Late goals prove costly for Rebels

 Source: MEN

 FC United let the Supporters Direct Cup slip from their grasp as they fell to two late goals against fellow Evo-Stik Premier fans’ club Chester at the Deva Stadium.

The Rebels appeared set to take the trophy when still leading through Lee Neville’s 31st minute headed strike with time running out.

But teenage Chester sub Joe Ormrod then smashed in a stunning equaliser with nine minutes left and FC scarcely had time to recover before Chester’s recent signing from Droylsden, Alex Brown, tapped in to give the hosts a 2-1 victory.
