Reds undone by classy Cestria

Despite an encouraging opening, FC United fell to a comprehensive defeat against classy Durham Cestria at Broadhurst Park. After falling behind midway through the first half, the Reds still looked in with a chance of taking something from the game until a freak second goal shortly before the break seemed to knock the spirit out of the home side as the well-organised outfit from the North East picked off their chances all too easily in the second half.
