Farsley Celtic aim to continue unbeaten run at Banbury United

By Thomas Ritchie

Farsley Celtic will be looking to continue their improved recent form on Saturday, as Russ Wilcox’s side make the long trip to Banbury United.

The Celts are unbeaten in six games in February, the longest undefeated run since December 2020, and four of those games have been on the road.

Farsley head into this weekend following back-to-back goalless draws, against Chorley and Kettering Town, so will be pleased to welcome back top scorer Frank Mulhern for the trip to Oxfordshire.

The Puritans, who sit 12th in the first season at this level, have won just one of their last seven outings in the National League North, and have lost their last four in all competitions.

Looking ahead to the fixture, Russ Wilcox said: “It’s been a real tough period, massive credit’s got to go to the group.

“We’re bodies down, but the lads are fighting and scrapping for each other and showing great togetherness, and if we keep doing that until the end of the season, I’m sure we’ll be fine.

“Banbury will be a tough game, they give us a tough game at home, which we managed to win, but they had a lot of the ball, they play a different way, and they are expansive.

“We’ve got to keep grafting and working, and hopefully have a little bit more quality and be a little bit more creative, but I can’t ask any more of the group at the moment.”

TEAM NEWS

Frank Mulhern is available for selection as he returns from a four-game suspension.

Dave Syers is nearing a return from injury, whilst the Celts will be hoping that Bobby Johnson has recovered from illness.
