BRIGHOUSE Town’s upbeat manager Paul Quinn is expecting a tough game at relegated Retford United on Saturday, but says his side goes to north Nottinghamshire full of confidence.

United came down from the Evostik League and Town’s manager says they will have ambitions of their own to be thereabouts and try to bounce straight back.

“We will be going all out for three points on the back of another good performance after last week at Maltby and not scratching around for a point,” said Quinn.

“We are getting stronger each week and the win last Saturday has set us nicely for a game that will be a yardstick to where we are at.

“It’s a case of raising the level for competing in this league.”

Left back Scott Driscoll missed last Saturday’s trip to Malby but should be fit for selection this week and despite the manager reporting a few players with colds, he reckons it won’t keep them out on Saturday.

Quinn reiterated that he is not finished yet on the signing front but has no new names to add to the squad this week, although by the weekend he feels there could be some news.

He has no intention to add to his coaching staff - more than happy with the contributions Barry Thomas and Mark Booth are putting in since he inherited them from short term incumbent Mick Couzens.

“The players respect them and they have been fantastic for me and I have no need to go looking for an assistant which I thought may have had to do,” said Quinn.
