FC United v Curzon Ashton

FC UNITED face a true test of their championship credentials at home tonight against in-form Curzon Ashton.

Unbeaten in the league since November, Karl Marginson's breakaway side appear to be within grasping distance of the North West Counties League title. But Curzon have won 16 of their last 17 matches in an astonishing run of form and are now arguably the strongest challengers to the Rebels for top spot.

A victory for Curzon would put them just five points behind FC United with two games in hand.
