FC United extend fantastic run


 By Chris

 FC United of Manchester have extended their unbeaten run to a fantastic 14 games following Saturday’s narrow 2-1 win at Worksop Town. 892 were in attendance at Cannon Park as Jerome Wright’s 90th-minute winner handed maximum points to the Red Rebels.

Captain Mike Norton had cancelled out Worksop’s early opener on 71 minutes.

Wright then snatched the points for the visitors from the penalty spot as the Rebels bagged a trademark United comeback.

The result leaves FC fifth in the Northern Premier League table with six fixtures remaining.

After a very poor start to the season, Karl Marginson’s incredible 2011 form has given the club a realistic shot at promotion to the Conference North.

Full Time – Worksop Town 1-2 FC United of Manchester
Attendance – 892
