United in fine form

8/ 1/2009

FC UNITED make the long journey to Boston on Saturday, January 10, kick-off 3pm, hoping to continue the fine form that they showed in their 3-0 win over Worksop Town at the weekend.

Striker Tommy Turner furthered his impressive start to life at FC with a brace of strikes and Simon Carden added the other goal as the reds eased to victory in Nottinghamshire to set themselves up nicely for the longest away trip of the season.

FC lie 11th in the UniBond Premier League and manager Karl Marginson remains confident that his side can claim a promotion place come May.

He said: "Looking at the table, I think we have an excellent chance of going up. There’s not many points separating the top sides and everyone is beating everyone. So, if we keep playing our best, we will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season."

United also beat Salford City 3-2 in a behind closed doors friendly in midweek and they will fancy their chances against 17th-placed Boston.

Admission to the game costs £12 for adults, £8 for concessions and £4 for under-16s in the stands. The respective prices on the terraces are £10, £7 and £3.
