Tom Platt is targeting three points against Farsley Celtic... but he’s hoping the contest will be a little less eventful than the last time the two sides met.

The Pilgrims left the Citadel with a win in November, but victory came at a cost as Martyn Woolford and Demeaco Duhaney both collected red cards.

Woolford was dismissed for a combative challenge, Duhaney going at the death, collecting a second booking for kicking the ball away, in a game of three penalties.

“Hopefully it’s not as eventful this time,” said midfielder Platt.

“We had those red cards, but three points is more important. Another three points and everyone on the pitch will be ideal.”

Manager Craig Elliott echoed Platt’s words.

“These are the thngs we need in terms of the run-in,” he said.

“Injuries, suspensions - you don’t want those sort of things to go against you.

"Its important we keep our discipline. It was a tough game up there.”

Farsley still have outside hopes of reaching the play-offs and beat Blyth Spartans 2-0 at the weekend.

Kick off at York Street will be at 3pm.
