Men's First Team
National League North Tue 21 March The Citadel
Farsley Celtic
  • Williams (11', 44')
  • Atkinson (73')
  • Purver (70')

Farsley Celtic will be looking to return to winning ways on Tuesday evening, as play-off chasing Darlington visit the Citadel.

The Celts welcome a Quakers side who are firmly in the promotion mix this season, sitting fifth in the division, whilst they also have games in hand on those clubs around them.

Alun Armstrong’s men have suffered a dip in form of late, but snapped a run of six games without a win on Saturday, comfortably defeating Hereford 3-0 at Blackwell Meadows.

The Celts head into this fixture on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Buxton on Saturday, a defeat which ended a run of just one loss in 12 for Russ Wilcox’s side.

However, both of Farsley’s two defeats in the last 13 have come on the road, and the Celts have enjoyed real success at home this season, without a defeat in nine at home, a run that stretches all the way back to November 22.

A run of four-straight home games, beginning tonight with Darlington, could decide the Celt Army’s fate this season.

It’s been a relentless couple of months for Farsley, as Russ Wilcox said: “We’ve literally gone Saturday/Tuesday I think now for 11 weeks on the trot, I don’t think any other club in our league has done that.

“Massive credit to the group, they’ve kept themselves fit, they’ve kept themselves in good shape, they’ve kept themselves focused on each game.

“We haven’t done a lot of training in that period, a lot of the stuff has been done off the tactics board.”


Russ Wilcox should have a fully-fit squad to select from, with no fresh injury concerns.
