A vintage performance from FC United saw them cruise to a 6-1 victory at Nantwich on Saturday.

Kyle Wilson scored a superb hat-trick as the Rebels produced their best display of the season to record their second Unibond Premier League win in a row.

FC opened the scoring after just five minutes when Wilson latched on to Adam Tong’s through ball and netted his first goal since returning to the club last month.

The home side drew level through striker Michael Lennon 10 minutes in but FC continued to dominate proceedings and deservedly re-took the lead in the 23rd minute when Wilson grabbed his second of the afternoon with a classy finish.

Simon Carden then increased FC’s lead on 37 minutes to make it 3-1 at the break and Ben Deegan added a fourth just after half time.

Ludovic Quistin was dismissed for a second bookable offence mid way through the second period but FC’s ten men were still too good for their hosts and Jerome Wright rounded off an excellent team move to make it 5-1 in the 72nd minute.

Wilson then completed his treble with an unerring left-footed finish 10 minutes from time to give the Rebels their biggest win of the campaign.
