FC United continued their recent run of good form with a comfortable 2-0 home victory over Worksop on Saturday.

A brace from Simon Carden made it three consecutive league wins for the Rebels, and Karl Marginson was happy with his side’s display.

“It was a good performance and we’re very pleased to get another win,” said the manager.

“We’re definitely heading in the right direction but we’ve got another tough game on Wednesday to prepare for now.”

Sam Ashton kept FC level with a superb penalty save from Adam Burley in the fourth minute, and the home side controlled the game from then on.

Despite their domination, it took the Rebels 42 minutes to break down a dogged Worksop defence when midfielder Carden opened the scoring from six yards.

And it was Carden who then sealed the win with his second of the afternoon in the 55th minute as he converted Jerome Wright’s superb cross.

FC’s next game is against Kendal at Gigg Lane on Wednesday (7.45pm).
