Men's First Team
National League North Sat 18 February The Citadel
Farsley Celtic

Farsley Celtic host Chorley at the Citadel on Saturday, with Russ Wilcox’s side looking to continue their excellent recent form.

The Celts are unbeaten in their last four, picking up seven points out of a possible nine in the league, whilst also defeating Hungerford Town to reach the Isuzu FA Trophy quarter-finals.

Farsley have been particularly strong at home of late, winning their last three games, whilst also going without a defeat since November 22, a run that spans six games.

Visitors Chorley once again find themselves in promotion contention, occupying the final play-off position as they sit seventh in the division.

Andy Preece’s side have lost just one of their last eight, and have had success on the road recently, defeating Blyth Spartans last Tuesday, before securing an impressive point at Brackley Town on Saturday.

This weekend, they will be travelling to a Farsley side who are outside of the relegation zone for the first time since early November.

Ahead of the meeting with Chorley, Russ Wilcox said: “We look forward to every game, I said to the lads let’s enjoy the period, you don’t just enjoy the game when you win, because there’s going to be bumps in the road.

“It’s a good feeling (to be out of the relegation zone), there’s still a long way to go, we know that.

“We might drop back in, we might kick on, who knows what we’re going to do, but all we can do is do our business.

“Obviously after the game you’re looking at other results, hoping people have done you favours, but the bottom line is you’ve got to do it yourself.”


Frank Mulhern will miss the third match out of his four-game suspension. Harry Jessop and Danny Devine will both be in line to make their home debuts.
