The victory extended Nicky Law's side's unbeaten run to ten games in all competitions, eight in the league and they are now up to seventh in the table.
FC United took the lead in first half stoppage time when Sam Madeley crashed home a shot but after the interval it was the Reds of Derbyshire who shone.
Lindon Meikle (pictured) netted the equaliser from close range on 61 minutes before Sam Jones curled home a free-kick on 69 minutes and Dan Bradley added a third on 84 to seal victory in front of 3,338.
