Take it one game at a time and get the three points.

That is the message Brighouse Town manager Paul Quinn is giving his squad as they edge closer and closer towards possible promotion.

Quinn said: “We are just going to concentrate on what we are doing and pick up the points. There is still a long way to go but confidence is high, and fingers crossed we maintain what we are doing.

“Although we came away 3-1 winners at home to Armthorpe we had to grind out the win and that is what it is all about at this point in the season. I am just hoping the game went ahead at the third attempt with Heanor Town on Wednesday night. A lot of games were cancelled (on Tuesday) due to the fog and we don’t want to fall foul of that. Mid-week games are always difficult away. We are glad to have Ernest Boafo back for the game.”

A recognised centre-back Ben Charlesworth did a sterling job up front for Town against Armthorpe with leading goalscorer Tom Matthews suspended and Quinn added: “It is not his first time in that position.

“With Heanor and away at Staveley Miners Welfare on Saturday we have two tough games coming up but by hook or by crook we will have to come away with three points from each.”

Scarborough Athletic, ahead of last night’s game at Heanor, were two points ahead of Town at the top.
