WARRINGTON Town travel to play-off rivals Farsley Celtic this afternoon with one goal in mind; winning.

Despite a six-match winless run, Town remain second in the Evo-Stik Premier Division but those behind them, including today’s opponents, have closed the gap in recent weeks.

It would take a heavy defeat for Yellows to be overtaken by Farsley today, but third-placed Ashton will sense an opportunity to leapfrog Town should they slip up again.

However, manager Paul Carden says there will be no conservative attitude from his players at Throstle’s Nest.

Both sides will be playing their fourth game of the week, but Carden says the tiredness is something they will just have to get on with.

“We never approach a game looking for a point,” he said.

“Our mindset is always to get the three points and the Farsley game will be no different.

“I know Adam Lakeland (Farsley manager) very well.

“He’s a good coach and he likes his teams to do the right things with the ball. It’s no coincidence that they are up there.

“As tired as they are, we’ll be equally tired.

“We didn’t get back from Whitby until gone 2 o’clock on Friday morning as the motorways were shut.

“It is a bit of a nightmare, but we have to get on with it.

“We want to continue from where we left off against Whitby because it was more like us.”
