Men's First Team
National League North Tue 25 October The Citadel
Farsley Celtic
  • Johnson (33')
  • Allan (71')

Farsley Celtic will be looking to bounce back at the Citadel on Tuesday evening, as Kettering Town make the long trip North.

The Celts will be looking for a reaction after a disappointing outing on Saturday, when they conceded four second-half goals in a 5-1 defeat at Gloucester City.

Kettering Town have also been struggling of late, losing their last four games to leave them 20th in the division, just two points above Farsley; they are also winless on the road.

Therefore, despite the season being a little over a quarter of the way through, this has the makings of an important game for both sides.

However, Russ Wilcox does not want to place too much emphasis on a single game, as he said: “All games are big, I look at it like that, every game you’ve got an opportunity to win three points.

“Things can turn quickly, Bradford Park Avenue have won again, everyone had them dead and buried but they’ve got a couple of wins now.

“We’ve got to stick together, we’ve got to get through this period, we’ve got to get people back, that’s a certainty.”

And remaining proactive in strengthening the squad is undoubtedly something Wilcox believes can get Farsley moving in the right direction.

He continued: “We haven’t got a big squad. The depth of the squad probably isn’t probably big enough, certainly compared to other teams, but we accept that, we are where we are for a reason, but it would be nice to get a couple more in if we could to put pressure on people in certain positions.”


Andy Butler, Adam Clayton and Lewis Turner are all unlikely to feature through injury.

Butler is awaiting the results of a precautionary scan, whilst Clayton remains a couple of weeks away from a return.
