Double delight for Patterson

By Liam Chronnell

FC United 3 Clittheroe 0

A RORY Patterson double helped FC United keep the pressure on the UniBond Division One North leaders with a comfortable victory against struggling Clitheroe.

Simon Carden had put the Rebels - nine points behind Skelmersdale United but with four games in hand - in front in the first half at Gigg Lane.

Striker Patterson struck again after the restart and the Reds' top-scorer added his 29th of the season late on to wrap up the points and move Karl Marginson's side into the play-off places.
