Brighouse Town hope extra work will play off in big FA Vase tie

PAUL QUINN has left no stone unturned in his bid to lead Brighouse Town into the last 32 of the FA Vase at the expense of Holbrook Sports tomorrow.

PAUL QUINN has left no stone unturned in his bid to lead Brighouse Town into the last 32 of the FA Vase at the expense of Holbrook Sports tomorrow.

He will lead his squad through a special tune-up session tonight having taken a first-hand look at the East Midlands Counties League side on Tuesday.

Third-round opponents Holbrook were beaten 2-1 by Chesterfield in the Derbyshire Senior Cup, their first defeat in seven games.

Quinn, whose father Gerry led Emley to the FA Vase final at Wembley back in 1988, explained: “It’s hard to assess sides when they play in other leagues.

“We’ve tried to do as much homework as possible – my dad went to watch them last Saturday – and come up with a plan we think will work.

“The (Baris Northern Counties East) League is our real priority, but we would love to have a good run in this competition.

“We’ve already gone further than any Brighouse side has before, and with the next round being national as opposed to regionalised, it could be very interesting.

“We trained as normal on Wednesday, and we will have a final run through things tonight. Hopefully that will give us that little edge.”

FC Halifax Town are in Blue Square North action at Worcester City after home postponements against Solihull Moors last Saturday and Harrogate Town on Wednesday.

Next Tuesday’s derby at Guiseley has also been postponed – because the Nethermoor side are in West Riding County Cup action.
