Men's First Team
National League North Tue 4 April The Citadel
Farsley Celtic
  • Williams (11')
  • Mulhern (58')
Brackley Town
  • Murombedzi (45+1')

It’s another massive game at the Citadel on Tuesday evening, as the Celts host Brackley Town.

Russ Wilcox’s side will be looking to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat to Kidderminster Harriers, a first loss at home for 130 days.

It was a result that left the Celts one point above the drop zone, but a win over Brackley would send Farsley four points clear of 21st-place Leamington.

The Celts welcome a side in Brackley whose promotion push has stalled in recent weeks, although they remain firmly in the playoff positions.

The Northamptonshire outfit have won just one of their last nine, and they are without a win in their last six, their last success coming against Southport on March 4.

Roger Johnson’s men have struggled on the road, in particular, this season and, despite sitting fourth in the league, they have just the 14th-best record away from home.

Looking ahead to Tuesday’s game, Russ Wilcox said: “We just do what we’ve done, we rest up, we stay together, that’s our first defeat at home I think for 12 games.

“That’s a magnificent record to say where we are in the league as well, fifth bottom in the league, to go that long since November, and the first defeat’s against a full-time team as well.

“We get ready for Tuesday, we keep our spirits high because the second-half performance gives us massive hope going towards Tuesday.”


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

On-loan midfielder Connor Dixon has also now been ruled out for the season following an injury picked up prior to his signing for the Celts.

In more positive news, Isaac Assenso is nearing a return from an injury picked up in his loan stint at Guiseley.
