FC United squandered a two-goal lead as they were pegged back to 2-2 at Ashton on Easter Monday.

The Rebels went in two goals to the good at half time following a superb first half display, but the home side fought back after the break to claim a draw.

Carlos Roca opened the scoring in the ninth minute with a cool penalty, and FC looked to have sealed the win soon after when the winger netted his second of the game with a brilliant strike.

However, goals from Ashton’s Matty O’Neill and Adam Morning in the opening seven minutes of the second half meant that Karl Marginson’s side had to settle for a point.
