The Pitmen make a quick return to action today, Bank Holiday Monday, as we make the journey north to Yorkshire in order to take on Farsley Celtic.
This will be just our third ever meeting with Farsley, and perhaps a game that we weren’t expecting to face with our planned move south, however we do remain unbeaten in our previous two fixtures with us securing maximum points both home and away last season.
Our hosts come into the fixture fresh, having not had a game on Saturday due to their planned opposition – Hyde – having to enter the FA Cup at an earlier stage. Celtic have made an impressive start to the season though, securing two victories from their opening two fixtures – including an impressive 4-1 rout of South Shields in their last home game.
After suffering a disappointing 2-1 defeat against Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday Pitmen manager Rob Smith will be looking for a response from his team. He will be without midfielder Reece King – who sits out the second game of a three-match ban, and Tom Hill (holiday). Meanwhile Jermain Hollis is now available for selection again after serving his ban and Jed Davies will be pushing for a place in the starting XI after playing 30 minutes on Saturday.
The game kicks off at 3pm and we’d like to thank those Hednesford supporters who are giving up their Bank Holiday in order to make the long journey to Yorkshire when a derby fixture is usually the flavour of these afternoons.
