BRIGHOUSE Town manager Paul Quinn has called for more of the same from his players when they resume league action on Saturday, writes Charlotte Henbest.
After last week’s 5 - 0 thrashing, he was delighted with the way his side bounced back in the County Cup.
“I asked the boys for a response and they really bounced back and showed a lot of character, so I will be asking for more of the same on Saturday at home to Parkgate (3pm).
“We had a long chat about what went wrong and it was just a blip and there will certainly be no repeat.
“You don’t become a poor team overnight. The result against Pontefract has given us a real lift and now as a club we are looking forward to going to The Shay in December for the next round,” said Quinn
“It will be a great local derby and a terrific occasion for everyone involved,
“We know that it will be tough on Saturday but we will be looking for another good performance.”
He is hoping Luke Gibson and Danny Hull will be available for Saturday.
Quinn now has strength in depth. Left-side midfielder Gibson joins Town from Blue Square Premier club Guiseley and Tom Matthews, a striker of note with West Riding CAL side Storthes Hall, will add more options up front as Town also pitch in to a busy period of league and cup activity over the next six weeks.
Sheffield club Parkgate, two places above Town in the table and with one more point - 23 to Town’s 22 - drew 2-2 at home with Staveley MW last Saturday, a notable result against a team one place above them in fifth place in the Baris NCEL Premier League table.
One time leaders Town might be in eigth place going into this game but they are only four points behind current leaders Bridlington Town.
