FC United continue to limp towards the finish line as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at Burscough.

The one-time play-off hopefuls have now dropped to 13th in the UniBond Premier League table after a six-game winless run.

The Rebels’ cause on Saturday was not helped by Carlos Roca’s missed first-half penalty. And Burscough made the visitors pay when Craig Mahon looped a header over debut goalkeeper Grant Shenton for a 26th-minute winner.

FC travel to third-placed Boston United on Saturday before taking on Ashton United at Gigg Lane in their penultimate game of the season on Wednesday.
