Rebels closing in on promotion

By Marc Higginson

FC United 3 Bamber Bridge 2

FC United booked a UniBond North play-off final date with Skelmersdale United on Saturday by disposing of Bamber Bridge in an entertaining encounter at Gigg Lane.

Adam Carden and Stuart Rudd gave Karl Marginson's men a half time lead, but Neil Zarac reduced the arrears early in the second half.

Jerome Wright looked to have sealed the victory, but Allan Fleming's 79th minute goal for the visitors meant it was a nervy finish for the rebels.
