BRIGHOUSE Town are already doing their homework on Holbrook Sports as they plan to extend their club record-breaking run in the FA Vase.
The Derbyshire side come to the Dual Seal Stadium for one of 32 third-round ties on Saturday, December 8.
While Holbrook made round five in 2010-11, Brighouse’s previous best in the competition is reaching round one the same season.
On paper, Paul Quinn’s side, who host Barton Town Old Boys in the Baris Northern Counties East League Premier Division tonight, have a good chance of progress.
Holbrook play in the East Midlands Counties League, a level below Brighouse on the football pyramid.
“We didn’t know too much about them when the names came out of the hat, but that is already changing,” said Brighouse vice-chairman Ray McLaughlin.
“It’s an important competition as far as we are concerned, and we want to go as far as possible.
“We’ll check them out thoroughly and give them plenty of respect, but this is a tie we badly want to win.”
Top scorer Tom Mathews notched twice to take his season’s haul to 26 as Brighouse won 3-1 after extra time at NCEL Premier Division rivals Staveley MW to make yesterday’s draw, which was made at Wembley.
Each of the 32 winners will pocket £1,500 in prize money.
Brighouse go into tonight’s clash (7.45) in fourth place, two places and a point ahead of Barton, from the South side of the River Humber.
“We’re ready for a tough game,” added McLaughlin.
