Paul Quinn’s side are eighth in the Evo Stik NPL’s First Division North ahead of Monday’s home clash with Ossett Town, who are second after being held 1-1 at home by Ramsbottom yesterday.

Both of tomorrow’s rivals took a first half lead and were hauled back by a second half penalty.

James Pollard headed Brighouse in front after six minutes from a corner to the near post but Jamie Milligan levelled from the spot on 68 minutes for 11th-placed Bamber Bridge.

Brighouse’s next league outing is away to bottom side Burscough next Saturday.
