FC United 2 Wakefield 1


FC UNITED bounced back from their double-quick FA Cup and Trophy exits with two stunning Chris Baguley free-kicks giving them a badly-needed 2-1 UniBond first division north win over visiting Wakefield.

Baguley struck on the hour from 25 yards to give the Rebel Reds the lead, then repeated the trick with 10 minutes left after the Yorkshiremen had rocked their hosts by drawing level.

But FC's victory, which takes them up to seventh, came at a price as skipper Dave Chadwick now faces a spell on the sidelines after being stretchered off.

UNIBOND premier and division one north leaders, Witton Albion and Curzon Ashton, were each held to draws, but Vodkat League pacesetters Salford City beat Winsford 3-1.
