BAMBER BRIDGE 3, FC UNITED 0: FC United's Jekyll and Hyde season continued as they were comprehensively beaten.
The Rebels thumped the Preston club 5-0 in the President's Cup just over two weeks ago, but their UniBond League Division One North rivals claimed their revenge in emphatic fashion.
After six straight victories, Karl Marginson's team have now lost two of their last three games as Curzon Ashton stretched their lead at the top of the table six points.
Former England schoolboy international, Ryan Salmon, pounced on goalkeeper Sam Ashton's error to open the scoring on 14 minutes.
Striker Dave Eaton, who once partnered Wayne Rooney up front in the Everton reserves, added a fine second on 51 minutes and Salmon's header wrapped up the points just three minutes later.
