“I doubt we will play as bad as Saturday again, and so that gives me great optimism going into Tuesday night”
The two sides met at Throstle Nest back in September and had to settle for a share of the spoils, as Lewis Turner’s second-half goal cancelled out Alex Byrne’s effort.
Third place Farsley Celtic can close the gap to league leaders Warrington Town should they get something from their visit to the Northolme.
The Celts have won their last three games in all competitions heading into this game, defeating Scarborough Athletic (3-1), Stafford Rangers (5-0) and Nantwich Town (2-1).
Jack Dyche is a doubt as he continues to return from injury, however other than that Farsley Manager Adam Lakeland should have a full squad to select from.
Ahead of the trip to Lincolnshire, Adam Lakeland said: “It’s another tough game, Gainsborough are a good side and they’re just outside the playoffs.
“They’re having a bit of a bad run at the minute with a few not so clever results, but we still expect another difficult challenge.
“I doubt we will play as bad as Saturday again, and so that gives me great optimism going into Tuesday night.”
The Celts will encounter some familiar faces at Gainsborough in former manager Lee Sinnott and ex-Celtic player Damien Reeves, who both now ply their trade with Trinity.
Gainsborough are winless in their last three games, but still sit on the cusp of the playoffs in sixth.
That run has seen Lee Sinnott’s side draw with Stafford Rangers (1-1), and lose to Warrington Town (4-1) and Buxton (1-0).
Trinity will be without the services of Ben Gordon who serves the second game of a three-match suspension, but they have no apparent injury concerns.
Tuesday’s game takes place at the Northolme, postcode DN21 2QW. Kick off is 7.45pm and admission prices are £12 adults, £8 concessions and £4 U16s.
The Celts are back in action at Throstle Nest on Saturday 23rd February when Witton Albion are the visitors.
