Farsley Celtic Deaf face an important game on Sunday, as they travel to St Albans City Deaf in the second leg of their EDF Challenge Cup quarter-final.
The Celts enter the game with the advantage after goals from Kieran Carey and Hashim Mahmood saw the team triumph in the first leg, but a consolation goal for the opposition made it so the tie remains in the balance at 2-1, and Farsley still have work to do.
Prior to the first leg meeting, the Celts had defeated St Albans 6-1 and 5-1 in their previous two encounters, meaning the Celt Army will be entering the match as the favourites, and remain confident of cementing their place in the next round.
Farsley Manager Kris Burns said: “It would mean a lot to get through to the semi-finals, it’s a trophy we haven’t won.
“The lads have been training hard to ensure we remain consistent after such a successful season last season.”
“Our experience will hopefully help us to progress to the next round.”
Farsley managed to bring success to the North last season after so many years of southern success when they won the English Deaf League, and Burns believes that success in this competition this time round will only help grow the attraction of Farsley Celtic Deaf.
The game takes place at the Samuel Ryder Academy in St Albans this Sunday.
