It’s 15th vs. 6th as Brighouse Town take on Farsley AFC on Boxing Day. Farsley look to continue their 6 game unbeaten run as they push towards the playoffs and promotion. New signing Andy Welsh will look to continue his form after a man of the match display as Farsley defeated Droylsden 2-1 last Saturday. However Brighouse have lost five games in a row, including a heavy 4-1 defeat to local rivals Harrogate Railway last weekend. A win for Brighouse could lift them up to 12th though as a tight mid-table leaves just two points between 12th and 16th midway through the season. Meanwhile a win for Farsley could lift them into the playoffs, which would be a vital position to be in with a tricky fixture backlog to follow later in the season.
