FC United bid for a place in their first cup final on Saturday when they host Congleton Town at Gigg Lane in the second leg of the NW Counties Challenge Cup.

The tie is nicely poised after a 2-2 draw in the first leg so manager Karl Marginson will draft in several fringe players for tonight's game against Silsden at Keighley.

The game marks a hectic spell of ten games in the final 30 days of the season, or 11 if they reach the cup final.

The Rebels have chalked up an unbeaten run of 15 games and Marginson says: "It's less than 48 hours before the semi-final so we will rest some of the lads.

"They have been fantastic in that run and some deserve a rest."
