Farsley Celtic travel to Gateshead on Saturday in the Isuzu FA Trophy quarter-finals looking to extend an already club-best run in the competition.

The Celts will head to the North East full of confidence after a stunning 2-1 win at high-flying King’s Lynn Town on Tuesday, a victory that made it just one defeat in seven on the road.

Like Farsley, Gateshead also find themselves in a fight to avoid relegation and find themselves just the wrong side of the drop zone, fourth from bottom.

The Heed have won just one of their last six, and this will be their third-straight game at home, following on from a 2-1 defeat to Chesterfield and a goalless draw with Halifax Town.

Mike Williamson’s side have already seen off two Vanarama National League North outfits in the FA Trophy this season, defeating Gloucester City and Banbury United, alongside National League Oldham Athletic.

Looking ahead to the fixture, Russ Wilcox said: “The resolve of the team is tremendous, the togetherness, the fighting spirit.

“They’ll be defeats, they’ll be draws again, hopefully wins, but I think that’s one defeat in eleven and that was against Fylde.

“We now look forward to hopefully an exciting day for the supporters, and for the club as a whole, especially going there on a high.

“King’s Lynn were in that league last year, so it’s like a bit of a warm-up game.

“We know we’re going to go there, and they’re probably going to have a lot of the ball, it’s just doing the basics well.”


Russ Wilcox will hope to have Tom Allan available after he missed our midweek trip to King’s Lynn.
