Rebels ready for 'biggest game'

30/ 4/2008

KARL Marginson has described tonight's UniBond Division One North playoff semi-final against Bamber Bridge as the biggest match in FC United's history.

And the Rebels manager is convinced his players will suffer no hangover from missing out on the title by just a single point last weekend.

United face Bamber Bridge at Gigg Lane tonight for the chance to take on the winners of Skelmersdale and Curzon this weekend.

Marginson said: "There is no sense of us feeling sorry for ourselves. History tells you that the side that comes closest to going up often fall away in the playoffs.

"But for me it doesn't matter if it is second v fifth or third v fourth, it's a case of who is in the best form and that is us."
