Farsley Celtic are back in action at the Citadel this weekend when they host Peterborough Sports on Saturday afternoon.

The Celts will be hoping for a bumper crowd to get behind them, as Saturday is Non-League Day due to there being no Premier League or Championship games due to the international break.

This means Premier League and Championship season ticket holders pay just concession prices, priced at £9. Simply show your valid 2022/23 season ticket at the turnstiles to receive discounted entry.

Peterborough visit the Citadel in fine form following a recent resurgence, having won three and drawn one of their last four.

The Sports recorded impressive back-to-back victories earlier last week, defeating high-flying Chester 1-0 on the road, before defeating Leamington 3-0 at the weekend.

They will be visiting a Farsley side who will be looking to build on Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Darlington, a result which means the Celts are now only adrift of safety on goal difference.

This is the second of four-straight games at the Citadel, an important period for Russ Wilcox’s side who are now unbeaten in their last 10 at home.

Looking ahead to Saturday, Chris Atkinson said: “It’s massive, if we can perform like that in these next four or five games at home, I think we’ll be sound.

“Teams don’t like coming here, it’s a bumpy pitch, we play the pitch very well when we play like that, and we just need to keep that energy up, that intensity and I think we’ll be fine.”


Nat Wallace has returned to Scunthorpe United after suffering a broken toe whilst playing for their youth team last week.

Bobby Johnson is a doubt after being forced off through injury in our victory over Darlington, however, new loan signing Connor Dixon will be available for selection.
