Farsley Celtic notched a comfortable three points thanks to a 3-1 win against basement club Bishop’s Stortford at The Citadel.

Goals from Noah Wadsworth, Chris Atkinson and Ben Atkinson were enough to give the Celts the win, while the visitors notched an injury time consolation goal.

The Celts started the brighter of the two teams, Rudy Misambo heading narrowly wide early on. It wasn’t long before Noah Wadsworth gave the Celts the lead with a fine strike into the bottom corner.

Soon after Clayton Donaldson came close with a header which was tipped over the bar by the visiting keeper.

re a superb low Chris Atkinson strike from what must have been 35 yards hit the bottom corner to put the Celts 2-0 up just before half time.

The second half was a quieter and scrappy affair, but Farsley slowly got on top and Ben Atkinson finished a fine move involving Donaldson and Coulson to make it 3-0.

Leban saved one on one for Farsley but The Celts could have added more to the scoreline, most notably through Wadsworth and Allan, who both hit the woodwork.

In injury time the Celts gave the ball away in midfield and the visitors notched a consolation goal.

Next week we travel to top of the table Tamworth.
