BRADFORD Park Avenue travel to Lincolnshire tonight to take on Gainsborough Trinity in the Vanarama National League North on what is a very busy evening for the area’s non-league clubs.

Mark Bower’s Avenue will be hoping to get back to winning ways after being frustrated at Stockport County on Saturday and Chorley at home on Bank Holiday Monday.

Both games ended goalless, although Avenue could easily have won both, and they certainly created the better chances at Edgeley Park at the weekend.

Avenue are unbeaten in their last four games and are still inside the top half of the table, despite those two draws, and have conceded only one goal in that sequence.

Bower said: “We have come back well from a difficult period. We conceded ten goals and scored just one in three straight defeats before getting back to wins over FC United of Manchester and away at Telford United.

“If you would have offered us two wins, three clean sheets, seven goals scored and eight points from a possible 12 after the three losses, we wouldn’t have just snatched your hand off - we would have wrapped you up and taken you home.”

Trinity also recovered from a run of defeats and drew 1-1 at Spennymoor Town at the weekend after beating basement outfit North Ferriby United 2-0 on Bank Holiday Monday.

However, they are only just above FC United in the table.

The Mancunians are in the relegation places, but only goal difference is keeping Trinity above the drop zone at this stage.

Farsley Celtic have the chance to exact swift revenge as they host Stalybridge Celtic in the Evo-Stik League Premier Division, just three days after the visitors knocked Farsley out of the FA Cup.

Stalybridge are rock bottom in the league but they stunned Adam Lakeland’s men with a stoppage-time winner in a 2-1 cup victory at Bower Fold.

They have lost five of their six league fixtures this term, but have lost all three of their away games, while Farsley have lost just one of their opening six games and are riding high in fourth.

In the lower tier of the Evo-Stik League, Brighouse Town face a difficult fixture in Division One North as they head to Glossop North End.

It is ninth hosting tenth as clubs with identical won, drawn and lost records meet.

The Derbyshire hosts have the advantage in the goals-difference column, but they were beaten 4-2 at Ramsbottom United at the weekend, while Vill Powell’s Town took a point from a keen derby at Ossett Albion.

Liversedge have wrestled home advantage from their Emirates FA Cup first qualifying round tie against Sunderland Ryhope CA.

The initial meeting in the north east ended goalless, so the sides must do battle again, and after yesterday lunchtime's draw the winners of tonight’s replay know that they will travel to Steve Kittrick’s Scarborough Athletic in the second qualifying round.

Sedge’s Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division rivals Albion Sports secured home advantage in the draw and will host Hallmark Security League Premier Division side Ashton Athletic.

Liversedge's counterparts Thackley are already out of the FA Cup but have an opportunity to improve their league placing tonight.

The Dennyboys are a disappointing 14th after two victories, two draws and two defeats.

Tonight’s visitors are lowly Bottesford Town, who have banked only three points from their first five league games.

However, Bottesford will be looking for a reaction after their FA Cup exit at home to Shildon at the weekend.

Silsden will be looking to extend their 100 per cent start to the season in the lower tier of the Hallmark Security League as they welcome Atherton LR to the Cobbydale Construction Stadium.

Danny Forrest's Cobbydalers are two points clear at the top of Division One having played six matches, while their mid-table visitors have taken just seven points from five games.
