FARSLEY AFC are seeking to bolster their Evo-Stik First Division North play-off charge at top-five rivals Spennymoor this evening.

Neil Parsley’s side make the trip to the north east in good heart after three successive wins, the latest coming in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Warrington at Throstle Nest.

Gibraltar international Adam Priestley was the match-winner for the second successive game for eighth-placed Farsley, unbeaten in their past five outings.

Priestley netted the winner in the previous game, a 2-1 derby success over Ossett Town and also struck in the eye-catching 3-2 triumph over divisional heavyweights Darlington 1883, with the striker hunting his fourth game in consecutive matches.

Elsewhere, Ossett Town can do Farsley a considerable favour by beating fifth-placed Bamber Bridge at Ingfield.

In the Premier Division, Frickley face a daunting trek to second-placed Ashton United.

FC Halifax visit Aldershot in the Conference.

Big nights beckon for relegation-threatened duo Liversedge and Nostell MW in the NCEL Premier Division.

Sedge are reeling after a seven-match losing streak, with 2015 so far proving a horror year for the Clayborn outfit.

The fifth-from-bottom strugglers welcome Athersley Rec, desperate to avoid a fifth consecutive home defeat.

Paul Lines’ Nostell, who beat Sedge recently, are at least in better fettle, having beaten Albion Sports at the weekend.

Third-from-bottom Nostell, two points behind Sedge, but with a game in hand, entertain Handsworth Parramore.

Basement boys Glasshoughton, who have lost all seven league games so far in 2015, host Staveley, while Garforth visit Bridlington.

In Division One, leaders AFC Emley welcome rock-bottom Grimsby Borough and Hemsworth and Eccleshill visit Worsbrough Bridge and Clipstone. Yorkshire Amateur host Lincoln Moorlands.

Leesley’s happy to stay put at Harrogate Town
