    AFC Flixton's unbeaten start to the Accountants League season came to an end as they were edged out by West Manchester.

    Missing seven first-team regulars, Flixton were undone by a second-half master-class by their top-of-the-table opponents.

    Flixton dominated the early stages and their pressure was rewarded after 30 minutes when Adam Tauber headed into the net from a corner.

    Flixton had the majority of possession for the remainder of the first half but lacked a cutting edge and failed to cement their lead. They would go on to rue the missed chances.

    Indeed Manchester went on to show why they are top of the league. Two goals in quick succession turned the game on its head, and Flixton were unable to hit back.

    Flixton created an opening in the final minute, only to be denied by by what Flixton boss Stuart Delmonte described as a "sensational wonder save".

    Delmonte believes there were many positives to take out of the game. He told JC Sport: "It was a game of two halves; we had all the possession in the first half, but only scored one goal. We needed to finish the game off whilst we were dominating. We just weren't ourselves in the second half, and credit to West Manchester, they played the better football and deserved the win.

    "A special mention is also due to Andy Rosenberg, who starred in the centre of midfield, and to Ben Tier, who was a rock in defence.

    Having received a bye into the last 16 of the Morrison, Delmonte is confident his players will bounce back and continue to challenge for silverware.

    He said: "We will come back next week - our aim is to get back to winning ways at Home against Vida."
