FC United will have to overcome the disappointment of back-to-back defeats when they travel to Lancaster in the FA Trophy.

The Rebel Reds’ dreams of FA Cup glory were dashed when strikes Mark Danks, an Adam Tong own goal and Wayne Riley condemned them to a 3-0 defeat at Northwich Victoria.

“We’ve had a great run,” said FC manager Karl Marginson. “Credit to the lads for getting so far.”

There will be extra spice for the Vodkat League Cup second round clash at the weekend when Daisy Hill host Atherton LR.

Daisy, who have had an encouraging start to their season in the Vodkat North West Counties First Division, will be after upsetting their neighbours who play in a higher division.

Atherton Colls are in league action where they will be after precious league points at Oldham Boro, a side also desperate to haul themselves away from the bottom of the First Division.
