A victory in midweek lifted Farsley Celtic back up to 15th but the Blue Square North table is so tight that a victory for Saturday's visitors Solihull Moors would see the Midlands outfit leapfrog their hosts.

Celts boss Neil Parsley is aware of the significance of the game, and the one the following Saturday. The Farsley manager is also keeping his eye on a number of worrying injuries.

“This game, like the ones against Northwich Victoria and Harrogate Town, is against a team in and around us in the table,” said Parsley.

“Solihull this weekend and Gloucester City next are very important games for us. It's imperative that we pick points up from this run of games as we need as many as possible to give us a cushion for when we come up against the sides going all out for promotion.”

At such a crucial time, the last thing Parsley wanted to see was a growing injury list but that is what he is faced with.

Striker Gareth Grant missed the midweek win over Harrogate Town with a rib injury, and others could miss the visit of Solihull.

Parsley said: “Granty picked up the injury against Fleetwood but managed to play against Northwich before he began to struggle.

"After Tuesday, we have Liam Shepherd nursing a hamstring injury, Dave Pickering picked up a 'dead leg' and Mark Jackson took a knock on his ankle.

“On top of that, we have Simeon Bambrook just coming back from a nasty bout of flu - he is only just getting over the effects of it.

"That is why he didn’t play against Northwich but he did come on from the bench against Harrogate.

“It is only to be expected after the three tough games we have had in quick succession since the weather relented. I would say that Shep’s hamstring is the worst of the injuries so we will have to look after him.”
