Farsley will be looking to strengthen their push for the promotion play-offs in Evo-Stik Division One North on Saturday when they visit Salford City.

Neil Parsley’s men lost ground last week when they lost 3-2 at rivals Curzon Ashton but they are still stinging from that defeat and have a desire to get it out of their system.

Beating 13th-placed Salford could even take Farsley back into the top five.

In the Baris Northern Counties East League Premier Division, second-placed Brighouse Town could go top if they win at third from bottom Arnold Town but they would have to rely on leaders Scarborough Athletic losing at home.

Brighouse trail the Seadogs by just two points, having played the same number of games, but third- placed Bridlington Town have an edge as they have played fewer games than the top two.

Sixth-placed Thackley have home advantage over Heanor Town and will be in good spirits following a 3-2 win in the derby against mid-table Liversedge on Tuesday.

Sedge are also at home but face the task of having to put in a good performance against fourth-placed Worksop Parramore if they are to bounce back from their defeat at Dennyfield.

Albion Sports are flying high in Division One but have to sit this weekend out as they should have had a home fixture but Bradford Park Avenue have first call on Horsfall Stadium.

Eccleshill United’s dramatic 4-3 win over Teversal - the Eagles’ third maximum on the trot - in midweek lifted them above Bottesford Town ahead of Saturday's trip to the Scunthorpe-based outfit.

In the North West Counties League's top tier, Silsden host ninth-placed Congleton Town.

The Cobbydalers suffered a defeat at fellow struggler St Helens Town last weekend so it will be yet another tough test for them as they face a long end-of-season run-in with nothing to play for.
