KARL Marginson branded FC United the new invincibles of the UniBond first division north as they continue to push for a third successive title at home to Chorley.
A 2-2 draw with Radcliffe Borough, followed by a 2-1 win against Woodley Sports on Monday, leaves the Rebels 11 points behind leaders Skelmersdale, but with five games in hand.
It was an impressive response after the 3-1 Manchester Premier Cup defeat by Radcliffe last week.
And Marginson is looking for them to make up more ground on the leaders when they face Chorley at Gigg Lane on Wednesday, part of a punishing schedule of 15 games in five weeks.
"We've got that inner belief and we've got to keep encouraging them," he said.
"They believe they are invincible at the moment.
"There will still be some twists and turns, especially with all our fixtures coming up, but it is in our own hands now."
