Farsley’s 16 game unbeaten run will be put to the ultimate test on Saturday as they head to Evo-Stik Division One North promotion rivals Curzon Ashton.

It will be third versus second as the visitors look to not only stay above Curzon but widen the gap between the clubs.

Farsley have played five games more at this stage but a win would take them four points clear of their hosts and dent their title ambitions.

Farsley boss Neil Parsley has no injury concerns and his squad will be high on confidence.

They have won 13 of the 16 games in which they have been unbeaten and won last weekend at Bamber Bridge, knocking the Preston-based outfit out of the play-off places.

Parsley said: “To get the three points against a side just a couple of places below us was a superb effort. It was a great win against a decent side.

"We have had three games against them this season - two in the league and one in the League Cup, and they were all close. We drew one and won the others 1-0, so they were tight.

“But this will be another tough game because Curzon Ashton are perceived as the favourites to win the league.

"It will be difficult but our defence has been magnificent recently and we always have goals in us.”
