hesketh on Tuesday night.

Matthew Poole and Leon Gierke both scored from the spot for the Riversiders to level the Fleetwood game up at 2-2 but John Paul McMullen and Guy Buckley made sure of victory for the hosts.
