After early chances at both ends, it was LEWIS UNWIN who opened the scoring for FC United from four yards out on 13 minutes when he steered home a Steve Affleck left wing cross.
FC United goalkeeper Sulaiman Sajjad pulled off a particularly smart save on 33 minutes, but he could do nothing to prevent the home side grabbed the equaliser on 35 minutes, when SALOU SAL curled in a shot off the foot of the post.
On 59 minutes, FC United regained the lead from the penalty mark after Mason Gregg has been bundled over by the home ’keeper.
STEVE AFFLECK stepped up to send the ’keeper the wrong way from the twelve yard spot.
