On Saturday 26th January, FC United welcome Stockport County to Broadhurst Park, in the National League North kick off 3pm.
Last Saturday was disappointing in the extreme. The lads didn’t gel and never came to terms with the pitch. As the game wore on it was patently obvious one goal would win it and Ashton duly delivered.
We now have a mountain to climb to survive starting with the visit of the blues from Stockport.
