After going nine games without a win, Worksop Town have now won two in the space of five days as they followed up last weekend's 1-0 win over Marine by beating FC United of Manchester 3-1 at Ilkeston last night.

The visitors were reduced to ten-men in the 25th minute when Rob Nugent was sent-off for an innocuous challenge on Ben Tomlinson five minutes after being booked for a foul on Danny Bacon.

From the resultant Alex Callary free-kick Bacon powerfully
headed the Tigers in front from close range.

Worksop doubled their advantage as Tomlinson raced away to win a challenge with United keeper Sam Ashton .

Worksop made it 3-0 when Tomlinson's inch perfect cross was converted by Bacon. The visitors reduced the arrears eight minutes from time when a cross from Carlos Roca was headed home by Tong.
