Farsley Celtic return to action this weekend, making the lengthy trip to Kidderminster, writes Thomas Ritchie.

The Celts find themselves towards the bottom of the league 10 games into the season, having recorded just one win so far, a 3-0 win away at Brackley Town.

But Russ Wilcox’s side have been close to earning that second win in recent times, being stung at the death against both Blyth Spartans and Spennymoor Town.

Despite Kidderminster sitting fifth in the division with the league’s second-best defensive record, Farsley can take confidence from their last meeting with the Harriers.

Strikes from Jimmy Spencer and Will Hayhurst saw the Worcestershire club defeated at the Citadel back in February, in what was Wilcox’s first three points in charge.

Russell Penn’s side enters this weekend on a six-game unbeaten run, and whilst Farsley were out of action at the weekend, Kidderminster were continuing their FA Cup adventure as they defeated Cheshunt 2-1.

Another win this weekend could see the Harriers climb to the top of the division should results go their way, whilst the Celt Army will be hoping to escape the relegation zone.

Andy Butler should return after missing our defeat to Boston United with a concussion.

Lewis Butroid continues to near a return to competitive action having returned to training two weeks ago.

Southport game re-arranged

The Celts will now host Southport at the Citadel on Saturday, 15 October.

The game will kick off at 3pm.

The fixture has been brought forward from March with both clubs having a free weekend, in Farsley’s case due to original opponent Chester’s progression in the Emirates FA Cup.

A new date for the Chester fixture will be announced in due course.

Tickets will be available to be bought online for the Southport game in the coming days.
