Preview: Farsley Celtic hope to continue ‘great escape’ from relegation against Kidderminster

Farsley Celtic welcome Kidderminster Harriers to the Citadel on Saturday, looking to build on the four points picked up in the last two outings.

The Celts picked up a point last time out against Peterborough Sports thanks to a dramatic late leveller from Frank Mulhern, a result that lifted Russ Wilcox’s side out of the drop zone.

Farsley sit just one point above the danger zone, with a game in hand on 21st-place Leamington, so a result against Kidderminster would be vital in the fight to avoid relegation.

Whilst Wilcox’s men were just minutes away from a first defeat at home since November 22, Mulhern’s last-gasp strike made it 11 home games without defeat.

The Celt Army can also take confidence from the fact they have tasted success against this weekend’s opponents, defeating Kidderminster 2-0 at Aggborough back in October.

The Harriers head to the Citadel on the back of a run in which they have struggled to get across the winning line, drawing five of their last six.

In fact, Russ Penn’s side last tasted victory on February 11, a run of nine games without a win.

Speaking after last weekend’s draw with Peterborough, Kian Scales said: “It’s massive, the home form, and our form in general recently has been very good.

“To keep getting points when we haven’t played brilliantly is massive, and if we keep doing that until the end of the season, I’m sure we’ll be where we want to be come the final game.”


Bobby Johnson will miss out after picking up a hamstring injury in last week’s victory over Darlington.
