Promotion party?

FC United could be celebrating sealing promotion on Wednesday night against Chadderton if we take all three points. With Flixton and Nelson still scheduled to play each other, a victory tomorrow night will see FC United playing First Division football next season.


We could also be crowned champions on Saturday if Nelson fail to take all three points in a tricky away tie at Oldham Town.


Only Flixton, Nelson and Padiham can catch United now, but that could change this week. If United beat Chadderton that will put them on 81 points, a feat that can only be beaten by Nelson who currently lie in fifth place but have eight games in hand.


If United do take all three points on Wednesday then they could be win the title on Saturday as Nelson would need to beat Oldham Town. The celebrations could then begin in full after the friendly at Clitheroe FC.


The club will keep all the supporters fully up-to-date on how the results in these other games go and whether we can begin to celebrate this week.
