Prescot Cables edge FC United in seven-goal thriller: non-league round-up

Sep 10 2008 by David Bassett, Liverpool Echo

PRESCOT Cables remain at the foot of the UniBond Premier Division despite a thrilling 4-3 victory over FC United of Manchester at Valerie Park last night.

In front of a 700-plus crowd, their best home league gate in recent years, Cables went 2-0 ahead through Karl O’Donnell and Liam Kennedy.

Kyle Wilson pulled one back for FC United on 70 minutes, and although Eamon Price quickly restored Cables’ two-goal advantage, Wilson’s second goal of the night, and a Chris Baguley strike, put the visitors level.

But Karl Connolly grabbed Prescot’s winner seven minutes from the end.
