Farsley are chasing the play-offs so we know it’s going to be a difficult game at their place on Saturday.

We might have won there on the first day of the season but they comprehensively beat us in the second half of the league cup game last month.

We’ve been in the hunt for the promotion in the past and teams have done their upmost to take points off us.

Now we’re on the other side.

Also, from my point of view, even though it might look to some like there’s not that much to play for I don’t like losing any game.

Heading back to Yorkshire confidence is high away from home after our victory at Brighouse Town on Saturday.

They weren’t a bad side.

The pitch was awful but it was same for both sides.

In the first half we did the things we’d been doing on our recent good run and reaped the rewards.

We had a bad 15-minute spell at the start of the second half when to be fair they put us under pressure and a got a goal.

But we dug in and got a bit of luck with the penalty and then wrapped it up.

It was a good away performance all in all.

After the trip to Farlsey we head to struggling Prescot Cables on Tuesday.

We never pay any attention to their league position because it’s not one of the nicer grounds to visit and they’re always a physical side, like many from Merseyside.

As much as we’re doing well on the road it’ll be nice to get back to Giant Axe at the start of April after three straight away games.

Hopefully by that point we’ll be looking at securing a place in the top 10.
