Farsley Celtic head back on the road this evening, as Russ Wilcox’s make the trip to the Yorkshire coast to face Scarborough Athletic.

It caps off a run of three-straight away games in seven days, with the Celts already clocking up some serious miles with trips to AFC Telford United and Hungerford Town.

However, despite Farsley’s struggles on the road this season, the last week has brought success, with a point secured at the New Bucks Head Stadium, before Hungerford Town were defeated in the Isuzu FA Trophy fifth round.

The Celts will be coming up against a well-rested Scarborough side who have been out of action for the past 10 days, their last competitive outing seeing the Seadogs defeat Kidderminster Harriers 1-0 on February 4.

Jonathan Greening’s side remains firmly in the play-off positions in their first season at this level, sitting fifth in the division, and have improved on their defensive struggles recently, keeping back-to-back clean sheets.

It will undoubtedly be a tough task for the Celt Army, but it also represents a chance to make it four games without defeat, and round out an excellent stint on the road.

Speaking after Saturday’s win over Hungerford Town, Bobby Johnson said: “We’ve got a strong team full of characters, that’s how we play every week, we dig deep, we always do, and that’s how we win games.

“We’ve got really good I think recently at just grinding out results which is something we desperately need to do moving forward if we want to get where we want to in the league.

“You look at the past five or six games, we’re six unbeaten at home and our away form’s getting better, we’ve started picking up points or a result, so it’s huge.

“I think we’ve gained a bit of momentum, we’ve got a tough run of fixtures coming up so hopefully we can continue our form into those.”


Farsley will once again be without the services of Frank Mulhern who misses the second of his four-game suspension.
