Margy confident after 'performance of the season'

Manager Karl Marginson is in confident mood ahead of the visit of Lancaster City to Gigg Lane this Saturday especially considering the manner in which Chorley were dispatched on Wednesday night.

FC United are unbeaten in 14 league games and are now in fourth spot just eight points behind top-of-the-table Skelmersdale United with four games in hand.

Margy was delighted with the result and the way his team conducted themselves against Chorley. He said: "It was probably one of our best performances of the season, especially in past few weeks. We’ve looked a bit desperate at times but we’ve kept plugging away.

"On Wednesday, I thought we worked real hard, kept the ball very well and we took our chances. Having said that I thought we possibly should have scored more but I’ve got no complaints as it keeps our run going. It’s now 14 games unbeaten in the league and that’s very impressive, we just need to kick on from here now in what is going to be a hectic schedule."

Margy was very keen to phrase his winger Jerome Wright after his recent run of form. Wright provided the assist in United’s first two goals on Wednsday night. He said: "I could watch him play all day long. The way he gets the ball and starts running at people it’s poetry in motion. The balls he puts across the box, strikers just love balls like that."

There were a few concerned faces in the crowd when Rory Patterson was substituted after an hour of the game but Marginson admitted it was purely precautionary. He added: "We told Rory after he got his second goal that he had two minutes to score his third otherwise he was coming off and he was happy with that.

"He knows we have to be careful with injuries and resting people at the right time. Everyone in the dressing room knows there are times when some of them aren’t going to be playing. That’s where I come in. I have to earn my corn now for picking players for the right game and right positions."
