Russ Wilcox has provided a squad injury update following our defeat at Southport.

The Celts visit Bradford (Park Avenue) in the FA Trophy on Saturday and then host Chester in league action a week on Tuesday, before a 10-day break.

Russ Wilcox has been unable to call on three of his centre halves in the last two outings, with Isaac Assenso joining Adam Clayton and Andy Butler in the treatment room.

Adam Clayton has stepped up his recovery with running sessions, working individually on the pitch before yesterday’s game.

The Farsley Manager said: “The main thing with Clayts (Adam Clayton), I think his movement is okay, I think it’s the contact, he’s still feeling pain in his back area.

“Andy Butler had an injection to remove some fluid from the back of his knee, fingers crossed he can get back into training very soon, hopefully next week.

“Isaac (Assenso) is still sore ankle-wise, we’re not quite sure what that is, there’s no swelling there, no bruising there, so we’re not quite sure, he just seems to have lost a bit of power.

“So it’s a difficult period for us, which you have to deal with as a manager and you have to deal with as a club.”
