Words Alex Birch | Pictures VariousENDING our February road trip with a short hop over the Pennines to face relegation-threatened Farsley Celtic.While the Magpies were battling for a point at Brackley last weekend, the Celts were securing a last eight spot in the FA Trophy before extending their unbeaten run with an impressive 2-1 win at Scarborough Athletic on Tuesday evening.
A testing place to visit, especially with Farsley riding high on the back of their FA Trophy exploits. However, our away record has been excellent over the last couple of months and we want that to continue as we reach the business end of the season  Andy Preece

Jack Sampson put the Magpies in front early, before a stunning Frank Mulhern free kick and Carlton Ubaezuonu’s far post header had the visitors in front at the break.Three goals in eight second half minutes then put Andy Preece’s men back in command – a Connor Hall spot kick, Sampson overhead and Harvey Smith header.A late Scott Leather red card and a second for Ubaezuonu couldn’t rob the home side of victory in front of 879 fans.Hope + Glory Away Kit
