The key news heading into this Evo-Stik Division 1 North match is that Lancaster City’s manager Darren Peacock and his assistant Trevor Sinclair have both left the club by mutual consent. Lancaster currently lie 15th in the table, although they haven’t won in their last five league games.

Farsley Celtic are 20th, yet earned their first league win against Ossett Town last Tuesday. Long term absentees Ryan Serrant and Leon Osborne remain on the sidelines, while Neil Parsley has many options up front with the recent loan additions of Paul Walker and Jon Lewis from Bradford Park Avenue and Bradford City respectively. However Sam Robinson has returned to Mossley.
