Take it one game at a time and get the three points is the message Brighouse Town manager Paul Quinn is giving his squad.

Brighouse are still in an excellent position to challenge for the title having gone top in midweek, and travel to take on a Staveley Miners Welfare side who are going through a bad patch tomorrow.

Speaking after taking in Tuesday night’s between Liversedge and fellow promotion-hopefuls Bridlington Town, 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 last Saturday we had to grind out the win and that is what it is all about at this point in the season.”

Centre-back Ben Charlesworth did a sterling job up front for Town against Armthorpe with leading goalscorer Tom Matthews suspended.

Charlesworth, who has played up front before, notched twice with Danny Naidole grabbing the other

“It is not Ben’s first time in that position, he has got some experience and he has been taking his chances well,” added Quinn.

“It is nice to see that we have that flexibility within the squad.

“We have some tough games coming up but by hook or by crook we will have to come away with three points from each.”

Brighouse Ladies put in a tremendous team performance to brush aside Bradford Park Avenue 5-0.

Lauren Doyle set them on their way after 10 minutes and doubled their advantage when Charlotte Reid’s free kick found Vanessa Holroyd who poked home from six yards.

Leanne Smith added the third and the game was all but over by half-time when Sheridan Drake fired a rocket shot into the bottom corner.

Park Avenue came out strongly in the second half,but Smith wrapped things up following a corner.
