PREVIEW | Brighouse Town (A)
Dunston make the journey to Brighouse Town looking to kickstart a good run of form ahead of the end-of-season run in, after an inconsistent few weeks. The last five games in the Northern Premier League East Division has seen Dunston pick up just one win - a 2-0 victory away at Sheffield FC. A battling point was gained against Stockton Town last time out at the UTS Stadium, but losses to Long Eaton United, Pontefract Collieries and Lincoln United has seen Dunston slip out of the playoff places. With ten big games remaining, now is the perfect time to get back to winning ways.
Our hosts Brighouse Town have also struggled for form over the last few weeks. They have picked up just one win from their last seven games, and will also be looking to reignite some form to push them away from the relegation dogfight. Last time out, they were beaten at home by Bridlington Town 3-2.
The sides have already met once this season, with Dunston running out 4-0 winners at the UTS Stadium in late October thanks to goals from Will Jenkins, Richard Coulson, Terry Galbraith and Jack Elliott. Dunston will be looking for a repeat of that performance this time around.
