FC Utd ready for Marine test

August 26, 2009

FC United will not press the panic button despite their worst ever start to a season.

The Rebels lost their opening two games against Boston and Bradford and had to come from behind to rescue a point against Retford at the weekend.

But ahead of the clash with against Marine tonight, general manager Andy Walsh insisted the results do not tell the full story.

He said: "It has been our worst start - ironically, when we've got the strongest squad - but that's football.

"We've had a tough start - Boston and Bradford will be there fighting for the title. Nobody is panicking."

FC beat Marine 3-2 twice last term and Walsh expects another tough game at Gigg Lane.

"Any battle between a team from Merseyside and a team from Manchester has an extra edge to it."
