FC United made a welcome return to winning ways with a comfortable 4-1 Evo-Stik premier division victory over Ossett Town at Stalybridge Celtic’s Bower Fold ground on Wednesday night.

Mike Norton slotted the Rebels into a 14th minute lead and then quickly turned provider to set up a second goal for Jerome Wright.

Carlos Roca made it 3-0 within 90 seconds of the restart, volleying in from cross.

And, though the visitors pulled one back when a Matthew Stirland shot took a wicked deflection on its way in, Roca struck again late on to round off a win which ends a run of six defeats in seven league games for Karl Marginson’s men.
