Rebels eye cup glory

By Liam Chronnell

FC United tonight return from their European exploits to take on old rivals Flixton in the quarter-finals of the Manchester FA Premier Cup.

The Rebels took advantage of a free weekend in their UniBond League calendar to take part in an indoor five-a-side tournament in Germany, which also included Bundesliga side, Energie Cotbuss.

After shocking Blue Square Premier outfit Droylsden in the previous round, Karl Marginson's side will fancy their chances against Flixton, from one division below, as they look to book their place in the last four at Radcliffe Borough's Stainton Park.
