WITTON Albion fell to a 3-2 home defeat to FC United of Manchester after conceding an own goal in the 90th minute.

The ball deflected in off Greg Hall after Carl Macauley's side had fought back from 2-0 down in the Northern Premier League encounter.

Rob Hopley, who entered play as a substitute 10 minutes earlier, flicked on a cross and there was Callum Saunders to volley home in the 71st minute.

And then Hopley finished off some great work down the left by Isaac Baldwin to leave the sides level entering the final 10 minutes.

Visiting keeper Dan Lavercombe blocked Saunders' header at point-blank range when Witton looked likely to score but luck was on FC United's side late on.

Andrew Baker (48) and Cian Hayes (62) had given the visitors their earlier lead.

Meanwhile, Ash Woods bagged the winner as 1874 Northwich came from behind to succeed at Prescot Cables in Northern Premier League Division One West.

He got on the end of a cross from Lee Knights in the 75th minute to condemn the hosts to a fifth consecutive loss.

Cables went in front through Mackenzie O'Neill in the 17th minute but Jack Irlam equalised with a looping header 10 minutes later.

Elsewhere, Barnton secured a 1-1 draw at Stockport Town in the North West Counties League.
