CARLOS Roca struck twice as the Rebels climbed three places to ninth in the UniBond Premier with victory over overhigh-flying Ilkeston in front of 1,550 at Gigg Lane.

Ace marksman Kyle Wilson gave them a 14th minute but Scott Garner equalised four minutes before the break after keeper Sam Ashton spilled Steve Istead's 25-yard shot.

But Roca restored FC's advantage in the 55th minute, volleying in Alex Skidmore's cross, before sealing their most impressive win of the season nine minutes from time.
