New boys to start in cup clash

New signings Simon Garner and Danny Warrender will start Saturday’s FA Cup clash at Nantwich Town as Karl Marginson aims to stop his side from leaking goals.

The Reds conceded four goals on Tuesday night at bottom of the table Prescot Cables and Margy has decided enough is enough - announcing that Garner will start at left-back and Warrender at right-back.

Margy said: "They are two really good quality players and they’ll both help towards keeping clean sheets. Simon is 26 and brings good experience whilst Danny has played in the Football League. He was also reserve team captain at City, so he’s got leadership qualities."

With Rob Nugent just returning to light training after knee surgery, Adam Turner will be hoping to partner David Chadwick after serving a two match suspension but the young defender will have to overcome a stomach bug in time.

Margy is confident that if United can start keeping clean sheets, something they have done just once this season, the victories will start rolling in. He said: "Some of the football we’ve been playing has been fantastic. We’ve got lost of options in midfield and Kyle Wilson is scoring for fun. We just need to do better at the back."

And Margy hopes FC United can make it a great weekend of football if Manchester United can do the business at Anfield. He said: "We’ll be listening to the match on the team coach on the way down. Beating Liverpool would be a great start to the day and then hopefully we’ll be able to make it even better."
