FC United knocked their neighbours out of the FA Trophy with virtually the last kick of the game at Gigg Lane.

Adam Turner rose to head the winner from Simon Carden’s free kick in the third minute of injury time to break the resistance of Boro who had defended heroically all afternoon.

Griff Jones fluffed a golden opportunity to put the Stainton Park men ahead on 73 minutes when he was played in superbly by Richard Battersby, but his shot was blocked by the Rebels’ keeper Sam Ashton.

Manchester Cup holders Boro entertain Trafford tomorrow night in the same competition, kick off 7.45pm.
