Brighouse Town will head to Farsley Celtic’s Throstle Nest ground on East Monday (3.0) in good heart after a 3-1 home win over Kendal Town yesterday.

Manager Paul Quinn praised his players for an “assured and professional performance” against the Cumbrians.

It was only the Hove Edge side’s second victory in their last 10 games and they are 16th in Division One North of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier, below Kendal on goal difference.

It was stalemate until six minutes before half time when a Ryan Hall header from a cross gave Town the lead.

However, Jack Kelleher scored a spectacular equaliser two minutes later.

A 30-yarder from Leon Henry restored Brighouse’s lead eight minutes after the break and an Isaac Baldwin penalty with 15 minutes left ensured a ninth home win of the season in the league.

Farsley Celtic crashed 5-1 at third-placed Northwich Victoria on Saturday but are ninth in the table and have an impressive home record this season.
