Farsley Celtic face one of the division’s top two for the second-straight week on Tuesday evening, as the Celts make the trip to King’s Lynn Town.

Russ Wilcox’s side have lost just one of their last nine heading into tonight’s contest, but remains firmly entrenched in the relegation zone. However, a win against the odds against the league leaders could see them escape the drop zone.

The Celts, despite only losing to high-flying AFC Fylde since the start of February, have found themselves unable to get across the winning line in recent weeks, going without a win in five games, four of those being draws.

The Linnets currently sit on top of the Vanarama National League North on goal difference from Fylde, and are without a loss in their last six. Last time out, they defeated promotion-chasing Scarborough Athletic 3-2 in dramatic fashion at the Walks.

Despite the two sides’ contrasting fortunes in the league, it was Farsley who tasted victory at the Citadel back in December, with Frank Mulhern and Carlton Ubaezuonu both on target in a 2-0 win.

Russ Wilcox said: “By the time we’ve done King’s Lynn that’ll be four out of five away from home, so it’s not been kind to us.

“The lads will rest and recover and we’ll go again, we know how difficult that’s going to be.

“They’re a good outfit, obviously, another full-time outfit, that probably should be at the top of the league, the top two teams probably should be up there.

“Saying that, there are different kinds of pressure for Tommy (Widdrington), I know Tommy well, he’s a good guy, I’m pleased they’re up there, but we’re going there Tuesday to hopefully pick something up.”


Farsley Celtic were boosted on Saturday by the return of Dave Syers from injury, leaving Russ Wilcox with a fully-fit squad to select from.
