United opened the scoring against the run of play in the first half, but just before half-time Harry Holden's cracking finish brought the scores level.

Fine work from Danny Kelly down the right wing saw him send a cross into the penalty area after the interval, with United player-boss Leigh Franks sending the ball past his own keeper.

The visitors then levelled when a free-kick broke to James Pinder to net a second United goal.

Two superb Ryan Matson goals after the interval pulled Itis Itis further clear, his first a superb first-time shot from the centre-circle after the Ayton keeper's clearance fell straight to him and the second an excellent finish from the wing after winning the ball from the visiting gloveman.
