Breakaway club FC United of Manchester are just one game away from a third consecutive promotion.

The club, formed in 2005 by Manchester United fans following the Glazer takeover at Old Trafford, face Skelmersdale United at Gigg Lane, Bury on Saturday afternoon (1500 BST).

And victory in the play-off final would take Karl Marginson's side up to the Unibond Premier next season.

FC reached the final with a tense 3-2 win in their play-off semi against Bamber Bridge on Wednesday night.

They finished the regular league season in second spot, just a point behind champions Bradford Park Avenue.
