Farsley boss Neil Parsley is not paying too much attention to the Evo-Stik League Division One North table ahead of Saturday's home clash with struggling Goole AFC.

His men reclaimed fifth spot in the play-off zone with last Saturday’s 4-2 victory at promotion rivals Cammell Laird but Parsley said: “League tables don’t matter until May.

““We played well last week and Granty (Gareth Grant) won’t get an easier hat-trick. The first and third were both down to defensive errors but he capitalised on them.

"You have to be in the positions to make the most of things and he was - his second goal was a well taken one.

"The win also kept our unbeaten run going – it’s nine games now in league and League Cup – but we know we still have a lot to do to get into the play-offs because of the number of games we have already played.”

Goole are second from bottom but their manager, Wayne Benn, knows Throstle Nest well.

Benn began his career with Bradford City and went on to captain Park Avenue. The former Guiseley assistant manager was brought in by Goole mid-season to try to keep them up.

Parsley has club captain Chris Walton back from a two-game ban and Dave Stead and Simeon Bambrook, who both missed last weekend due to work commitments, are available again. Dave Briggs (hernia) is the only long-term absentee.
