FC UNITED put eight past Glossop North End watched by Salford MP Hazel Blears.
The club hosted a 'People United Day' as their contribution to the Kick Racism Out of Football campaign and the Labour Party chairwoman liked it so much that she abandoned plans to leave at half-time and saw the Rebels hit eight for the second time on the trot at home.
Rory Patterson was again the star performer with his brace to put the visitors out of the game after just 20 minutes.
Simon Carden added a second with a well-taken goal on the stroke of half-time.
Further strikes from Jamie Phoenix, Rhodri Giggs, Dave Chadwick and Nicky Platt made the game safe, but it was Rob Nugent's 30 yard pile-driver that really delighted the 3,257 Gigg Lane crowd and put United 10 points clear of Nantwich.
