Second half goals from Joe Yoffe and Phil Marsh spared FC United’s blushes in an unconvincing 2-1 victory at rock-bottom Durham on Saturday.

A woeful first half display from FC saw them fail to create a single chance against a young Durham side who have lost every league game this season, conceding more than 100 goals in the process.

However, the Rebels upped the ante after the interval and were immediately rewarded when Joe Yoffe broke the deadlock five minutes in to the second period.

The visitors’ play improved after taking the lead, but they had to wait until the 76th minute to seal the win through a superb 25-yard effort from Phil Marsh.

Durham grabbed a late consolation goal from a free kick, but FC held on for their first win in six games.

Karl Marginson’s side are back in action at home to Ashton on Wednesday (7.45pm).
