FARSLEY have been given the incentive of a home tie in the FA Trophy third round if they can overcome Barnet in tomorrow night's replay.

The Celts, who drew 1-1 at home to the Bees in the second round on Saturday, were paired at home to Barrow in today's lunchtime draw.

The Cumbrians, who top the National League table, thrashed FC United of Manchester 7-0 in the last round.

Farsley came from behind to take their visitors back to London thanks to a 53rd minute equaliser from Tyler Walton, who finished well after being set up by Will Hayhurst.

Simeon Akinola had put the National League visitors ahead in the opening ten minutes.

Celts boss Adam Lakeland was pleased with his side's effort and said: “I felt we grew into the game in the first half. We identified that set pieces and crosses were an area that we could ask questions of them today and credit to Will (Hayhurst) and Jordan (Richards) because nine out of ten of their deliveries were spot on.

“I thought the players executed the plan perfectly in the second half and I think we edged it, I think we were the better team. All in all, I can’t really be any prouder of the players, unless we’d have won it I guess.”

The match was significant for former Bantams midfielder David Syers as the Farsley favourite clocked up his 500th career appearance.

Brighouse Town put themselves in tenth place in Bet Victor Northern Premier League North West Division after a 2-0 home success over Runcorn Linnets.

Meanwhile, Steeton’s game at Bacup Borough was abandoned at half-time due to a waterlogged pitch.
