FRICKLEY Athletic couldn't build on their midweek victory at Worksop as in-form FC United of Manchester ran out comfortable winners in the UniBond Premier Division at the Tech5 Stadium.
The visitors, backed by a big following in South Elmsall, got off to the perfect start when Ben Deegan fired them in front with just a minute on the clock.

The Blues battled for a way back into the game but Kyle Wilson doubled the visitors' lead on 66 minutes to send Karl Marginson's men back to Lancashire with maximum points.

The defeat leaves Frickley 17th in the Premier Division and four points above the relegation zone after Ossett Town, who occupy the final relegation spot, saw their clash at Stocksbridge Park Steels postponed due to a frozen pitch.
