Rebels aiming to turn up heat

12/ 3/2008

FC UNITED boss Karl Marginson is urging his Rebels to seize the chance to increase the pressure on UniBond first division north top two Skelmersdale and Curzon Ashton by winning at Ossett Albion tonight (7.45pm).

Victory for FC, who are unbeaten in their last ten league games, would take them to within five points of second-placed Curzon and leave both the Tameside outfit and leaders Skem looking nervously over their shoulders.

"We have plenty of games in hand but must make full use of them, starting with tonight, if we're to win our third successive title," said Marginson.

FC will be looking for another solid display from goalkeeper Aaron Grundy, whose outstanding performances since he joined them on loan from Bury have just earned him the UniBond League's monthly Macron "Safe Hands" award.
