DISAPPOINTED Hucknall Town's floundering play-off hopes suffered another hefty blow at FC United of Manchester.
A bumper crowd of 2,016 turned out to see two sides who had both lost their last two games in the Premier Division of the Unibond League.

But it was FC United who got back to winning ways courtesy of a 2-0 win, sealed with a goal in each half.

United owed their home supporters a performance at Gigg Lane, the headquarters they share with Coca-Cola League Two outfit Bury.

Not least because they had lost their previous home game to Unibond whipping boys Durham City, who had not won a game all season and had shipped 137 goals in the process.

As for Town, they had gone down 2-1 against Marine and lost by a solitary goal against Guiseley in their previous matches -- the first two league defeats under the management of new boss Danny Bryant.

In this clash, The Yellows found themselves behind as early as the tenth minute as Carlos Rocca opened the scoring.

The points were sealed with just 12 minutes left on the clock as David Chadwick netted the second.

The result leaves Town in the bottom half of the table in 12th position and ten points off the play-off places.

They must now look to Tuesday March 24 when they have a chance to return to winning ways against relegation-threatened Ossett Town at Watnall Road.
