FC UNITED’S hopes of knockout glory were shattered when they lost their FA Trophy third qualifying round tie against Boston United at Gigg Lane.

Karl Marginson’s Reds were hoping to take the next step on the Wembley trail by overcoming their managerless UniBond Premier League rivals but the dream was shattered as the visitors romped to a 3-0 lead.

Papis Deytte pulled a goal back for the Rebels but it proved no more than a consolation.
