STUART Rudd helped FC get their title bid back on track with a spectacular late winner against Woodley Sports.

After only drawing with basement club Radcliffe Borough at the weekend, the Rebels were in danger of losing further ground on the leaders with the game locked at 1-1 with just three minutes left.

But substitute Rudd saved the visitors with a brilliant overhead kick to keep the pressure on top-of-the-table Skelmersdale, who are 11 points in front having played five games more than the Reds.

Second-bottom Woodley took a shock lead two minutes after the break, before Jamie Baguley levelled matters on 67 minutes to set up a grandstand finish.
