WATCH this super save which stopped Hucknall Town from a chance to draw level after they had trailed 3-0 to FC United of Manchester.
The Notts side looked well and truly out of last Saturday's Unibond League, Premier Division game at half time.

A stirring rally brought them two goals - and the chance to level or even win as the tide turned their way.

But Laurie Wilson's hard-hit spot-kick was sensationally saved by FC keeper Sam Ashton, much to the delight of 400 travelling Mancunians.

Retford United are currently top of the division with Stocksbridge Park Steels in fifth. Worksop Town are 15th.
