York City Futsal are still three points above the relegation zone following their weekend 6-3 defeat at FC Salisbury United.

The Minstermen extended their recent barren run to eight games without a victory despite initially leading as Daniel Pedras was twice on target alongside new skipper Fabinho Almeida.

Elsewhere, bottom club London Genesis ended Cambridge United’s lengthy nine-game unbeaten sequence with a 6-4 home triumph.

Fellow strugglers Loughborough also collected a surprise point after sharing four goals with top-of-the-table visitors Reading Escolla.
