Karl Marginson believes that his in-form FC United side can send out a message to by beating North Ferriby at Gigg Lane on Saturday.

The Rebels are yet to taste defeat in 2010, and go into the game against the promotion-chasing Villagers on the back of a four-game winning streak.

“We’re really on the up now and we’ll head into the game full of confidence - I think a win would show the rest of the division that we mean business,” said the manager.

“They’ll be looking forward to the occasion of playing at Gigg Lane but we can give them a good game - if we’re at our best then we can beat any side in the league.”

Meanwhile, new signings Mark Ayres and Angelos Tsiatkis could make their home debuts.

“Mark came on for the last few minutes at Frickley so he’s in contention, and we’re just waiting on international clearance for Angelos,” said Marginson.

Prior to the game, FC will host a ‘Beyond the Debt’ supporter rally at Gigg Lane to debate the issues of debt in football and supporter-ownership of clubs.

The rally, which starts at midday and is free to attend, includes speeches from Supporters Direct (who represent fans throughout the UK) and representatives from German top-flight club Schalke 04.
