A woeful performance from FC United saw them slip to a shock 2-1 defeat to Durham on Saturday.
Durham had previously lost all 28 of their league games this season but produced a spirited display to come from behind to gain an unlikely three points at Gigg Lane.
FC took the lead against the run of play after seven minutes when Carlos Roca headed home Jerome Wright’s cross.
However, the visitors deservedly drew level 15 minutes in when captain Andrew Stephenson found the net with a brilliant 45-yard lob that earned a round of applause from the home crowd.
Durham then took the lead just after half time through an Elliot Cutts penalty after Ludovic Quistin handled the ball in the area. The Rebels should have equalised soon after through a spot-kick of their own, but Ben Deegan’s powerful effort was tipped over the bar.
And despite their domination for the remainder of the game, the home side failed to break down a determined Durham side who held on to claim a well-earned win.
