Brighouse Town boss Paul Quinn is urging his players to maintain focus on the league as the countdown to their big FA Cup trip to Stockport County continues.
The Northern Counties East League Premier Division side go to Garforth Town tomorrow and Parkgate on Tuesday before visiting Edgeley Park in the second round qualifying in eight days’ time.
Brighouse are eighth after Tuesday’s 3-2 home win over Pickering Town, sealed by Ryan Hall (2) and Tom Mathews, who now has 10 goals for the season.
“We’re all looking forward to the challenge of facing Stockport, but the league is our bread and butter, and it’s vital we carry on picking up points,” said Quinn.
In Division I, seventh-placed AFC Emley go to Appleby Frodingham with a second successive win in their sights.
Brighouse’s development team were 4-2 winners at Emley in the Galaxy Lancashire League East Division, with Eli Hey scoring all their goals.
Emley Under 19s won 10-2 at Field in their first Northern Alliance West Division game.
Ruben Jerome scored four times.
