FC United have slipped to second-bottom of the Unibond Premier League after a 1-0 home defeat to Buxton, writes SAM WILLIAMS.

The Rebels dominated for long periods of the game, but were undone in the 52nd minute when a mix-up allowed Buxton ace Gavin Knight to chip Sam Ashton from 20 yards.

"We didn't deserve to lose the game," said boss Karl Marginson.

"On another day, we would have scored three or four and gone away with the three points."

Phil Marsh, Simon Carden, and Tong all had good opportunities to equalise but Buxton stood firm.
