DANNY Allen returns to the bench for FC United tonight - after scoring four goals on his full debut!
Rebels host Atherton Collieries at Gigg Lane (7.45pm) after scoring 23 goals without reply in their last three home games, culminating in Saturday's 7-0 slaughter of Stone Dominoes in which manager Karl Marginson fielded a largely second-string side.
But Marginson will revert to something close to his strongest team tonight, which means Allen will be among the subs.

That allows for a resumption of the 44-goal strike partnership of Stuart Rudd, who netted twice on Saturday, and Rory Patterson, who grabbed the last goal after being robbed of the sixth by Allen claiming the last touch.
"Danny did fantastically well," said Marginson. "But we will have to manage him carefully."
The Rebels are seeking clarification from the FA over the impending suspension of skipper Dave Chadwick for the crunch FA Vase third round tie with Quorn on December 9.
Chadwick is due to be banned for the game after collecting five bookings.
