After helping end Farsley Celtic’s long winless league run that spanning from early October, returning striker Adam Priestley insists his side must now kick on and rekindle their strong early-season form.

The Celts are still clinging on to the final Evo-Stik Premier Division play-off place despite their recent struggles, with Priestley admitting: “We’ve started well and set our standard and it’s now up to us to continue that.”

The opportunity to do so could not be more perfect, as they welcome rock-bottom Sutton Coldfield Town to Throstle Nest tomorrow who only have one away win all season.

Evo-Stik North side Ossett Town meanwhile go into tomorrow’s game on the back of an unexpected 3-0 defeat at the hands of Skelmersdale United, ending their six-game unbeaten league run. They host Kendal Town looking for a return to winning ways as their games in hand continue to fizzle out.

Tadcaster Albion meanwhile face a potential six-pointer against Trafford with the chance to climb above their opponents and Ossett Town, while strugglers Ossett Albion face Clitheroe and Brighouse Town travel to Mossley.

Free-scoring Frickley Athletic also have the chance to close in on the Evo-Stik South automatic promotion spots, heading to Lincoln United after scoring 13 goals in three games without reply.

A hat-trick of loan signings in just two days has left Harrogate Town with yet more depth ahead of tonight’s FA Trophy third round qualifying match at Darlington.

Bradford City’s Lachlan Barr and Ellis Hudson along with Guiseley’s Frank Mulhern are now amongst their ranks as they take on a Darlington side who have failed to find the net in five of their last nine home games.

Bradford Park Avenue meanwhile head into tomorrow’s FA Trophy tie fresh from what manager Mark Bower described as their “most complete performance of the season” in a 2-0 National League North victory over Brackley.

With their Evo-Stik Premier opponents Stourbridge sat 23-league places below them, confidence will be high that Avenue can get the victory they need to make it to the first round proper.
