Brighouse Town 1 Darlington 1883 3
Brighouse Town may have suffered defeat in their Evo-Stik NPL Division One North clash last night, but they were far from disgraced in an excellent advertisement for the division.
The home side opened their account in the first minute when Danny Naidole’s effort was parried by ‘keeper Peter Jameson for Barrie Frankland to score his first goal for the club.
Darlington responded in the ninth minute with a goal from Amar Purewal after good work from Adam Mitchell.
The 445 crowd were treated to some frenetic action at both ends before Darlington scored their second with Mitchell setting up Jordan Robinson.
The visitors then made it 3-1 before the break with Purewal bagging his second.
Both teams continued to create chances with Naidole denied by Jameson while James Burke had a shot on target but his attempt was bundled away.
