PREVIEW | Brighouse Town (A)

The Bulls look to continue their unbeaten start to 2019 with a positive result at another promotion-chasing side in Brighouse Town.

AFC are currently unbeaten in four league games, taking five points from a possible nine against high-flying opponents.

Now 17th in the East Division table, AFC are within two points of 14th, with the potential of leapfrogging Pickering Town if they find victory on Saturday.



Second-placed Brighouse have enjoyed a vast improvement from last season, only managing to consolidate their position in the old North Division at a lowly 17th place last season.

With the third-best defensive record in the division, Town have proven to be a tough team to break down, although 2019 lived up to its reputation for change as Brighouse were thrashed 4-0 by Ossett United on New Year's Day.

Just three points off league leaders Morpeth, Town have a real chance of promotion this season and will be looking to build on a 3-1 win at Belper Town.



Defender Jack Broadhead's hopes of a first team return this season look bleak after confirmation of a fractured leg.

All other squad members are fit and available for Rudy Funk's selection, apart from striker Grant Ryan who made a long-term loan return to former club Hinckley for game time.
