TOWN let a two goal lead slip to fall to defeat against promotion hopefuls FC United of Manchester in the UniBond Premier Division.

Simon Collins' men were keen to pick up three points against the Gigg Lane club after going three matches without success.

And they looked to be on their way when Aiden Savory gave the visitors the lead as early as the second minute before adding a second from the spot on the half hour mark.

But Town threw away their lead in emphatic style to allow the hosts to the three points from the clash.

Phil Marsh brought the hosts back into the game on 38 minutes before Town could hardly catch their breathe when Adam Tong added United's second just a minute later to send the teams in level.

The Ingfield club kept their hosts out on the resumption but Simon Carden bagged what turned out to be the winning goal on 66 minutes.

Town will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Ashton United on Saturday, kick-off 3pm.
