FC United slumped to defeat at North Ferriby in the Unibond Premier League on Tuesday night.

The Rebels never recovered after falling behind in the first minute when North Ferriby captain Paul Foot rose unchallenged to head home from a corner.

The home side should have doubled their lead soon after but striker Alex Davidson blazed over with only Sam Ashton to beat.

Ben Deegan spurned FC’s best chance of the first half five minutes before the break as his effort was tipped over the bar.

FC were handed a golden opportunity to equalise just after half time as Phil Marsh was brought down in the area, but Carlos Roca hit the post with the penalty.

The below-par Rebels failed to create any other clear cut chances throughout the second half and were reduced to ten men in injury time after Dave Neville was sent off for a second bookable offence.
