By Thomas Ritchie

Farsley Celtic will look to continue their excellent recent run as they welcome Grantham Town to Throstle Nest.

“We will have to be at our best if we are wanting to gain another three points” Paul Walker

Both sides reached the playoffs last season, with Ashton United prevailing against both, Farsley in the semi-final, and Grantham in the final.

Farsley Celtic are unbeaten in their last 14 league games, and have lost just one of their last 22 games in all competitions. That includes going unbeaten in their last five games, with a draw against Warrington Town (3-3), and victories over Marine (1-2), Whitby Town (3-1), Witton Albion (3-2), and Hednesford Town (1-0).

Adam Lakeland will be able to call upon the services of Jimmy Spencer who returns from suspension, whilst Will Hayhurst and Danny Ellis could return to action following injury.

Ahead of the game, Farsley forward Paul Walker said: “We are expecting another tough game, and we will have to be at our best if we are wanting to gain another three points.

“But it’s one we are looking forward to, and hopefully we’ll see a couple of the injured lads and Jimmy (Spencer) back, and we can keep our run going.”

Grantham Town currently sit 13th in the division after a mixed season so far, which included seven defeats in seven games throughout October.

Of late, the Gingerbreads have been inconsistent with three wins and two defeats in their last five games. Those wins were over Mickleover Sports (3-1), Gainsborough Trinity (3-2) and Basford United (2-1). The two defeats for Richard Thomas’ side have come to Stalybridge Celtic (1-0) and to Bamber Bridge (3-1) in their most recent game.

Grantham are expected to bring a fully fit squad to Throstle Nest.

Saturday’s game takes place at Throstle Nest, postcode LS28 5BE. Kick off is 3pm and admission prices are just 9 adults, £5 concessions and £1 U16s.

After this game, Farsley are back in action at home on Saturday 2nd February as North Ferriby United are the visitors.
