A lacklustre performance from FC United saw them lose 1-0 at Burscough on Saturday.

With both teams having little to play for, the home side shaded a typical end-of-season match to claim the three points. FC have now gone six games without a win and travel to title-chasing Boston next week.

“Both teams played like was like a pre-season or training game,” said Rebels boss Karl Marginson.

“We haven’t achieved our targets this season and it’s difficult to instil endeavour into the players when they’re disappointed with themselves.”

The Rebels almost took an early lead through skipper David Chadwick, but Burscough went ahead 26 minutes in with a header from a well-worked free kick.

Carlos Roca spurned a golden opportunity to equalise moments later when he put a penalty wide, and FC were fortunate to keep the score at 1-0 in the second half as Burscough missed a host of chances to increase their lead.
