FC United slipped to a sixth defeat in seven games as their season continues to fizzle out.

The Rebels looked to be play-off certainties after taking 16 points from a possible 18, but a terrible March has seen their charge falter badly.

After their 5-1 midweek thrashing at the hands of leaders Bradford Park Avenue, Karl Marginson’s side dropped to 13th in the UniBond Premier League when they suffered a second successive home defeat against title-chasing Guiseley on Saturday.

FC, however, have plenty of opportunity to return to winning ways with three games in six days. They travel to Marine tomorrow and Ashton United on Easter Monday, before taking on Kendal Town at Gigg Lane on Wednesday.
