FC United of Manchester still need one win to guarantee National League North survival ahead of their home meeting with York City.
The Lancashire outfit lie five places and points above the drop zone, meaning relegation remains unlikely, but Tom Greaves’ men will still be looking to remove any lingering anxiety with second-bottom serial escapologists Gainsborough Trinity travelling to already-doomed North Ferriby tonight.
Despite their indifferent campaign, United also remain a tough proposition at their Broadhurst Park base, having beaten top two Salford (3-2) and Harrogate Town (3-2) in front of their own fans, along with sharing the spoils against third-placed Brackley (1-1).
A record of 11 home victories is also the best outside of National League North’s top five teams and United have won ten of their last 14 matches on their own soil.
That run stretches back to the first weekend in September and only includes two defeats, although the most recent was a 2-1 reverse to Darlington at the weekend.
