The curtain may have closed on Brighouse Town’s promotion hopes but they still plan to finish the season on a high.

Town still have two games to go with Tadcaster Albion away on Saturday (3.00) and on Tuesday at home to Hall Road Rangers, and manager Paul Quinn still wants six points.

“We may have missed out on promotion but we still want to finish second,” he said. “We have worked hard to get to where we are and we don’t want to give that position away at this late stage.

“It has been a tremendous season for Brighouse with definitely more highs than lows and it has helped raise the profile of the club.

“I met with Chris (Lister) and Ray (McLaughlin) on Monday evening and we had a chat about the way things are going, and we all said that interest in the club has rocketed.

“This season has been an outstanding achieveent and it is just a shame that we came up against Scarborough.

“With regards to an outside chance of going up due to other clubs not wanting to make the step up, we certainly haven’t heard anything.

“There is a possibility but it is a long shot. I know former Football League club Darlington have applied to take an Evo Stik League place.

“It is highly unlikely but we will see how it pans out.”
