FC Salisbury United Futsal 6 York City Futsal 3

York City Futsal are now eight games without a victory after relinquishing an early two-goal advantage at FC Salisbury United.

The hosts had themselves failed to win any of their previous nine fixtures, but were to eventually pull away while scoring five times during the second-half of the contest.

That gained them revenge for an opening defeat of the campaign to National Super League newcomers York by the same 6-3 scoreline back in October.

The Minstermen actually went in front after leading goalscorer Daniel Pedras worked possession onto his left foot and slotted inside the near post.

Daniel Pedras struck a second double of the season against FC Salisbury United

Skipper Fabinho Almeida then doubled their advantage when sliding the ball under the goalkeeper from close-range; to leave the visitors seemingly well-placed despite a half-volleyed reply just before the break.

But their opponents equalised early in the second-half with a shot going straight through the City keeper's legs - and soon lashed another into the top corner to move themselves in front for the first time.

Back came the visitors with Pedras adding his second following a sharp turn; although much-improved Salisbury then struck three times without further reply, including the stretching Almedia diverting a cross into his own net, as their rivals' threat faded.

Meanwhile, results from elsewhere witnessed leaders Reading Escolla held 2-2 at lowly Loughborough, while second-placed London Helvecia overcame Tranmere Rovers 7-4.

Birmingham also emerged on top 7-3 at London City, with Manchester defeating visitors Oxford City Lions by the same scoreline.

Otherwise, London Genesis handed Cambridge United a first defeat in ten games, winning 6-4.
