Rebels gear up for Bridlington


KARL Marginson has warned his FC United players that they cannot afford any complacency as they travel to face lowly Bridlington Town.

The Rebels smashed six unanswered goals past the Yorkshire outfit at Gigg Lane in August and go into the game in top form after five straight wins.

A win would take second-placed FC to within three points of Unibond League first division north leaders Curzon Ashton.

"Bridlington have brought in five or six new players since we beat them, and they drew at Ossett, one of the best sides in the division, last week despite going down to nine men," Marginson said.

FC's run of form continued with a 5-0 midweek mauling of Bamber Bridge in the President's Cup.

Defender Rob Nugent faces a fitness test and Cayne Hanley may return in place of Jamie Baguley, but the midfield will remain the same.
