FC United ended their five-game winless streak in style with a convincing victory at Ossett Town on Tuesday night.

Carlos Roca and Kyle Wilson struck twice each as the Rebels bounced back from FA Cup disappointment to secure their first league win since August 30.

Karl Marginson shared a goalless draw with Worksop at Gigg Lane on Saturday – three days after losing their midweek home replay 4-3 against Nantwich Town.

But United hit back at Ossett with a superb all-round team display.

Roca’s deflected effort – his first goal for the club since joining from Altrincham – handed the visitors a 10th-minute lead and the prolific Wilson doubled their advantage on 33 minutes with his 10th goal of the season.

Roca’s effort before half-time was ruled out for offside but he added his second, and FC’s third, with a 25-yard blockbuster on 83 minutes.

And Wilson completed the rout two minutes later when he struck a fourth from the penalty spot after the league’s top-scorer had been bundled over in the area to seal a first victory in six games – and third clean sheet in four games.

The Rebels have no game at the weekend following their FA Cup exit and return to action at home to Witton Albion on October 4.
