FARSLEY Celtic need a home victory on Saturday to retain top spot in Division One North of the Evo-Stik League ahead of what could be a defining Easter weekend.

The Celts are just one point clear at the summit as they host lowly Radcliffe Borough, while Lancaster Cty, their only rivals for the title, host second-from-bottom Goole AFC.

Both home teams are strong favourites to win, but Farsley and Lancaster are feeling the pressure and have had some unexpected results.

The Celts are also struggling with injuries and suspensions.

Leading scorer James Walshaw picked up a third red card of the season recently, is serving a five-match ban and won't return until the last game of the season.

Striker turned centre back Aiden Savory is also suspended, but former Avenue and Stockport County forward Lamin Colley could return from injury.

With only four league games remaining, Brighouse Town look to have missed out on the chance of forcing their way into the play-offs, being six points off the top five with just 12 to play for.

However, they are unbeaten in their last nine games and on the verge of the 60-point mark, and a win at home over 11th-placed Bamber Bridge would keep the pressure on the sides above them.

There is just one game involving a local club in the top tier of the Toolstation Northern Counties East League as Thackley and Albion Sports have a free weekend.

Liversedge are at second-placed Pickering Town.

Sedge gave leaders Cleethorpes Town a tough time before the title favourites won 4-2 at Clayborn last Saturday, but they then lost 1-0 on Tuesday at home to second-from-bottom Parkgate.

Both of the local representatives in Division One have missed out on the play-offs but still have three games to play as they look to end the campaign on a positive note.

Eighth-placed Campion host a Brigg Town side five places below them and 14 points worse off.

Eccleshill United’s six-game unbeaten run was ended last weekend with a 1-0 home defeat to Selby Town.

The Eagles travel to Glasshoughton Welfare, looking to maintain the three-point cushion they have on their 12th placed hosts.

Silsden face a quick turnaround in the Hallmark Security League as they welcome second-from-bottom Eccleshall after a 4-2 win at the Lancashire outfit on Wednesday.

That win saw the Cobbydalers reach the 50-point mark for the season, and Danny Forrest’s side will be looking for another victory against their relegation-threatened visitors.
