 FC UNITED will travel to old rivals Bradford Park Avenue in the Evo-Stik Premier Division play-offs on Thursday night after missing out on home advantage on the final day of the season.

Kendal Town grabbed a last-minute winner on Monday to send the Rebels to the Horsfall Stadium, with Colwyn Bay entertaining North Ferriby United in the other semi-final for a place in Monday’s final.

Captain Mike Norton’s 31st goal of the campaign had cancelled out Mark Jackson’s early opener at Gigg Lane before Kendal were awarded a penalty deep into injury time.

Stand-in goalkeeper Grant Shenton saved the spot-kick but former FC winger Danny Williams pounced on the rebound to seal the win and leave Karl Marginson’s side fourth in the table.

United moved into second last Wednesday when they beat Marine 2-1 – Norton and Ben Deegan were on target – before winning 2-1 at Matlock Town on Saturday with goals from Matthew Wolfenden and Jerome Wright
