Weary Rebels fire blanks

By Liam Chronnell

Bradford Park Avenue 0 FC United 0

JADED FC United earned a hard-fought point at UniBond Division One North promotion-rivals Bradford Park Avenue in their fourth game in six days.

The Rebels had been dreaming of a third successive title, but a fixture backlog has left them desperately clinging on to the final play-off spot, one point above sixth-placed Ossett Albion having played a game less.

Karl Marginson's tired-looking side rarely threatened in a game of few chances, Chris Baguley going closest to breaking the deadlock with just five minutes remaining.

FC return to action on Wednesday night when they travel to Harrogate RA - their fifth away game in a row.
