Preview: Farsley Celtic vs Nantwich Town (09/02/19)

By Thomas Ritchie

It’s 3rd vs 4th in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division as Farsley Celtic welcome Nantwich Town to Throstle Nest on Saturday.

When the sides met at the Weaver Stadium back in October Nantwich took all three points in a 2-1 victory, however since that game the Celts have suffered just one defeat in the league.

Farsley Celtic will be hoping to continue their promotion push and their fine form of late which has seen just one defeat in their last nine games.

That defeat came to fellow promotion contenders South Shields (1-0), whilst Adam Lakeland’s side have beaten Marine (2-1), Whitby Town (3-1), Witton Albion (3-2), Hednesford Town (1-0), Scarborough Athletic (3-1) and Stafford Rangers (5-0). Draws have come against Warrington Town (3-3) and Grantham Town (1-1).

On the injury front, Jimmy Spencer is expected to return after missing Farsley’s Integro League Cup win over Stafford, whilst Jack Dyche remains a doubt.

Nantwich Town, after sitting top for long spells this season, now sit fourth in the league, but are still firmly in title contention.

Dave Cooke’s side are unbeaten in their last three games following a New Year’s Day defeat to local rivals Witton Albion (1-0).

Since that loss, Nantwich have drawn with Gainsborough Trinity (0-0) and defeated Crewe Alexandra (2-1) and Matlock Town (1-0).

They have no apparent injury concerns.

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 accompanied U16s. Come on down and cheer on the Celts in this huge game!
