Rebels in need of promotion push at Frickley

FC United can ill afford another slip-up when they take on Frickley Athletic at Gigg Lane on Saturday.

The Rebels’ shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of second-bottom Matlock Town at the weekend severely dented their UniBond Premier League promotion hopes.

Karl Margsinon’s side – now six points off the play-off places – took a ninth-minute lead through Carlos Roca.

But the struggling Derbyshire side fought back and, after equalising before the break, they went on to grab a 92nd-minute winner.

United are expected to still be without 24-goal top-scorer Kyle Wilson (knee), while Jerome Wright is suspended after being sent off at Buxton. But FC will be boosted by the return of midfielder Simon Carden after a one-match ban.
