Rebels on course for promotion

KARL Marginson believes FC United have nothing to fear if they can achieve a fourth successive promotion.

Two goals in a minute from Jerome Wright and Tommy Turner at Guiseley sent the Rebels into the Unibond Premier League play-off spots for the first time this season in the 2-1 victory.

The Gigg Lane tenants travel to rivals Nantwich Town on Saturday chasing a sixth win out of seven games.

But FC will have to do it without UniBond Premier League top-scorer Kyle Wilson after the 24-goal striker limped off in the first half with a knee injury.

“We’ve been competing against enormous wage bills already this season, so if we go up again it won’t be any different,” said Marginson.

“We’ll just have to get the right players in, who want to come and play for us for the right reasons. But for now we’ve just got to go out and try to win every game we play in.”
