BRADFORD Park Avenue will be looking for back-to-back wins tonight, while it will back to earth for Guiseley as both sides have second-round away ties in the West Riding County Cup.

Avenue thrashed third-placed Blyth Spartans 4-1 in Vanarama National League North on Saturday, while a day later the Lions took Sky Bet League Two high-fliers Accrington Stanley to a replay in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Mark Bower’s side head to Toolstation Northern Counties East League Division One outfit Selby Town, while Paul Cox’s Lions make the short trip to Garforth Town.

Both managers will make changes for the games but not many as, under the competition rules, only those who have played league games this season can be involved and also because both clubs have long injury lists.

Bower said: “We had a full bench on Saturday but we were hoping that most of them wouldn’t be needed because only two of them were fully fit.

“We also had players in the starting 11 that weren’t 100 per cent, but they all put in excellent performances and we got the win against a very good side.

"I’m not sure what people think when they look at us - yes we have a bigger playing budget than last season but it’s not that big in terms of the division we’re in.

“Our budget is a bottom-eight one - we’re no Salford City, Blyth, Harrogate or any of the other full-time clubs in National North, but we are competing with these teams, and that’s down to the players and the professional way they conduct themselves.

“We’ve got a superb group of players here and we get the best possible response from them in training and in the games.”

Selby will be looking for a response after a 3-1 home defeat to East Yorkshire Carnegie at the weekend. In their previous league game, the Robins had won 2-0 at Campion.

Guiseley’s last competitive match against Garforth Town was in an FA Cup tie, but that was nine years ago, although the sides have met in a pre-season friendly since then.

As the Miners are in the NCEL Premier Division, one step above Selby, there are five divisions between them and the Lions.

Garforth had a free weekend but lost their previous two games, both at home, against Barton Town in the league and Knaresborough Town in the FA Vase (after extra-time).

Paul Cox’s men – who now know they will travel to one of the manager’s former clubs in Mansfield Town if they can beat Accrington in a replay - will be expected to progress, even though they too have several players on the treatment table.

In last night’s derby, Farsley Celtic went through to the quarter-finals at the expense of Evo-Stik League rivals Brighouse Town.

The Division One North outfit had home advantage but the Celts, who won promotion to the Premier Division last season and made it a double celebration by lifting the County Cup, scored twice in the second half.

Adam Porritt opened the scoring and Ben Atkinson made it 2-0 in the 72nd minute.

Atkinson is one of four former Town players who made the switch to Throstle Nest at the end of the last campaign.

Another of them, Jimmy Pollard, was sent off for a second bookable offence but Farsley still closed out the result, despite the dismissal coming between the goals.
