FC UNITED boss Karl Marginson believes the Rebels have now shown there is life after Rory Patterson and Stuart Rudd.

FC will renew acquaintances with their former strike pair tonight as they visit Bradford Park Avenue, who lured Patterson and Rudd from the Rebels this summer.

Kyle Wilson has been tasked with taking on the goal-scoring duties and struck a hat-trick to take his tally to six in just five league games.

"Every game we've had against Bradford Park Avenue has been a close encounter," said Marginson. "I'm sure this one'll be no different and we'll try to win it.

"It wasn't fantastic by any means on Saturday but we played well in patches and it's something to build on.

"Some people said we'd struggle to score goals after losing the two lads from last year but I don't think that's going to be the case and Kyle went out and proved it on Saturday."

Danny Self could continue at right-back tonight after filling in for Liam Foster on Saturday, while Dave Neville and Adam Turner are suspended.
