Farsley AFC can cope with mass suspensions, says Neil Parsley

Neil Parsley is hopeful that Farsley AFC can cope when the four suspensions come into effort.
Adam Priestley begins a three match ban on Tuesday for his red card in the West Riding County Cup game at Goole, but he will be replaced by Aiden Savory who has recovered from a hamstring problem.
Parsley then has to contend with the bans for Ryan Serrant, centre-back Matt Dempsey and Simeon Bambrook after their sending-offs in the Northwich Victoria clash which descended into chaos.
Serrant faces missing one match, while Dempsey and Bambrook are set to miss three.
The referee has been reported following an incident in the tunnel at half-time, but Parsley has to pick up the pieces and has clarified the James Riley situation.
Riley has not featured since the FA Trophy defeat at Kendal Town on October 5th.
“We have brought Ross Daly in, but really if the truth was known that because of Robbie O’Brien’s ankle injury on Saturday,” he said.
“The centre-back situation is more of a problem to me. James has a problem with a shoulder, it’s been ongoing and its because of wear and tear in his shoulder.
“Him and his wife had a baby in the summer and they put the operation off. But, the injury has got worse and he’s not confident with it. He felt his performances were suffering because he didn’t have confidence in his shoulder.
“Having said that, I’ve spoken to Rilo and he says he has been training.
“I’ve still got seven days and the one problem is centre-back and Rilo could play.
“I’m not ruling out bringing anyone in though.”
Anthony Lloyd is another player who has vanished from Farsley’s side, but the former Guiseley right-back remains with the club.
Lloyd hasn’t played for Farsley since early September and Parsley said: “Lloydy is having a bit of time out.
“He’s had a month out as a little morale booster for his wife as he helping her out with a few man jobs.
“He is still registered with us so he could be back.”
