United traveled to the Shore Road on Saturday last for this league encounter with Grove United who have had a series of good results in recent weeks including a surprise defeat of Olympic a few weeks ago.
United started strongly and unlike some of their recent games their early endeavor was rewarded when Ethan Majury scored. For the remainder of the half United continued to play flowing football but that essential second goal did not come.
Grove came out with more conviction in the second half and secured an equaliser however United soon got on the front foot and Aaron Cheevers scored to give his team a deserved lead.
All over the pitch United worked tirelessly but again failure to put clear light between them and the opposition meant that they were vulnerable and Grove got a vital equaliser which may ultimately prove decisive in their fight to move away from the relegation zone.
This week United welcome Ballywalter Recreation, another team threatened with relegation, to the Millbridge.
The Swifts Supplementary Cup match against Strangford was postponed for a fourth time.
