FC UNITED were left with just a single point from their opening two UniBond premier division games after sinking 2-1 at Cammell Laird.

Kyle Wilson gave the newly-promoted Rebels a 20th minute lead when he turned sharply and fired home from the edge of the box.

But Neil Black quickly equalised and was again on target in the 37th minute to send Karl Marginson’s men crashing to defeat.

FC pressed hard for an equaliser after the break but were made to suffer when they had strong claims for a penalty waved aside after Dave Chadwick appeared to have been impeded inside the six-yard box.
