HUCKNALL Town will play in front of their biggest crowd of the season on Saturday (March 20) when they visit FC United of Manchester.
They will also be facing a wounded side who will be desperate to put things right in front of their own fans after they became the first team to lose to the Unibond League, Premier Division's whipping boys, Durham City.

FC United, who attract crowds of more than 2,000 to their games at Gigg Lane, the home of Coca-Cola League Two side Bury, were embarrassed on Saturday March 13 when Durham came away with a 2-1 win.

Prior to the game, the north-east side had lost all of their 28 matches, conceding 137 goals in the process.

FC United followed that defeat with a 4-3 loss at Matlock Town on Tuesday March 16, so The Yellows will have to be on guard for a backlash.

Trevor Hill, who is working alongside Town boss Danny Bryant, said The Yellows would be going to Gigg Lane for the win.

"We had them watched against Matlock," said Hill. "We think they are there for the taking."

Town will be without the suspended trio of Dion Meikle, Cashel Walters and Reuben Wiggins-Thomas. Defenders Adrian Hawes and David Boafo are struggling with knee and calf injuries respectively.

The Yellows are also in Unibond action on Tuesday March 23 at relegation-threatened Ossett Town.
