Farsley Celtic entertain new boys Tamworth at The Citadel tomorrow (Saturday) as they bid to continue their strong start to the season.

This will be the fourth time out of the first five games this season that the new-look Celts have played against newly-promoted teams.

Farsley remain unbeaten after four games and are riding in sixth in the early season table. Three points against Tamworth at the Citadel on Saturday would put the seal on Farsley’s impressive start ahead of a tough run of games starting at Chester on Bank Holiday Monday.

Kings Lynn (home), Blyth Spartans (away) and Gloucester City (away) then follow.

How well the Celts perform in these contests will give us a much clearer idea of exactly where this new side stands, along with its new management team and playing style.

Tamworth will be difficult opposition as they are unbeaten on their travels this season and Farsley are yet to notch a win at The Citadel (with two draws), so an interesting contest awaits.

Celts head coach Clayton Donaldson will be hoping fellow striker Darren Stephenson. shakes off an injury sustained in last week’s 1-0 win of Bishop’s Stortford. And influential defender Tom Allan will serve the second of his three-match ban following his red card.

Donaldson said: “We play yet another promoted side so these games can be tricky and we have to be prepared for the unknown at times.

“After a good week of preparation I believe the players are more than up for it so it will hopefully be a successful day for us.”
