As the season reaches the business end, FC United of Manchester are battling to secure a play off berth in the Unibond Premier League and keep alive the chance of taking another step towards the Football League.
The momentum continues at the club born from the anti-Glazer protests at Old Trafford. The anger that caused the creation of the club has given way to a more positive scenario where FC have become solidly embedded in the Manchester community.
Easter Monday is 'Red I Know Day' when FC supporters are being encouraged to persuade other United fans to come along to Gigg Lane- home of Bury FC- and see what the fuss is about.
There's no reason why Red fans can't support both teams and the club offers a home to fans who can't afford the high prices to watch modern Premiership teams.
FC need the support because the play off race is very tight and they currently lie fourth. Monday's massive game is with Nantwich Town, who lie just above them in third.
League leaders Eastwood Town seem safe in the one automatic promotion berth but teams from 2nd-5th will fight it out for the other place in Blue Square North. If FC reach that level they will be just two promotions from the Football League- an amazing rise.
Easter Monday could break the 3,000 plus crowd that turned up for their recent home game with North Ferriby- not surprisingly that's the record crowd in the division this season.
On Monday the spotlight will be on FC United though. If they can force a way to a play off spot the club will be aiming for an incredible fourth successive promotion.
