Rebel Reds take ample cup revenge

Edited from:

By Liam Chronnell

FC United ensured there was no repeat of last season's cup exit at the hands of Colne as they sealed a comfortable 4-0 third-round victory to book their place in the quarter-finals.

Karl Marginson's side were dumped out of the League Challenge Cup last term after conceding a last-minute winner to their Division One rivals.

But the Rebels avenged that defeat as they showed no signs of rustiness in their first competitive game in three weeks to cruise into the last 16, courtesy of goals from Rob Nugent, Rory Patterson, Stuart Rudd and Dave Brown.

FC will now travel to Silsden, who defeated Atherton LR 4-3 in a thrilling contest in Yorkshire, on Saturday, February 17.
