As Brighouse Town’s busy schedule carries on, with hopefully another victory last night at Heanor Town, they will be looking for revenge away against Albion Sports this Saturday (3.00).

Town lost at home to the Bradford outfit in the opening stages of the season 5-4, and manager Paul Quinn is looking to right the wrongs in this local derby.

“Yes of course we would like to get one over on them,” said Quinn.

“We are a lot stronger than when we last played them and we are gaining momentum, so yes revenge is on the agenda.”

Brighouse will be missing Ben Small, and he didn’t figure in the squad going to Heanor. Small took a knock to the head in their 2-0 victory over lowly Nostell Miners Welfare on Saturday and had to go to hospital.

Quinn continued: “Thankfully the injury is not has bad as we first thought and he came away with six stitches in his head.

“Fortunately it is not on a part of his head that he will use too much, so we can still count on him to head the ball.

“It should be around seven to 10 days and he will be available.

“In the meantime we have called upon the services of centre-back Adam Wilson and James Sutcliffe from the development squad.

“We will always look at them first but will also keep our options open for other players.

“I would have liked a more fluent performance and we missed a lot of chances but we got the right result in the end. “We do need to tweak things.

“The game should have been dead and buried a lot earlier but credit to Nostell they made things difficult for us.

“On the reverse, striker Danny Naidole, one of the best dead ball exponents for free kicks at our level and above, has been approached by Skrill North Bradford Park Avenue. He is still a Brighouse Town player until we hear otherwise.”

After Saturday’s game at Albion Sports, of which Town would love to see as supporters many as possible get to Sticker Lane and cheer them on, they will then host North Lincolnshire side Winterton Rangers on Tuesday (7.45pm).

Albion Sports are currently sitting six places below Brighouse in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division and Tuesday’s opponents Winterton are fifth from bottom.
