FC face old foes

6/ 8/2008

FC United continue their pre-season programme with a trip to old foes Curzon Ashton tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).

It's the first of two friendly outings in 48 hours for the rebel Reds, whose clash with Nantwich has been brought forward to Friday (8pm) and will now be played at Witton Albion.

Tonight's tussle at the Tameside Stadium will give FC boss Karl Marginson another opportunity to address how best to replace star strike duo Rory Patterson and Stuart Rudd following their shock switch to big-spending UniBond premier rivals Bradford Park Avenue.

Marginson's forays into the summer transfer market have so far seen him snap up former Altrincham pair Kyle Wilson and Carlos Roca.
