Rossendale 1 FC United 2

Source: M.E.N.

FC UNITED had striker Stuart Rudd to thank for their second successive victory as they won 2-1 away at Rossendale.

The big number nine scored one and won the penalty for the second as FC triumphed in the UniBond First Division North clash.

A bumper bank holiday crowd of 2,023 at Dark Lane saw Rudd crack in a 25-yard free-kick before the home side equalised before the break through Mark Drew.

But Rudd was impeded in the box with 10 minutes left and Nicky Platt put the penalty away to make it two wins from four games for United.
