Farsley Celtic return to action in the Isuzu FA Trophy third round on Tuesday evening, with Chester making the trip to the Citadel.

It has been two weeks since the Celts were last in action following the recent cold snap, but Russ Wilcox’s side will be buoyed by their most recent outing, an impressive 2-0 victory over high-flying King’s Lynn Town.

Like Farsley, it has also been two weeks since the Seals last completed 90 minutes, when they recorded an excellent victory of their own, defeating Kidderminster Harriers 2-0 away from home in front of the BT Sport cameras.

It has been an outstanding first season under the stewardship of Callum McIntyre for Chester who sit third in the National League North, whilst also possessing an outstanding away record that has seen from lose just once on the road in the league.

That away record is something Farsley will be fully aware of, as McIntyre’s side tasted victory at the Citadel just last month, running out 2-0 victors.

However, it was certainly an evenly-contested fixture, and both sides will know they will be in for a tough evening in their quest to reach the last 32 of the competition.

Monday’s FA Trophy fourth round draw certainly provided further incentive, should it be required, with tonight’s victor rewarded with another home tie, against either Marske United or Marine.


Kian Scales will serve the final game of his suspension following his dismissal in our first meeting with the Seals.

Otherwise, Russ Wilcox will be hopeful of being able to call on a fully fit squad.


Tickets are available to purchase on the gate.
