Football - Brighouse Town v New Mills. Tyrone Gay for Brighouse.

Brighouse Town picked up a point from a satisfactory 1-1 draw away to Harrogate Railway Athletic yesterday.

Town took the lead after eight minutes when a Daniel Naidole free kick was met by a superb diving header from Tyrone Gay.

However, Luke Dean equalised six minutes before half time for Railway, who remain 15th in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division One North table, one place above Brighouse.

Town, who have slipped down the league recently, look to have a good winning opportunity at home to lowly Ossett Alion on Tuesday.

They won 2-1 at Albion in mid-August and this week’s visitors are below them in the table and have played two games more.
