Whitby Town 0 FC United 0


THE Rebels battled to a goalless draw against the UniBond League premier division's in-form team on the wind-blown Yorkshire coast.

The conditions ruined the game as a spectacle, and the only incident of any note was the sad sight of young FC striker Danny Williams - one of the goal heroes in the midweek win at Frickley - being stretchered off with an injury.

FC boss Karl Marginson tried to keep the same team which had defeated Frickley, but family commitments robbed him of midfielder Simon Carden, who was replaced by Dave Neville.

With Chris Baguley out for a week with a hamstring strain and his brother Jamie still a month away from a return, FC now face second-placed Ilkeston Town at Gigg Lane on Wednesday night
