Manager, Terry Fleming felt he should have had all three points at Newcastle on Saturday and said well done to the lads at the end of that game. In doing so he challenged them to win this game to back up that performance.
When Sean Wright
hesitated and got caught in posession Phil McGann could only foul and from the penalty the Whites went behind to the penalty by Jared Holmes.
It had been Rainworth's first attack but it didn;t stop United from taking the game to their hosts.
Just six minutes later JORDAN HEMPENSTALL drove home from 25 yards and in the 42nd minute he gave United a deserved lead. It didn't stop there as DAVID COYDE scored with the last kick of the first half.
United must have wanted the half to continue but it didn't seem to matter when HEMPENSTALL made it 4-1 in the 52nd minute. Rainworth looked a beaten side at that stage.
United began to waste posession and Blair Anderson pulled on back for Rainworth with 30 minutes remaining.
The tension showed in the Whites play and time after time we gave the ball away cheaply. Pressure built and when Lee Cooksey scored for the home side in the 74th minute it looked as if that elusive first win wouldn't come in this game.
However United put on their tin hats and defended stoutly. Stuart Reddington
and David Hone stood out with Wright, Fleming and Coyde a strong back five to see the job through.
