Brighouse Town were unable to hold onto a second half lead as Burscough hit back to take the spoils 2-1 in their Evo-Stik Northern Premier League first division clash.

Both sides cancelled each other out in the first period and it was Town who finally broke the deadlock when Ben Thornton squared the ball and it bounced off Leon Henry’s shin and into the net.

The lead lasted 10 minutes when Phil Quirk levelled for the hosts. The same player then made the points safe when he netted his second after 81 minutes.
