Ten-man FC United produced a stirring comeback to sink FA Trophy quarter-finalists Chasetown 4-2 and maintain their push for the Evo-Stik Premier play-offs.
The Rebels were really up against it when defender Richard Battersby received his marching orders for the foul which led to Dean Perrow firing the visitors in front with a 44th-minute penalty.
But Karl Marginson’s men still found time to equalise before the break when Jake Cottrell arrived at the near post to rifle home Matthew Wolfenden’s cross.
FC continued to make light of their disadvantage after the break with Mike Norton beating keeper Ryan Price from a tight angle to give them a 66th-minute lead and then making it 3-1 soon after following fine work by Lee Neville.
Chasetown’s Ben Jevons pulled a goal back six minutes from time but the last word went to United as Matthew Tierney set up Wolfenden for a well-taken fourth.
The win takes FC into the top-half of the table and, with 10 points from their last four games, they’re now well and truly back in the promotion hunt ahead of this weekend’s visit of Burscough.
