FC UNITED can bring the title home this week after crushing Colne 5-1.

Karl Marginson's team are now just three points short of the NWCFL Division One championship.

Defender Rob Nugent netted twice in the first half and Jerome Wright put the visitors three up by half-time in front of 838 spectators at the Holt House Stadium.

The Rebels were cruising in the second half and 41-year-old assistant player-manager Phil Power stretched their lead before striker Stuart Rudd scored his 36th league goal of the season to make it five.
