FC Isle of Man suffered defeat at the hands of Prestwich Heys at the Bowl on Saturday evening.

The Ravens went into the match on the back of a 4-0 loss away at high-flying Bury AFC in midweek, searching for a first win since their 1-0 success over Padiham on August 23.

The weekend’s Premier Division clash in the North West Counties League was a largely even affair but the visitors proved clinical in front of goal in the second half.

After a goalless opening 45, two goals in less than four minutes turned the game on its head infavour of Prestwich.

Firstly, Dylan Fitzgerald fired home a sublime strike from outside the area to give the visitors the lead, before Kai Haigh doubled their advantage moments later.

Despite the Ravens’ best efforts to find a way back into the match, a breakaway goal from Matthew Davies in the closing stages of the game sealed a 3-0 victory for the visitors.

The Ravens will be back in action this evening (Tuesday) when they travel to Irlam in Greater Manchester - kick-off is 7.45pm.
