Farsley Celtic head to title-chasing AFC Fylde on Tuesday evening, looking to end the month of February unbeaten.

Russ Wilcox’s side are without defeat in seven since the end of January, with five of those coming on the road, a stark improvement compared to earlier this season.

However, each of the Celts’ last three outings have ended in draws, and they will face a tough task by the Fylde Coast as they look to return to winning ways.

The Coasters currently sit second in the division, level on points with league leaders King’s Lynn Town, and have lost just one of their last 12.

They faced title rivals King’s Lynn on Tuesday evening, sharing the spoils in a thrilling 3-3 draw, after leading 3-1. It was a result which made it six goals conceded in 180 minutes at Mill Farm, following their 3-1 defeat to Hereford last weekend.

Looking ahead to our second trip of the season to Fylde, Russ Wilcox said: “It’s tough, I thought we were outstanding there in the cup, we should have won on the day.

“What they can do is rotate, I think they did that in the cup, the previous game they made six changes, and they made six changes for the replay when they came to Farsley.

“We know how difficult that’s going to be, a huge budget, a full-time team, so it’s a bit of a free hit.

“Nobody expects us to go there and get anything, but nobody expected Hereford to do what they did last week, so we go there with belief, we go there with confidence, and I know the boys will have a right good go.”


Dave Syers is nearing a return for the Celts, which would leave Russ Wilcox with a fully-fit squad to select from.
