Rebels in the dark

Source: Manchester Evening News

FC UNITED were left sweating over the availability of prolific marksman Stuart Rudd for Saturday's big FA Cup showdown at Fleetwood after the lights went out on their UniBond first division north clash at Clitheroe.

The game was abandoned after 58 minutes due to floodlight failure with the teams level at 1-1.

Rudd, who was serving out a three-match ban, had seen his strike partner Rory Patterson fire the rebel Reds into a 38th minute lead, only for Craig Sargeson to equalise on the stroke of half time.
