Dabbers Fall Over Twice

 Nantwich Town fall to Burscough and FC United of Manchester.

NANTWICH Town are suffering another rough patch in their Evo-Stik Premier Divison season as they stretched their losing run to four games over the weekend.

After last week's resounding 6-0 loss at the hands of runaway leaders Halifax Town, Dabbers travelled to mid-table Burscough hoping to turn their fortunes around.

Unfortunately for Kevin Street and Darren Tinson's men, they slumped to a 3-1 loss after home goals from Parry, Leadbetter and Farley.

Jordan Connerton managed to grab an equaliser early in the second half, but the hosts were shaken into action and dispatched Dabbers with two second-half strikes to claim victory.

Connerton was on the scoresheet again on Tuesday, but his fourth minute goal was simply a tease as visitors FC United of Manchester scored four goals of their own to maitain their push for the play-offs.

Nantwich need to resume the tough defending that saw them notch only their third clean sheet of the season against Retford in Febuary, but the continuing injury crisis means the joint managers have rarely been able to field the same team twice in a row.

They travel to 10th place Kendal Town on Saturday, kick off 3pm, before heading to bottom side Retford on Tuesday, kick off 7.45pm, when Nantwich will fancy their chances of getting their season back on the right track.
