Men's First Team
National League North Tue 18 April The Citadel
Farsley Celtic
Blyth Spartans

Farsley Celtic face a crucial six-pointer on Tuesday night as they welcome Blyth Spartans to the Citadel in a rearranged fixture.

The match was originally set to take place on Easter Monday but following a late pitch inspection by the officials, the game was postponed due to one of the goalmouth’s surfaces being deemed unplayable.

The game could have a massive effect on the state of the relegation battle in the National League North with the Celts currently sitting in 20th place on 47 points, just two points above Tuesday’s visitors who occupy 23rd.

It’s a game which is made bigger than other results in league. 21st placed Leamington lost to Kettering Town on Easter Monday, meaning both Farsley and Blyth have an opportunity to put some breathing space in between themselves and the relegation zone.

The Celts have seen a run of mixed fortunes in recent weeks, with big victories over the likes of Brackley Town and Darlington as well as an important point away at third placed Chester on Saturday, combined with losses to the likes of Kidderminster Harriers and Boston United.

Both sides come into the match off the back of a 2-2 draws where Farsley surrendered a two goal lead at Chester despite having a one man advantage, whereas Blyth conceded two late goals to draw with Curzon Ashton.


The Celts have been hit by several injuries in recent times with Bobby Johnson and Luke Parkin being ruled out for the season.

Chris Atkinson has been missing for the last two games as he recovers from an injury, as well as Isaac Assenso who continues to recover from an injury he picked up whilst on loan at Guiseley.
