Men's First Team
National League North Tue 21 February Latimer Park
Farsley Celtic

Farsley Celtic travel to Kettering Town on Tuesday evening looking to continue their excellent recent form, in what is a big game towards the bottom of the National League North.

The Celts are unbeaten in five, and could leapfrog Kettering with a win, which could prove vitally important as a number of sides fighting to avoid relegation face each other this week.

Lee Glover’s side have lost just one of their last five games, but are also winless in their last three, failing to score in each of those games.

The Poppies had back-to-back goalless draws with Buxton and AFC Fylde, before they suffered a 1-0 defeat on the road at Blyth Spartans on Saturday.

Russ Wilcox’s side have endured struggles on the road this season, but have experienced a turnaround in fortunes away from the Citadel in February, winning two and drawing one of their last three.

Wilcox recognises the significance of the fixture, as he said: “Yeah, of course it is [an important game], they are six pointers, there’s no point hiding away from that, it’s a key game.

“I’ve said to the lads, rest up, it’s non-stop, it really is, and I feel for them.

“The effort they’ve been putting in to go five unbeaten and to pick a couple of wins up in that sequence is massive credit to the group.”


Frank Mulhern serves the final game of his suspension, and will be eligible to return on Saturday for our trip to Banbury United.
