Brighouse hit the front with 17 minutes left when Ernest Boafo headed home from five yards following a corner.

Robinson ensured Brighouse’s seventh away win of the season when he nodded in following fine work from Danny Facey on 84 minutes.

Quinn’s men remain 14th but can finish at least a couple of places higher with wins in their final two games at Hove Edge.

They play the teams immediately above them in the table, Bamber Bridge on Monday and Mossley next Saturday.
