Margy prepared to go to Hull and back

Manager Karl Marginson is determined to kick-start FC United’s season on Saturday with the trip to Hull’s North Ferriby United in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup - and the good news for the boss is he has a full squad to choose from.

Jerome Wright and Simon Carden should both be fit after shaking off knocks which kept them out of Wednesday’s defeat at Worksop and Rob Nugent is available despite being sent off in the match as his suspension will commence in two weeks.

Margy is unwavering in his belief that his team are good enough to compete. He said: "The last couple of results have obviously been disappointing but both games could have been very different.

"On Wednesday night for example, Chaddy hit the bar with a header and then they’ve gone up the other end and scored. If that had gone in, it’d be a completely different game. We created chances even with 10 men but it just wasn’t our night."

The FA Cup provides a welcome distraction for Margy and he knows it is a great opportunity for him and his players to test their skills against clubs higher up the football pyramid. However, promotion from the UniBond Premier Division is the number one target and Margy is keen to get back to it, hopefully after booking a place in the third qualifying round.

He said: "No team is setting this league on fire - they’re all beating each other, which is good. If we can put a decent run together, one that I know we’re capable of, then we’ll be right back amongst it at the top."
