National League North Tue 18 April The Citadel
Farsley Celtic
Blyth Spartans

The Celts face a crunch clash in the fight to avoid relegation on Easter Monday, as Blyth Spartans make the trip to the Citadel.

It could be a pivotal day at the bottom of the National League North, with 20th-place Farsley hosting 22nd-place Blyth, whilst 19th-place Kettering Town hosts 21st-place Leamington.

It’s a day made bigger by a week of mixed fortunes for Russ Wilcox’s side. Tuesday saw Farsley take advantage of their game in hand by defeating Brackley Town 2-1, before Friday saw a 4-0 reversal at the hands of Boston United.

The visiting Spartans head into Monday on the back of a run of three games without a loss, keeping three consecutive clean sheets during that run.

An impressive 3-0 victory over league leaders AFC Fylde was followed up by back-to-back goalless draws with Banbury United and Darlington.

Looking ahead to the game, Russ Wilcox said: “We’re in a lot better position than we were this time last season, when only one went down and we were bottom.

“We’ve got our heads above the water at the moment, it’s down to us and it’s in our hands.

“We spoke with six to go saying that we know every game is massive from here on in, but we just play our normal game.

“Our home form’s really good, so that stands us in good stead for Monday.”


Bobby Johnson and Luke Parkin have both been ruled out for the remainder of the season through injury.

Isaac Assenso continues to near a comeback from an injury sustained whilst on loan at Guiseley.
